What better way to learn about the world than to travel it. And vacationing with your family should be a great experience! Our Panama Family Adventures are designed with children in mind, interweaving encounters with nature, adventure, diverse culture, rich history, and a lot of fun for the whole family.

Day 1
Arrival to Panama

Upon arrival to Panama the group will be met in the Tocumen International airport by an Isthmian Adventures representative and escorted to your accommodations in Panama City

Day 2
Masters of the River, the Embera People

This is a perfect opportunity to visit an indigenous village in the midst of a wonderful natural setting that supports the harmony of their lifestyle and traditions.  A river dwelling population requires dugout canoes to access their community. At the Emberá village we will be greeted with dancing and music. We will learn about Emberá customs and their relationship with nature. After a lunch of fish, plantain, and fresh fruit served in traditional style we say hasta luego to our new friends and head back to Panama.

Meals Included: B, L, D.

Day 3
The Wild Side of the Panama Canal

This day combines the thrill of encountering wildlife in their natural habitats while passing in the shadows of the mammoth cargo ships transiting the Panama Canal.  Gatun Lake, with a surface area of 423 square-kilometers, was created in 1914 as the main waterway for the canal and contains many small islands (former hilltops) that provide protected natural habitats for many of the animals that live in the region. 

From the comfort of our expedition boat which allows shoreline access to the rainforest covered islands we will search for white-faced capuchin, mantled howler monkey, Central American spider monkey, and Geoffrey’s tamarin. We are likely to spot green iguana and three-toed sloth resting on tree branches, crocodile napping on beaches, osprey hunting for peacock bass, snail kite, and keel-billed toucan. At mid-day, we will visit Miraflores Locks and enjoy lunch with an exclusive terrace view of the massive vessels transiting the locks.  This afternoon we make the short flight to the archipelago of Bocas del Toro.

Meals Included: B, L, D.

Day 4 
Bastimentos National Park

Today we explore both the terrestrial and under water wonders of Bastimentos National Park.  First we visit Salt Creek, Ngobe indigenous community, where we’ll be greeted by our local guide, who will lead us through a nature trail where we have the opportunity to see sloths, monkeys, including the elusive Western night monkey, birds, Caymans, and the famous red strawberry frog, a poison dart frog that lives on the island.  Lunch will be enjoyed at a restaurant by the sea, built on stilts out over the water.  In the afternoon we will snorkel the Caribbean coral reefs, teaming with brilliantly colored fishes and sponges. 

Meals Included: B, L, D

Day 5
Surfing, Finca Monos Botanical Gardens, & Return to Panama City
When it comes to great surfing, Bocas del Toro is a world class destination. Due to its wide range of easily accessible and great surfing spots for all levels of experience, Bocas del Toro is a carefully guarded secret. Our professional surf instructors will begin by teaching the theory of surfing and sharing the characteristics of our surf site so we feel comfortable. Afterwards we will go over paddling techniques and hopping up on the board. Finally, we will board our boat and head to our surf site for approximately 2 hours of time in the water. At lunchtime, we return to town for a VERY well-deserved lunch and break at Finca Monos Botanical Gardens. Here, guests can shower, change, and enjoy a home cooked meal. After lunch, our host will guide us through an amazing botanical garden situated on 20 acres of tropical paradise.  Or, chill at the pool watching the howler monkeys play overhead.  In the evening we will take the short flight back to Panama City.
Meals Included: B, L, D.
