We really enjoyed this tour to see the flora and fauna. We were whisked from port in a nice van after a tour of the local (and amazing) fish market, and travelled to the rainforest (which is a substantial walk/hike, not for those of limited mobility). Our guide, Daniel, was superb and spoke very good English (we were lucky, during the week he’s a professor) and had great insight as well as knowing how to avoid the big bus tours/crowds. We packed a lot into the tour to also see the Panama hat demonstration, lunch at a local restaurant (ok, but not great service, but we were having so much fun), visit the memorial of the country hero and more.

Fernando was very nice and knowledgeable. He was friendly and helpful and led us on a 90 minute tour of Pacoche Rainforest. Due to COVID we wanted to travel in our own transportation, and SOS and Fernando were very accommodating. Fernando in his car led our car following from our AirBnB to the rainforest, where we were met by a forest ranger.
The adults and our 16 year old very very much enjoyed the tour. Thank you!

The things we saw were amazing, howler monkeys, Panama hat demonstration, San Lorenzo. Our bus, however, was filthy and in need of repair. The brakes sounded like they would go out at any moment. Great itinerary!

Fernando was an excellent guide- funny, flexible and a wonderful translator. He was a great help in the rain forest where my rusty Spanish was not sufficient to understand guide. He also made interesting stops at the lighthouse and pacocha Museum, where his language skills were invaluable. We had a very generous and tasty lunch at San Mateo beach, and Fernando helped us set up some kayak rentals for the following day.
