2. Mamoni Flooded Trip during the Dry Season - Feb 17, 2008


It certainly took us by surprise.  This is the fourth time in 10 yrs that we had to hike out and the first one that occurred during the dry season.  We were paddling duckies !

After finishing lunch by the river we were ready to go for the second leg of the journey, but noticed the water level was going up quickly and instead of going toward the river we went almost running, taking everything we could, up nearby hills. 

When we turned back to see the river it just wasn´t the same. Now  it had about twice as much water, it was muddy and wild.  Quite amazing !

1.  Red Bull Team Building Event, March 5, 2008

10 rappel lines ready to go Red Bull staff member rappels at Parque Los Guayacanes Rafael Montilla from Aventuras Panama overlooks descend Rappeling at Behania, Panama with Aventuras Panama

Around hundred persons of the Red Bull Organization from  its staff in America gathered in central Panamá for a Team Building dynamic.

They were organized in 10 groups of 10 persons and asked to complete certain tasks around Panama City.  These tasks included rappeling down a 100 ft  height rock wall at  "Parque Los Guayacanes" in Bethania,  hiking trails at Parque Soberania, diving at Gamboa, selling Red Bull drinks in the street, etc., etc.

In a Panama Amazing Race set up they were able to achieve its objective:  work as a team in a competitive and unexpected enviroment.

Aventuras Panama was contacted by our colleague in Costa Rica,  Juan Amiguetti from Aguas Bravas, to assist him on prospecting sites and set up and operate 10 rappel lines.
