“Excellent service, beginning to end”

We booked the canoe trip with these guys as well and the Indian village tour both were first rate! They went out of the way to take care of us and were extremely flexible when needed.

“Rafting in low season”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

There wasn't much water in Rio Grande when we went rafting, it was the dry season. But we still had lots of fun.

Thank you very much for your Excellent Review.

It was not until recent years that Aventuras Panama discovered "duckies", inflatable tandem kayaks, which had made possible to raft rivers Mamoni and Rio Grande and their lower water level and still have fun because although the rivers are slower it does require more involvement of paddlers. Check out or facebook for some great shots rafting Mamoni River with duckies.

Hope to see you back on it during the rainy season !

“Mamoni River Duckies”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

With 5 others we did the Mamoni River in "duckies". Two of us had done the river in rafts with Aventuras Panama before and had a blast. This time was just as much fun. Less water and more paddling, but it couldn't have been a better day. We had two great guides, one of whom, Chris was American and the other Fabian, Panamanian. So language was no problem for our two companions. We saw parrots, monkeys and iquanas; had a great lunch and the swimming was relaxing. This river is probably the prettiest I've been on including others in Central America and Europe. Bottom line: I think Adventuras Panama is a great tour company with great choices for multiple adventures throughout Panama.

Thank you very much for your Excellent Review

Thanks to the use of smaller rafts and duckies we had extended our rafting season almost year-round.

Take a look at our facebook and you will see some incredible pictures of rafting in duckies at Mamoni.

“GATUN LAKE KAYAKING - WONDERFUL”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

Living in Panama, sometimes we do not take full advantage the the amazing outdoors, here is almost everything you want to do in the tropics, this time was taking advantage of the Gatun Lake, not many countries you can paddle at the same time a big Panamax Ship is passing in front of you while crossing the Panama Canal. But also the amazing biodiversity that can be closely seen while you are enjoying a great adventure. It is just amazing...
Regarding the tour, I only have great things to say, wonderful people, very responsible and always aware of their guests, Chris you rule... What a better way to spend a Saturday.
I can only summarize this day in one word AWESOME

“Kayking the Chagres River”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

On our last day in Panama we decided to go on a day kayak trip down the River. We were picked up at hotel and drove up to Gatun Locks were we put in the kayaks just past Gatun Dam.
We had 2 guides- a local guide who knew the river and an English speaking guide Chris both were very informative.
We paddled about 9km down the river to the opening of the Caribbean Sea.
After a tour and light lunch at San Lorenzo Fort we returned to Panama city making it a full day excursion.
If you are looking for a unique experience in Panama I highly recommend it
