Trip Report OAT Panama

Jump to last reply

I just returned from the Overseas Adventure Travel trip to Panama and wanted to give my 2 cents, since I found very little on this topic anywhere beyond OAT's website.

DH is NOT an adventurous person, so this was a good compromise for me to be able to go somewhere outside of the US and Europe with him. The last minute price of $1500.00 per person (excluding airfare) was great, plus the food in Panama is not spicy, there is a nonstop from LA, and I speak Spanish, so this was well within his comfort zone. An added bonus is that the hotels and restaurants in Panama are non smoking.

The OAT trip consisted of :
Panama City- 2 nights
Playa Coronado-2 nights
Gamboa Rainforest-2 nights
Panama Canal aboard the 12 cabin, 121 foot yacht Discovery-3 nights
Panama City-1 night

The trip was super. The Canal was wonderful. The Discovery is the only boat permitted to stay overnight in the Canal (we overnighted in Gatun Lake) and went, kayaking, exploring by Zodiac, etc. A true highlight. Trip director was excellent, a 30 year old with a huge interest in flora and fauna.

I'm happy to answer any particulars.
