Your day-by-day itinerary
Arrival in Panama City
On arrival in Panama City you will be greeted in the hall by a representative of our local partner. They’ll be carrying a sign with your name on it and transfer you directly to your comfortable, modern hotel in the Obarrio district (or you could upgrade to a colonial-style hotel in the heart of the old town, Casco Viejo). You’ll spend two nights here and get well acquainted with the Panamanian hospitality. This area can be a bit noisy at times but you’ll be in close proximity to bars and restaurants.
Guided Tour & Departure
After breakfast an English speaking guide will take you through the historic district of Casco Viejo. Walk between restored colonial buildings, churches, squares, monuments and museums; it’s a great way to learn more about life in Panama. Whilst you’re here, you won’t want to miss the ‘eighth wonder of the world’, the famous Panama Canal.
There was once a lake between the Pacific and Atlantic oceans but, with a height difference of 16.5 metres, this needed to be bridged so that the ships could sail from one ocean to the other. You can learn all about how and why the canal was built at the visitor’s museum. If you’re lucky, you might see one of the huge freight ships passing through.
After breakfast on day 3 this trip comes to an end and you can continue your adventure from here.
