Day 1

Panama City

Welcome to Panama!
Today at the appropriate time a representative will meet you at the Tocumen International
Airport to assist and transfer you to your hotel located in Panama City. Upon your arrival to your hotel please check in.


Day 2-4

San Blas

Your driver will meet you early in the morning to transfer you to the San Blas region. After driving through the scenic forest, you will arrive at the coast where you will meet your water taxi who will transport you to your sailboat. Meet your captain and crew and get settled into your cabin as you set sail for paradise.

Located along the Caribbean coast: the 365 islands of this archipelago are a real postcard scenery of white sand beaches, coconuts trees and turquoise waters.  Established in 1938 as an autonomous Indian territory, the region of Guna Yala, with its simple beauty, its generous people and its exceptional primary forests, offers a great vacation opportunity away from massive tourism. Immerse yourself in the traditional life of the Guna Indians as you revert to a simpler time.

Your route is determined by the captain based on weather and how much time you have available. Meals are, if possible, prepared with the catch of the day (variety of fish) or with lobsters or giant crabs (in season).


Day 5


At the appropriate time you will be picked up by your driver for your 45-minute flight to David located
in the Chiriquí Province.  Upon arrival you will be transferred to your hotel in the charming highland-village of Boquete.

You can spend the afternoon exploring the town of Boquete which has a large ex-pat community so offers a mix of cultures.


Day 6-7

Volcan Baru

Early in the morning we will have a 20 minutes transfer by car to the ranger station of the “Parque Nacional Volcan Baru” where we will register the names and passports of the participants at the entrance. Make sure your backpacks are full of food, water, extra clothes and most importantly your body full of energy since we will also have to carry our tents and sleeping bags.
We will walk from 4 to 7 hours, depending on the physical condition of each participant, until we get to our campsite where we will prepare our tents, have some dinner and get some rest.

The following day, we will begin the last part of our journey by hiking up the last kilometer and a half to the top. Once you arrive take in the view of the sun starting to rise and the sky slowly changing from black to blue, if you are in luck you will be able to see the Pacific and Atlantic Ocean. We will go back to the campsite to dismantle the tents and prepare our backpacks to head back to Boquete. Upon arrival to your hotel in Boquete take the time to relax and let your body recuperate after the hike.


Day 8


A morning at leisure to enjoy optional activities in Boquete area. Tours to choose from include a Skywalk to view the rainforest, whitewater rafting, coffee tour, hot springs or hiking to try spot the elusive Quetzal bird. Or you can choose to relax at the hotel after your strenuous hike.

In the afternoon you will be transferred to the airport to catch your afternoon flight to Panama City where you will be transported to your hotel in Casco Viejo district.

Casco Viejo is a unique walled city, consisting of 16th & 17th Century Spanish Colonial Architecture. This area was unknown to most of the outside world until 1997 when UNESCO named Casco Viejo a World Heritage Site. Shortly there after, investments and foreign expats started to poor into Casco Viejo (at that time a deteriorating slum which most Panamanians wouldn’t dare visit) in what has been one of the greatest and fastest urban revitalizations in all of the Americas.

Today, Casco Viejo (aka. Casco Antiguo, San Felipe or El Casco) is a vibrant community consisting of a sharp contrast of old and new, local and foreign. The buildings are in various stages or redevelopment and renovation, with a strictly enforced standard of Historical Authenticity. There is tremendous culture and a feeling which is unique only to this neighborhood in Panama. There are restaurants (some of the best in the city in fact), cafes, boutiques, shops, beautiful buildings surrounding the plazas and immaculately manicured gardens. As you stroll through the old streets from one plaza to the next, you’ll meet vendors selling everything from Empenadas and Enchilladas to flavored shaved ice called “raspao”.

Essentially, Casco Viejo is a melting pot of many cultures converging in one place which is truly unlike any other.


Day 9

Panama Canal

Early in the morning a driver will meet you and transfer you to Causeway to begin your Partial
Transit of the Panama Canal. Admire the Bay of Panama and Panama City´s splendorous skyline and the Bridge of the Americas during the Panama Canal Partial Transit. You will transit the Miraflores Locks where the vessel will ascend 54 feet in two distinct steps. Then enter Miraflores Lake, which is a small artificial body of fresh water that separates Pedro Miguel from Miraflores Locks. Next, the vessel will enter Pedro Miguel Locks, which is one of the two sets of locks on the Pacific side, and here the vessel will be raised the last 27 feet to get into the Gatun Lake.
Shortly after you will go under the Centennial Bridge, making your way to the Gatun Lake, which was formed by erecting the Gatun Dam across the Chagres River. After reaching the Gamboa Dredging Division a driver will be waiting for you to transfer you back to your hotel.
