I would highly recommend the Chagres rafting trip to anyone looking for an adventure and to experience the natural beauty Panama has to offer. Rafting the Chagres you are surrounded by rain forest like the images you see in National Geographic guided by knowledgable guides. In the Embera village you witness the lives and culture of people who live connected... More

We loved seeing the pristine jungle and being the only ones out there all day. The night spent at the Embera village was an enriching experience as well. We loved the fresh fish... More

I did a great canyoning trip in December 2016, guides were super friendly, helpful, they pick me up on time. I learn a lot about Panama and Lake Bayano, we enter the caves and we so a lot of animals in the wild.

The 4x4, hike, raft and dug out canoe to the Embera village (Chagres challenge) was fantastic! The river is gorgeous and the guides were experts! The price is very reasonable given how many people it takes to put on the expedition. We felt like family at the village. The Embera people are so genuine and open. We only wished we... More

We took the Changres River challenge with a 2.5h hike through the rainforest followed by 5h white water rafting. The guides were great and our group was wonderful. My friend and I had never gone white water rafting before, and did not find the course difficult. Definitely recommend on your trip to Panama!
