The Bayano Caves are definitely a great adventure. Guide Alex picked me up on time and drove with us for 2 hours to lake Bayano. Once arrived at a small village we transferred on a boat which took us another 20 minutes across the lake to a remote place where we later had lunch in a beautiful setting. This place... More

We spent 7 days with Luis from Xplora. We went hiking to amazing waterfalls, tubing in Santa Fe, surfing at Santa Catalina, checking out nocturnal rainforest wildlife, biking through Panama City, and adventuring through a remote cave. The trip exceeded our expectations for fun with a 9 and 11 year old and Luis was fabulous with our family. He adjusted... More

The highlight of our recent trip to Panama was undoubtedly the day we spent birding with Alex and Xplora Tours. He picked us up at our Panama City hotel promptly before sunrise and immediately began sharing his wealth of bird and natural history information. The day was just wonderful! Alex is a true professional, very responsive to our likes and... More

I booked two trips with Xplora, the Cave Exploration Tour and the Caribbean Island Experience. I had a fantastic time on both trips - they were both better than I expected them to be, though my favorite has to be the cave. It was my first time doing any sort of caving, and the description sounded a bit daunting -... More

My family of 5 took two day trips with our guide Briant. Super friendly service from Esther to book at their office. I don't know where else you can get a tour guide that is a biologist. Briant is so knowledgeable about all the wildlife and plants. He personalized the trip, knowing my girls love frogs, and taught us so... More

We did the Lake Bayano Cave Exploration tour and it was our favorite tour during our trip! Our guide, Alex, was extremely knowledgeable and talked to us about everything from farming in Panama to local wildlife. The cave exploration was wonderful and unlike anything we'd done before. We were accompanied by a local who owns the land and he and... More
