I took my family to visit my homeland, Panama. Kids were not too happy about being away for the 4th of July but nobody complained after we finished this adventure! We had a blast! Javier and Fabian are excellent guides, very knowledgeable on what they do, and our safety was

Thank you very much for your Excellent Review on our Chagres Challenge. It surely was particularly challenging on July 4th due to current river water level being so low. But you guys did it, Congratulations !

The caves are worth a visit and I can recommend the trip. However keep this in mind: - The balance can be improved. You spend two hours in the cave and the rest of the day consists of driving from and to the city, the boat ride and a local lunch (not really a lunch with locals

Thank you very much for your review on our Bayano Canyoning Your observations are well taken; but them, it all depend on each particular expectations. It is a long trip by road and boat to get there and we are barely avoiding afternoon city traffic jam as it is. Lunch is usually cooked by locals as we try to get then involved; but they are not always available. And yes, I recommed avoiding this destination on weekends to avoid crowds. Thanks again for your review and opportunity to service you.

The Kayaking on Lake Gatun was beautiful, relaxing and seeing the big ships go by was really cool. We saw about 5 monkeys a bird and a butterfly (these were the only wildlife our guide pointed out.) Our guide was very knowledgeable about Panama & the Canal history but seemed to

Thank you very much for your terrible review on this trip, Panama Canal Kayaking. I was warned by you about it, and I was prepared for it. I do not take blackmails, PERIOD. I am just surprised that tripadvisor.com keeps publishing us fabricated reviews. And this time they were even warned about it. Yes, tripadvisor is forcing me to answer it by having it published; but, this review is just that, a fabricated review of someone that menace me with anticipation for a refund (one third of money paid) based on a nonsense claim, in exchange for not hurting our reputation by publishing a fabricated review. I had refunded persons before. We do mistakes. But this is not the case at all. You purchased our Panama Canal Kayaking, a kayak trip which focused on nature observation on Gatun Lake right in the middle of the Panama Canal. It is described in detail in our web. While at it, you decided to cut it short requesting a visit to the Panama Canal Locks, a destination not included anywhere in trip description. Then, in our way back to Panama City, when we where by the locks area you decided not to pay entrances fees required to enter its visitor center because you imagine that it was included or it was less. There is a difference between verbs "to see" and "to visit". Usually to visit has a cost associated with it. A cost that it is not included in our trip because its description does not includes it. You are not the first party that request a visit to the locks in our way back from the kayaking trip. You do are the first person that assume it was included. "He told me we'd kayak right by them..." Be serious !!! I interviewed my team when they returned back from your trip, and they were all convinced that we had serviced another happy customers. I never expected to receive your demands days later. But well, such is life. I am not loosing more time on your fabricated review except to comment that it is poor fiction, based on a frustrated purpose, not in facts.

I need to give a big thank you to Javier (Manager) that I could still do this trip even though a group of 3 other people cancelled last minute (problem with their flight) - so I was the only guest on this day for this tour. It was an amazing trip with excellent guides and very

I am very glad that you enjoyed it our Chagres Challenge. Too bad that you did not had a chance to see the only otter that our guides spotted during the trip (-: The one in the picture was taken by an Embera Village that had made a pet out out of it. It is a very elusive animal; but still, it is the Chagres National Park choosen animal use to represent it.
