This was a very different experience from the usual factory tours. Not only is it about the highly complex process of reproducing Panama's art in the form of jewelry, it is a lesson in the history of the country. We were fortunate to meet Agnes who's knowledge and passion made the tour so memorable. Allow plenty of time to visit... More

We took a tour of Reprosa and Found it fascinating. They walk you through the manufacturing process to make both silver and gold huaca ( burial relics found at various sites in Panama ) reproductions. There is a sort of catwalk that goes over the manufacturing area and you can see all the work being done. In a few places,... More

Monica took our small group of 3 on a tour and waited on us in the sales room. My friends and I commented latter that this was one of the nicest experiences we had in Panama. The tour made the gold and silver metal process real for us. Moreover, Monica was very well informed on the country¹s history and professional... More

We had a Monday morning in Panama City to kill and some of the museum sites were closed so we went to a tour at the Reprosas factory. I thought it was great and very detailed on the process for recreating some of the treasures created by the indigenous tribes in Panama. The guide was very knowledgeable and being able... More

This is a great place to see and learn about Panamanian ancient cultures and art through modern re-creations using current art & jewelry technology. The tour and film is not long but gives you a great overview of how the ancient art is preserved to today. You will then visit the various stages of how the artwork is transformed into... More

An excellent tour that moves along, while giving both a history of the antiquities of Panama and a demonstration of how they recreate the Indian art that has been preserved. At the end of the tour, you can purchase the art and jewelry pieces that you see being made.....at very attractive prices! Highly recommended.

It is worth the effort of getting to Reprosa. The tour is short but interesting and a little bit hands on. There is a well stocked shop but not hard sell. The firm is small but passionate about promoting Panama. Try and get on an organised tour has taxi drivers have difficulty finding it in an industrial area and are... More

This was a wonderful way to learn some history of Panama and its people. The tour was excellent and I even got to sandblast some silver pieces. The tour was private for no one else was there on a Wednesday at 2pm. No fee either. Saw the lost wax process. Entertaining and informative. Its in the midst of an industrial... More
