Thank you very much for your Excellent Review in our Whale Watching Trip. I took part in it to make a video of the experience, and the part that it most excited me was the expressions "Haaaa" and "Whao" that those beautiful mammals took out of everyone onboard. Amazing spectacle ! I hope to see you again in any of... More

The 4x4, hike, raft and dug out canoe to the Embera village (Chagres challenge) was fantastic! The river is gorgeous and the guides were experts! The price is very reasonable given how many people it takes to put on the expedition. We felt like family at the village. The Embera people are so genuine and open. We only wished we... More

Indeed a challenge as the logistics are amazing on this one day trip: 4wd then hiking next to horses carrying the rafts then rafting then boating with those long river boats from embera Indians to finally make it back by car to Panama. All well organized with friendly and proficient guides. Only possible thing to improve would have been to... More

Thank you very much for your "Very Good" review on our Chagres Challenge. Yes, we do have duckies (inflatable kayaks), and we used to offer them as an option; BUT, and big BUT here is that you noticed that you paddled close to 5 hours. And very very few people can keep up paddling 5 hours. They usually fall behind... More

We took the Changres River challenge with a 2.5h hike through the rainforest followed by 5h white water rafting. The guides were great and our group was wonderful. My friend and I had never gone white water rafting before, and did not find the course difficult. Definitely recommend on your trip to Panama!

AN AMAZING OVERALL TRIP. Lots more than just rafting. 2 hr drive in a 4x4 'van' w spectacular views. 2-3 hr challenging hike - very beautiful unadulterated nature views but very slippery and steep terrain. (make sure you wear good hiking shoes & bug repellent) 4-5 hr rafting on grade 3 rapids - perfect for a beginner group (2 adults,... More

We took a kayak tour down the Chagres River, covering approximately 17 km and finishing in the Atlantic Ocean. Following the kayak, we were driven to old Spanish fort where lunch was prepared whilst we took the the phenomenal view of the region. Highly recommended.

Had an amazing time with Adventures Panama doing the Embera Tour. First did a little amazing hike through the tropical rainforest at the Chagres River until we arrived at a waterfall, where we could dive into the cool and fresh water. After this we visited the Embera village, where we learned more about the lifestyle and culture of the indigenous... More

We went to the Embera community deep in the rainforest outside Panama City. It was beautiful! I would defenitely recommend everyone to go during the "rainy" season as there was no rain, there were no other tourists and the vegetation was incredibly lush and green! The scenic boat trip in the authentic indian canoe through the jungle was a true... More
