I. Trip Report                                                                                                     

1.  Portobelo  Sea Kayaking Expedition - May 11, 2008


So close by, only 1.5 hour from Panama City, and so much around it once you arrive that we had to try it out and yes it has been approved as a new Aventuras Panama destination: Portobelo, Colón

These pictures were taken by Dimas Pino during the exploratory trip we made, as  scheduled in  past  Atrevete a Vivir montly trips.

Our tour will offer Portobelo associated spaniard conquistadores history, snorkeling and sea kayaking.  Just the served octopus with coconut rice was worth the trip.

Come join us, someday you might be the one to find the elusive Sir Francis Drake  cophin of lead.

1.  Chiriqui Viejo River White Water Kayaking - May 17-18


Alexandra, Dimas and Javier teamed up to paddle the lower section of Chiriqui Viejo, from Salsipuedes to Paso Canoas. 

Water level was so great that we did it twice during the morning.  Alexandra, 17, was the only one that didn´t swin, hurra Alex !

1.  Rafting Season 2008 under way

Yes, we had our first rafting trips with the floods that just welcomed the rainy season.  In a Mamoni River trip we had to go for the smaller Pacora River in up to 16´rafts to avoid cancelling the trips.  At the end of the same week we had to paddle Mamoni in duckies due to low water conditions !

I estimate that by mid june water should level to normal so make plans to paddle soon.

The World´s smallest one person helicopter

The GEN H-4 from Gene corporation - Japan is your personal helicopter. It comes with a seat and landing gear so all you have to do is strap on and you are ready to go. Unlike traditional helicopters it has 2 sets of coaxial, contra-rotating rotors (KA-52 Hokum) which eliminates the need of a tail rotor for balancing. The rotors have a length of only 4 meters so no parking problems too. It is powered by 4 lightweight 125 cc 2 cylinder engines which use standard gasoline. The GEN H-4 can fly to a maximum altitude of 1000 meters at a top speed of 90 km/hr (59 mph) for upto 30 minutes. You dont require a license to fly the GEN H-4 in Japan and the inventors claim it is easy as riding a bicycle and with just 2 hours of practice you can master it. The controls also resemble a bicycle handle.

Gene corp is selling it as assembly kits. It is available in Japan for 3,780,000 Yen ($ 32,500).
