Most of the trip was spent driving to and from the lake. Then 30mins by boat to the caves. The caves were really neat. Afterwards we came back to a hut where locals had lunch ready. But the guides didnt talk to us while we were there, so probably for an hour they were talking to the locals in Spanish.... More

After a 90-minute drive from Panama City (though poor neighborhoods and very bumpy, and sometime unpaved, roads), we arrived at the canoes to take us on the river to waterfalls. We did not see the "Natural Bridge" as described on the website. After a hike through the forest (make sure you wear water shoes or any shoes you don't mind... More

Thank you very much for your Very Good feedback in our Embera Village Trip. Certainly our trip description did not described very well what we offered you and I appreciated your open mind and adventure spirit. We certainly delivered a similar quality experience which was more suitable for current season. Looking forward to service you in a near future More

We did a partial Panama Canal transit with Adventures Panama in December 2015 and everything ran perfectly. We thoroughly enjoyed going through the locks and just being at this amazing place. Adventures Panama did a great job picking us up and dropping us off etc. Would highly recommend this tour company.

Thank you very much for your Excellent Review on The Panama Canal Partial Transit. The Panama Canal is amazing and definitely should be in everyones bucket list. However, not everyone knows that there are different options. There are day trips, short visits, or full several day expeditions. You can book into a scheduled partial or full transit. Or you can...

The day starts early but that's okay. You get to wind your way up a jungle mountain while the sun comes up. The sunrise is stunning and you get great views of Panama City along the way. At the top of the mountain you get to eat, then it's off into the jungle for a lovely hike through some stunning... More

My wife and I did the Chagres Challenge, which was undoubtedly the best part of our Panama trip (you were right Javier)! The first unexpected adventure is the trip to the starting point. The truck ride gave us an amazing view of the area, and the roads navigated gave me a new respect for Toyota Land Cruisers and the truck... More

Aventuras Panama arranged our airport/hotel/cruise transfers and everyone was prompt and courteous. We did a private bird watching tour and Mario was very knowledgeable and went out of his way to make sure we saw as much as we could in the time we had. Added at least 30 new birds as well as maybe a dozen hummingbirds. Along with... More

I am an outfitter and have seen many short term so called river companies in different companies. Adventuras Panama, has high quality equipment, experienced and competant guides and an amazing itinerary of places to raft, kayak and multi-sport. They are also a travel agent and can book your whole vacation. I highly recommend.

Thank you very much for your Excellent review on our services. I am glad that you mentioned. Not many persons are aware that we can take care of their full vacation, from transfers and lodging to activities and usually much cheaper that if they procure things separately. More

Did a very fun 5-day/4-night sea kayaking and snorkeling trip with Aventuras Panama. We camped at a beautiful and very small island in the Cayos Holandesas, an hour-and-a-half motor boat ride from the main port, and barely saw anyone else all week. I had no more than 20 minutes of kayaking experience before going, so while you don't need to... More
