      The tour starts at the Gamboa Rainforest Resort, where a guide will take you on a boat tour through the Panama Canal into secret waterways to find hidden islands where the Capuchin and Howler Monkeys can be seen leaping in the trees above. We will pass through lush green rainforest and hopefully spot these inhabitants as well as butterflies, herons and turtles.

        Today, we will head to the domestic airport for a flight to David. On arrival, we will be taken to the small mountain town of Boquete. Hiking the area is spectacular and is the launching spot to climb the Baru volcano or hike The Quetzal Trail. If we are lucky, we could actually see the national bird in its natural habitat. If you prefer a more "cultural" activity, you can visit a coffee plantation, or if you are looking for an adrenalin-filled adventure, there are rafting trips abound on the Chiriqui Viejo River. 

          Today we will enjoy one of Boquete's best exports – its coffee!  Boquete’s weather is the reason that the coffee in this region is as incredible as it is. The fertile soil, the precise altitude combine to provide one of the world's best coffees. We will visit the  La Milagrosa Farm, where one of the country’s best biological coffees is produced. We will then walk through the plantations to see the different coffee plant varieties, including the prestigious ...

              After breakfast, the guide from the Cala Mia Hotel Boutique Hotel will collect you for the journey to Boca Chica, to take the boat to the Boca Brava Island. The hotel overlooks the Gulf of Chiriquí National Marine Park and their private pier is perfect for the islands' excursions. The national park covers 150 km2 of transparent ocean, with 20 stunning islands of lush tropical rainforest and many palm tree-lined white sandy beaches. The islands are a treasure of water and nature, where pirates raided the Spanish galleons.

                Today is a free day for any of the optional excursions or to relax and enjoy this beachside paradise.  

                  Early in the morning, we will head back to the David Airport for your flight to Panama City. On arrival, we will head out for a tour of the old town, where the original settlers arrived. The city was founded on the 15 of August 1519, by Pedrarias Davila. The city of Panama was the central distribution point of the Spanish to transport all the gold and silver from America to Spain.  Its ruins were declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2003. This is where the tour finishes and we wil...
