Trekking in the jungle in Panama
 10% of the world's total bird species reside in a country the size of Ireland. That alone says enough about Panama's amazing biodiversity.

Favourites from the agency
  • Panama is famous for its friendly sloths that can be seen in a number of places across the country.
  • Trekking through the jungle is a great experience in itself, but also allows you to immerse yourself in Panama's lush greenery and wildlife!
  • The amazing view of the Cloud Forest around Boquete is not to be missed during a trip here.
  • Panama is home to thousands of species of plant, animal, and bird. One of our personal favourites is the friendly stick insect!

    Best parts:
    The trip was great, from start to finish. The driver Felix was courteous on time and provided great service. The Canak Tiur was good but longer than expected due to traffic on the canal. Normally there are 399 peopke on this boat ; our trip was only 90 which was much better otherwise it would have been tough to get around.’ Dario our private guide for the city tour was Great a very knowledgeable young man, well educated and did a fine job.
    Worst parts:
    Our hotel was lovely ********** but don’t send any guests there it has 3?fkoors and the top floor is a disco Lazatea which goes from 10-3:09an every night. Terrible we went up there for a drink at 6:00 pm and had to leave due to the music, we asked them to turn it down but they wouldnt. We moved our room from 2 bd floor to the 1st no balcony but it smelled mouldy with no window. For the money spent not a good place to stay. Everyone was complaining to the staff. Great restaurant next door *********** but that doesn’t help when you have had no sleep.
    Summary:
    Other than the Hotel experience we were happy. Panama is an interesting city very diversified and clean.

I am happy that you liked our country and the tours,but very sorry about the hotel Casa Panama.Unfortunately they have opened that disco recently....... Latin Americans are used to loud music and noise in general so they tend not to understand North Americans and Europeans exasperation about that problem.But be sure that we are going to send them your feed back. Kind regards PhilippeSee more

    Best parts:
    We had just 6 days to see Panama AND we wanted to relax on the beach. We got it all, we had an excellent sampling of the highlights of the country. All the accommodations were very good, the drivers were on time, friendly and helpful and we thoroughly enjoyed our time in the country.
    Worst parts:
    It was a lot of hassle to get to where we wanted to go. We had to leave at 6:00 a.m. from Boquete and drive 4 hours over a dicey mountain road to get to the boat that took 40 mins. to get to Boca to get to the taxi that bumped and swayed for 1/2 hour over a sand-filled road that barely existed to get to our hotel.
    Summary:
    We flew into Panama City at 8:00 in the morning, were met by a very friendly driver who stayed with us for all the Panama City trips.

He took us to meet our guide for a 5 hour tour of the Panama Canal and the Biodiversity Museum. We then checked into our hotel and had a lovely afternoon/evening in *************. We then flew to Boquete to spend time in the mountains and jungle. After 2 nghts we drove over the mountains to get to Bocas de Toro and had a lovely 2-day stay at the ************** Hotel on *****************.See more
