Une fabuleuse promenade en bateau sur le canal vous présentera les navires en transit ainsi que la faune et la flore abondantes sur ses berges. Vous participerez ensuite à une sortie en canoë sur les rives supérieures du Rio Chagres et visiterez le village indigène Embera de Parara Puru.
A tour with Jerin the owner is like having a knowledgeable friend take you around his hometown. A native of Missouri, he has lived in Panama for a number of years and his love of his adopted country is obvious. We took 2 day trips with him in a van along with 8 others. Along with his spotter, Willy, he found an amazing number of animals and plants for us to see and photograph. A number of times we would pull over when one of them spotted a sloth or other animal hidden away in the trees. Willy even captured a boa and allowed us to touch and hold it we then filmed it as it slithered back into a tree. On the monkey islands we fed small fruits to the capuchins Jerin explained that they needed supplemental food due to the size of their islands while showing us how to interact with them. Each wildlife find was accompanied by detailed explanations about the animal and its habits.
Jerin shared his deep knowledge of Panama, wildlife, the canal, as well as great tips for places to visit in the Casco Viejo neighborhood where we were staying. Good call on Nazca 21 and Pedro Mandinga's, Jerin!
In addition to the wildlife activities, we visited an old Spanish fort - San Lorenzo - and learned more Panamanian history as we shared a picnic lunch under the mangoes, including sandwiches, drinks, chairs and a parade of leaf cutter ants. Delightful!
My husband and I have travelled to many parts of the world and agree that Jerin is everything you could want in a guide and more. We couldn't recommend his company more highly.
My wife and I really enjoyed this tour. Great value for a day long tour about 8 hours. Native canoe ride into the Rainforest, swim at the waterfall, visit the native village, Monkeys in the wild on the boat on the Panama passage. Very reasoable prices for handcrafted art at the Native village prices in the city are about double or more. You really need rugged wet shoes for walking on the trail and in the stream to the waterfall flipflops are dangerous. Our tour guide was great. We highly recommend this tour. Lynn and Deborah Canada
Well it does what it says on the tin! Very relaxed, enjoyable, interesting and a perfect tour if you have limited time. How often can you cruise on the Panama canal, demonstrate that you are not as clever on a monkey, travel upstream to a traditional village in a jungle and finish it off with an ice cream on the house so to say in downtown Panama city? Well every day if you book this tour every day I suppose but you know what I mean. Highly recommended!
An outstanding experience. Off the beaten path. Up close and personal with nature and wild life. The canoe boat ride was definitely unique! Overall you need to have done reasonable level of fitness, stamina, balance. I would use this tour operator again!
Jarod and John were terrific hosts! Friendly, approachable and highly knowledgeable. We started on a boat on the Panama Canal, going by the ocean freighters headed to the Atlantic. The next several boat stops were to the monkey islands where we hand-fed capuchin and tamarind monkeys. They come right onto the boat and take large grapes right from your hand! Very cool! John told us the history of the canal and how the monkeys became stranded when the area was flooded and Gatun Lake was formed. From that perspective, the idea of those monkeys being dependent on human feeding is understandable - and good for them. Next we took a long ride to the Chagres River to meet the Embera Tribe, who took us to their village. They explained their way of life, danced for us, and fed us fried plantains and fish wrapped in banana leaves. We toured the village and shopped their handmade crafts. Last, a boat ride in the dugout canoe to an isolated spot on the Chagres River to relax a bit and enjoy the running water and jungle scenery. No one else on the river but us and the Canal inspectors continually watching the water levels 40 of the Canal water comes from this river. A long hot day, but THE highlight of our trip!
