Day 2 Wildlife Boat Tour, Panama Canal, Beach & Rainforest Night Walk

This morning we’ll take you on a wildlife boat tour in the Panama Canal! We will pass next to huge cargo ships passing through, however, the fun part starts when we go exploring narrow channels in the surrounding rainforest looking for exotic tropical birds, iguanas, sloths, and monkeys in their natural environment. Your pictures will surprise everyone when told they were taken at the Panama Canal. After that, we will visit the better known part of the Canal to see a ship going through the locks. We cross the bridge over the Canal and move on to the beach, where you can rent surf boards, take a surf lesson, or just go for a refreshing swim. Tonight we stay in the mountains, and at night you will be invited to go with the guides for a walk in the jungle looking for nocturnal frogs.

Meals: Breakfast | Lunch | Dinner

Day 3 Local Culture, Hiking to Waterfalls & Sunset Hike

We start the day by introducing you to Panamanian fry bread or “hojaldres”, which you will probably love and be looking forward to them the next morning. Today is about immersion in the local culture and this is a good way to start. We will go off the beaten path to an organic farm and spend some time with the friendly family that lives there. Their graciousness of inviting us into their home to experience their way of life is something special that you will cherish for a long time. From here we will hike to nearby waterfalls and swim in natural stone pools. On the trails you will have the opportunity to see fruit trees, flowers, and spot colorful butterflies. Late afternoon we go to one of the nearby hills for a sunset hike. It will be the “golden hour” as we get to the top, perfect to take amazing pictures.

Meals: Breakfast | Lunch | Dinner

Day 4 River Tubing & Fun at the Beach

After a delicious Panamanian breakfast of fruit, scrambled eggs, “hojaldres” of course, and a good cup of coffee, we put on our swimsuits and go to the river to have some fun. We suit up with a life-vests, sit on a big inflatable tube, and let the river current do the rest. The scenery along this joy ride is absolutely fantastic. Then we come down from the mountains and go to one of the longest beaches in Central America, with miles upon miles of unpopulated coastline stretching as far as the eye can see. The beach is one of those that remain shallow for a very long way, the water is warm, the sand is soft, and it’s a lot of fun to play in the waves. The hotel where we will be staying at is located right next to the beach, so you can grab a beach chair and see the sun go down over the Pacific.

Meals: Breakfast | Lunch

Day 5 Beach, River Canyon & Boquete

Wake up to the sound of the waves and walk a few steps from your room to enjoy the ocean breeze and the beautiful view. After a few more pictures, we say goodbye to this tropical paradise and shortly thereafter say hello to a new one, this time a river canyon were we can go for a refreshing dip and have some fun with the local kids jumping to the water from the rocks. From here we move on to Boquete, Panama's #1 mountain town nestled in a valley where flowers bloom everywhere and rainbows are a common sight. On the surrounding mountains you will find small family-run coffee farms producing some of the highest quality coffee in the world. There will be time to go for a walk around town and have dinner in one of the many excellent restaurants in town.
