Had an incredible (and long) day experiencing the Chagres Challenge with Aventuras Panama, and I'm so glad I did! We were picked up promptly at 5:00am and spent the next 15 hours hiking, driving, rafting, eating, learning, laughing, and swimming all over some beautiful areas outside Panama City. They're not joking when they call it a "challenge", but Aventuras handled... More

Thank you very much for your Excellent review in our Chagres Challenge. This is a full day jungle expedition, from sunrise to sunset. By far my favorite trip if I have to choose for a day trip.

We took the The Chagres Challenge and we where picked up at our hotel right on time 5:00am. We then drove to our first stop where we had a great breakfast with coffee and got more details on our trip. After breakfast we took an off road ride to the begging of our trek at a beautiful river edge valley.... More

We took A.P.'s canal kayak trip in April. Don't bother. If you want to see the big ships on the canal, go stand at Mira Flores locks. If you want to see the jungle and wildlife, pick another trip and operator. Their website states "Monkeys are almost guarantee to be encountered" - Not! No howlers, no spiders, no capuchinos. They...

My boyfriend and I decided to check out Adventuras Panama due to the White Water Rafting they offered. Let me start by saying- we are pretty adventurous and between this and a few Scuba dives, Adventuras Panama Chagres Challenge was by far my favorite. Our guide was very awesome. We were picked up at our hotel early (5:30 a.m.) and... More

Thank you very much for your Excellent Review in our Chagres Challenge. We try to sale this trip more as a Jungle Expedition than a river rafting trip since it does have some exciting rapids but not enough to be perceived as a white water rafting trip. Not enough to stand out of everything else participant experience in this "from... More

Love the active and cultural portions. Beach time would have been better as a couple, family or as a larger group. I usually travel with a book but managed to forget one this time. A book would have been good to have for the extensive down time.

Thank you very much for your "Very Good" review in our Chagres and Guna Yala Expedition. Our trip schedules daily kayaking and snorkeling circuits, usually from 9:00am to 12:00pm, and from 1:30:pm to 4:00pm. If the group decides to have a more relaxing or more demanding routine we do adjust to its requirement. I hope that we can share with... More

Tour was very good. Geronimo and the driver picked our group up at the Sortis Hotel and took us directly to the Miraflores Visitor Center. Our guide (Geronimo) was incredibly knowledgeable about the city of Panama, the Panama Canal, etc. He walked us through the center, handled all details of our lunch at the Atlantic-Pacific Restaurant, was our personal guide...

My girlfriend and I did the Chagres River Challenge then trekked out to the Guna Yala (San Blas) Islands for four days and three nights. Completely awesome experience. The Chagres River Challenge starts out early in the morning with approximately a two hour 4x4 Land Cruiser ride out into the Chagres National Park. We then hiked about 4.5 miles through... More

We planned our trip ourselves but worked with Adventures Panama for day tours, home reservations and transfers. Adventuras was perfect on all accounts. Traveling frequently, it's always a relief to have the confidence that your ride is going to show up when you arrive at your destination. Priceless!

I joined a five day, four night camping and kayaking trip in the San Blas islands. The island where we stayed was beautiful. Every day we kayaked to one or two different islands where we swam and snorkeled. Each island was owned by different Kuna families. It was interesting to get a glimpse into how the Kuna lived.
