Trip Report Panama trip report

Jump to last reply

We were in Panama not long ago, while selecting the trip and preparing for our departure, we communicated frequently with Micaela, at Sendero Panama, both by telephone and e-mail. She was easy to reach, always returning our calls quickly if she didn’t actually answer the phone when we called.

Sendero Panama also sent out extensive documentation prior to the trip, with information on suggested packing lists, tipping suggestions, and so on.

They also helped us with some additional arrangements – we came down a day early, and stayed two days extra after the tour.

We stayed at the Canal House, was really nice, Casco Antiguo where is located was really beautiful, so much history.

While in tours with Sendero Panama we had a wonderful guide, very informative and helpful.

My husband Josh was very interested on the Panama Canal, we got our moneys worth and more.

While on boats and during numerous hikes in the forest and to Gatun lake we saw glorious flora and fauna. Spotted a few species of monkey, countless birds, including parrots, ants, tarantulas, snakes (the Fer de Lance), tapir, caimans, capabara and more.

Bocas del toro was incredible, weather was not so good, but the guide knew the area so well, poison arrow frogs, night monkeys and beautiful reef.

Not so crazy about the hotel in Bocas del Toro, Playa Tortuga, it felt to Disney to us, but it had comfortable beds and clean showers.

I would recommend Sendero Panama http://www.senderopanama.com to anyone traveling to Panama.
Their guides were sharp, helpful and very professional.
