Enjoy the Caribbean Coast of Panama and on the same day before nightfall, you will be able to have dinner on the Pacific.

Part of this incredible adventure, is the crossing in front of the two locks of the Panama Canal, on the Caribbean side, to then go to the region known as La Costa Abajo de Colón, and thus, enter the jungle of San Lorenzo National Park and travel in time and transport us to the time of the conquistadors and the pirates' journeys in search of the riches that transited Panama from the lands of South America. On our way by car through this Caribbean jungle, we may observe, the passage of some of the species of mammals, birds or reptiles that inhabit the reserve.

At the Castillo del Chagres, as it was known at Fort San Lorenzo, it is the place where we make a walk among its ruins, silent witnesses of a unique time in the history of the world, and that rest peacefully, facing the imposing view of the Caribbean Sea and the mouth of the Chagres River.

This is the tour that will immerse you in the most intimate part of Panama. The encounter with the friendly and kind Emberá will enrich your incredible experience even more.

Navigating the waters of the Chagres River, which is the main river that supplies the Panama Canal with the water necessary for the transit of ships, is one of the most incredible parts of the tour. The incredible skills of the Indigenous to navigate this river will amaze you.

In this tour nature will surprise you, but discover the incredible wealth, kindness and joy of the people who are part of this culture, is something that will shake your expectations and your way of seeing life. This is definitely a Tour that you can not miss if you visit Panama.

Je reviens du Panama avec mon ami et nous avons fait 3 excursions avec Rafael Tello et son agence Conozca Panama Primero Tours. Avec Rafael nous avons pu aller voir les indiens Emberas, experience magique pour moi. Je regrette de ne pas être resté dormir dans la communauté. Nous avons également fait les écluses Agua clara et Fort san lorenzo. Tout etait très bien organisé, Rafael et très chaleureux, il connait bien son pays, il donne beaucoup d'explications et il très content de le faire découvrir aux autres. De plus il parle espagnol en articulant bien pour qu'on le comprenne bien. Pour la 2° excursion nous étiens seuls avec lui et avons donc pris notre temps pour profiter de la journée. La 3° excursion était le tour dans les iles san blas très bien organisé mais Rafael n'etait pas avec nous. Les indiens guna nous ont pris en chrage à panama city. Partir avec Conozca Panama Primero Tours c'est l'assurance de ne pas se tromper !!! Regresé de Panamá con mi amigo e hicimos 3 excursiones con Rafael Tello y su agencia Conozca Panama Primero Tours. Con Rafael fuimos a ver a los indigenoos Emberas, una experiencia mágica para mí. Lamento no haberme quedado en la comunidad para dormir. También hicimos las esclusas Agua Clara y Fort San Lorenzo. Todo estuvo muy bien organizado, Rafael y muy agradable, conoce bien su país, da muchas explicaciones y está muy contento de hacerlo descubrir. Además habla español al paso para entenderlo bien. Para la segunda excursión estuvimos solos con él y nos tomamos nuestro tiempo para disfrutar el día. La tercera excursión fue el tour en las islas de San Blas muy bien organizado, pero Rafael no estaba con nosotros. Los indios guna nos recogieron en la ciudad de Panamá. ¡Ir con Conozca Panamá Primero Tours es la garantía de no equivocarse! Gracias a rafael por todo !
