On this active Panama eco-adventure discover the rich natural and cultural history of this land bridge between continents and seas. Expert naturalist Panama guides lead hikes and easy kayaking through a range of tropical ecosystems teaming with wildlife. In jungle lowlands outside Panama City explore Las Cruces Trail, a route created 400 years ago to transport riches across the isthmus for ships headed to Spain. Navigate in a jungle boat around the rainforest islands in the Panama Canal, and walk the Pipeline Road trail where scientists study the rain forest and birdwatchers set world records for counts. We hike some of the most scenic trails in Panama through lush cloud forests amongst the volcanoes of the Chiriqui Highlands in search of one of the most beautiful birds in the world: the resplendent quetzal. Here we learn about Panama’s shade grown coffee at the Janson Family coffee farm, and then conclude our Panama adventure on a palm-lined white sand beach on the Pacific where you can swim, surf, kayak, dolphin and whale watch, or just relax and contemplate the tropical beauty. This Panama tour is ideal for active multi-generational families, couples and any adventurous traveler seeking fun and discovery in Central America.
