Luis Calvo set up the trip for us. We criss-crossed the country, and other than in Panama City, we stayed in lovely up-and-coming little hotels and got a good immersion in local life all over the country. Sometimes he took us to wonderful, tiny little restaurants. At one of them there were two choices -- the proprietor said, "I have this fish, I make it with spicy green sauce. And I make that fish, its in a red sauce." We hiked down a dirt road and climbed through and over boulders to get to a spectacular waterfall and deep pool at its bottom for swimming. He took us to crafts markets where he products were just beautiful and the sellers were often selling what they had made. Bicycling with hundreds of local people on Sunday in Panama City when they close down the causeway was wonderful. The half day on the Panama Canal was spectacular. Luis was deeply knowledgeable, perfectly prompt, and accommodating if someone mentioned a new interest to try to fit into the itinerary. It was a customized itinerary for the four of us for one week. Luis was GREAT.
