Panama Guided Tours

Our trails are located within two national parks and give you a deep rainforest experience – river crossings, waterfalls, trails with mud and roots (no stairs, pavement or gravel).

Included in a one night’s stay is our daily 8:30am tour. The tour leaves from the hotel lobby promptly and departs by foot from the area of the cabañas around 9:00am. The choice of trail for the tour is based on the discretion of the participants. Tours can be arranged at other times for an additional fee.
