After breakfast, we will be driven to the Gulf of Chiriquí. Chiquirí Gulf is one of Panama's best-kept secrets and a fundamental part of the National Marine Park.

The perfect destination for snorkelling and other water sports.
Today is another free day in paradise. 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 once raided the Spanish galleons.
Today is the final day of this incredible luxury tour. After breakfast, we will head back to the airport in David for our flight to Panama City, for your international flight back home or on to your next exciting destination!
