History and Delicacies

Do you want to experience the Colonial side of Panama City? There’s no better way than this tour of the Historic Quarter. You’ll learn the history of the second Panama City, founded in the 17th century, and you’ll savor the best local coffee, chocolate, and artisan beer—as well as the ever-popular ceviche— along the Coastal Beltway. The tour takes between six and eight hours and includes snacks and lunch.

Up in the Mountains

The refreshing climate and spectacular panoramic views make El Valle —a town 1.5 hours from Panama City and nearly 3,300 feet above sea level— an ideal spot to enjoy a hike through the woods and a dip in the hot springs. The tour includes a visit to the El Níspero Botanic Garden, where you can admire local flora and fauna; lunch; and a stop at the Handicrafts Market.
