Amazing Panama, July 2010
I have been thinking of
the words I can use to describe my feelings from our
adventure. I am unable to come up with anything that even remotely conveys
I decided long before
Panama that I was not
going to try to imagine how it would be or what I would see. This was the
most pleasant way to experience
Panama. I was
presented with daily excursions that were planned from morning hotel pickup
to night time drop off.
Having Joshua as our
Panama City guide/ driver on the
first and last days in the city was amazing. He is extremely warm, friendly,
knowledgeable and very proud of the work he does in his country. Made me
feel very welcome in
Panama and I hope to have
him show us around next time we visit
The Chagres Challenge was
probably my most favorite adventure ever! I enjoyed every minute of it from
being picked up at the hotel at 5am, 4 wheel driving with Benito (the best
driver I know), hiking the trails to the river for 3 and a half hours, a 5
hour raft ride that was simply incredible, then yet another ride for an hour
and a half in a Cayuco that almost didn’t hold us all! All I can say is I
was blown away by your guides, Fabio was extremely friendly (you can tell he
loves what he does), Nelson is clearly the best at what he does, Gabriel was
quiet at first then we couldn’t get him to quite down- very kind man, then
there was Francisco in the kayak, he never stopped smiling.
P.S. The photo shows
the smile I had pretty much the entire trip, every day!!
The rest of the trip was
equally exciting, I wouldn’t change any bit of it. The order of how we saw
things worked out well, to be able to have a little relaxing time in Kuna
Yala between the exciting adventures was incredible.
I am certain my mom and
sister had just as good of a time and I would imagine they will email you
some thoughts soon if not already. I can’t say enough about how well our
days were planned, I felt very well taken care of by all your men and know
my experience was so much better than it would have been if we didn’t work
with Adventuras Panama!
I hope to be back soon and
see more of a very special country.
"The Chagres Challenge was fantastic!
I just wanted to thank you and your colleages for an amazing experience!
The Chagres Challenge was fantastic! It was a wonderful mix of driving,
hiking and boating. The guides on this trip were not only extremely
professional and knowledgable about Panama and its fauna and flora, but
really personable and amazing. It was a pleasure to spend the day with
them learning about the many wonderful aspects of Panama.
I have three family members coming to visit me here in Panama from July
29th through August 4th. I sent them the link to your website
and depending on what they're interested in doing while they're here in
Panama, I would like to see what kind of packages might be available for
them through Aventuras Panama.
Thanks again for a wonderful experience!
Family Vacations in Panama
Joe and Beth Robles, together with their 6 kids, Hanna(18), Rebeca(17),
David(14) , Raquel(10), Sara(7), and Daniel (5) dare to trust me with
recommendations for their summer break in Panama.
With only 15 days, and always keeping costs in mind, I
suggested them Boquete(Chiriqui), Palenque(Colon), and Chagres National Park
(Colon). They also visited El Valle, Punta Chame, and of course, Panama
They only took close to 2,000 shots and
here we share a few ones.
is also a family destinations. And very affordable if you dare to rent
your own transportation(I do not recommend it, not in Panama), and search for
houses to rent.
The Robles did not get involved in any "tipical"
tourist most do. They trusted me with what our family
usually do. And they got the vacations of their live time !
Quality time, Quality destinations and at affordable prices.
