We would like everyone to arrive before noon so we can get the most out of the first day. Today you will see multiple aspects of Panama and the city as we pass by Panama Viejo a historic site with history and ruins along the Pacific Ocean. Then we drive over the charming and colonial area Casco Viejo. The Spanish architecture, red brick roads, and historic feel will have you pulling out your cameras. Then we check into the hotel in the center of the city where you can relax, enjoy the pool, a cocktail and great company. Once the sunsets we will have orientation during your welcome dinner.
Day 2 - Cerro Ancón & Panama Canal (B, L)
Breakfast is served in the hotel and shortly after we will go for a short hike up Cerro Ancón for the most iconic panoramic view of the city and a chance to see some of the native birds and possibly even monkeys in their natural habitat. Once you have taken enough pictures we will pass by the Panama sign to take a few more followed by lunch at Amador where you will have views of the many yachts with the city as a backdrop. After a delicious lunch we visit the Miraflores Locks of the historical Panama Canal. We can either stay for a dinner at the Panama Canal watching ships pass through the locks (prices per plate $20+) or return to the hotel where you can adventure out for food of your choice.
Day 3 - Emberá Indigenous Culture Experience (B, S, D)
After an early breakfast we checkout at 8am and head up the Chagres River in a traditional wooden canoe deep into the indigenous community. Spend an afternoon with the Embera Tribe who are known for their rich lively colors and Shamanic dances and their temporary tattoos made from a fruit juice dye that lasts about 10 days. We will enjoy a hike to see the local waterfall to escape the humidity then arrive to the beach resort for dinner.
Day 4 – Relaxation at Playa Blanca Beach (All Inclusive)
Enjoy breakfast and your morning coffee while gazing into the Pacific Ocean from the white sandy beach. Today is a lazy day we we soak up the island life and forget about time.
Day 5 – Eco Lodge Experience (Optional*) (All Inclusive at Resort Only)
For those of you wanting to escape the sun and sand and head for higher ground there is a nearby eco lodge in the mountains about an hour away where you can hike to a local waterfall, play in the river or swim in the cool waters of the spring. This activity takes 4-5 hours so come prepared to purchase lunch or snack while there. We will return to the resort in time for dinner.
If you would rather stay at the resort and enjoy the beach, work on your tan, eat and drink all you can there is no problem. The optional eco lodge does have an additional fee which will be determined by the amount of people wanting to go.
