We saw the major highlights but we felt there were other things we left such as views from the high point in Panama City . The guide was just knowledgeable and could have been better. Would recommend you research the... More

Panama Trails organised a 2 week holiday for us in Panama and Costa Rica. Everything was arranged for us and the suggested itinerary and places to stay were spot on. It made the process of organising a complex trip so straightforward. I was pregnant, and they were invariably courteous and gave really considerate advice in what I should and shouldn't... More

During my life, I have been to 64 countries, and our vacation with Panama Trails was the best planned and executed trip that I have ever experienced. The key to a great trip - "planning and working out the details prior to arriving", so everyone knows what to expect and set expectations. Daniel Carbone of Panama Trails, answered all my... More
