The Tour Coordinator Javier made a custom tour for my group which included the canal on the Atlantic side, the city tour and lunch at excellent restaurants. I had a group of 58 persons and we were able to tour and enjoy safely with the assistance of the coordinator and his friendly assistance. This company is excellent with service and friendliness and price.

Fantastic day with Adventuras Panama. This was not your normal lazy river rafting trip. Class 3 and 4 rapids as well as some hiking around water falls. Javier and Fabian were fantastic. Such a wonderful day and fantastic country. Everything was taken care of and we felt safe the entire time. This is a fantastic tour if you are looking for adventure. Can't wait to come back. #adventuraspanama

Going through the Bayano Caves was an amazing experience. Our guide was delightful, he arrived on time, was very knowledgable, and even pulled over once so we could look at some monkeys in a tree. This tour stopped at a wonderful family cabin where we left some of our things while in the cave and have a wonderful fish lunch after. The cave itself was really interesting and beautiful, though nowhere is more beautiful than the canyon on the other side. Nobody else was signed up for the tour yesterday, so it ended up being a private tour for my husband and I, which was really nice. Note - this tour is not for everyone. It requires a fair bit of physical fitness and a little bravery. You need to be able to navigate over invisible rocks underwater, do a small amount of rock climbing, and you may have to swim a bit. It is worth it, but if you have any mobility issues at all, this likely isn't your best activity.

book this tour as it will be the best tour you will do in Panama. my wife and i went on this in February 2020 and it was an amazing day. you hike in the jungle, wade across beautiful streams, raft down the Chagres river and then get picked up by an indigenous tribe and taken back to a waiting pickup across a lake. Javier is a great guide - he really knows the jungle and the river. If you want a truly memorable holiday - book this tour. you will not be disappointed. it really was fantastic. Javier runs the only tour to do this so you have the river to yourself. I cannot recommend this trip enough - its a long day but you will keep great memories forever. this deserves to be on your bucket list of things to do in your life!

A friend and travel companion worked with Javier to create a tour that pieced together many of the options that Adventures Panama offers, to allow an activity-packed trip through Panama that lasted 9 days. From the moment we arrived in Panama City until the day we left, we felt well taken care of. Javier is an excellent communicator (we used What's App to keep everyone in our group of 5 included in day-to-day updates), very organized and flexible to the changes that sometimes arise with travel. We first visited the Guna Yala region on the Caribbean side, where there was plenty of time to explore and learn about the nearby community and snorkel the beautiful coral reef, as well as ample time for napping in hammocks on the front porch of our overwater palapa-style bungalows. We enjoyed ultra-fresh seafood throughout our stay there, as the local fishermen delivered their catch daily. :) We toured the ancient ruins of "old Panama" or Panama Viejo, as well as the "other" old Panama, the colonial section of Panama City known as Casco Antiguo - our local guide Juan was a wealth of information about Panama's history. We also traveled to the highlands & stayed in the charming mountain town of Boquete. The cool breezes and mountain air were a welcome change from the tropical weather of the lowlands. Boquete has made a name for itself for producing high-end specialty coffee, and we were fortunate enough to spend an entire day (hands down my favorite day of the entire trip!) on a small coffee farm that also offers a hike through its gorgeous cloud forest, with a sighting of both a male and female resplendent quetzal (!), up and down hills and out to a lookout point to take in the view of nearby 11,000 foot Volcan Baru and the surrounding valley. We were surprised by an incredible gourmet lunch prepared by proprietors Rolando & Gabriella. Our afternoon wrapped up with a delicious coffee tasting. In the highlands we also rafted river rapids, did a thrilling zipline tour through the cloud forest canopy AND because of the timing of our trip, spent a wonderful evening ringing in the new year at the Panamonte Inn. WOW. Of course, a trip to Panama would not be complete without visiting the Panama Canal. We managed to get to see locks on both the Pacific and Caribbean sides. Fascinating! Our final full day in Panama we kayaked the Chagres River (with local guide Juan) to the point at which it meets the Caribbean Sea at Fort San Lorenzo. I was pleased that we did NOT see any crocodiles in the river during the 2 hours we spend paddling. :) I highly recommend Adventures Panama and am so happy to have been able to travel to this part of the world.
