Panama City - excursions and day trips

Whether you are in Panama City for business or pleasure, there is something for everyone to enjoy. You can take a day trip to one of the many islands in the Caribbean, a visit to the rainforest or a tour of the Panama Canal.

If you are looking for a tropical experience, Gamboa Island and Chagres National Park are perfect for you. Both are less than an hour's drive from Panama City and offer a variety of activities. Gamboa offers boat tours along the Gatun Lake and Chagres River. These excursions give you the chance to see wildlife and experience the indigenous culture of Panama. There are also a number of hiking trails that will take you through the forest. You can also explore the Embera Indian villages. These quaint villages are a stark contrast to the hustle and bustle of the city.

If you are interested in a multi-day tour, you can also consider visiting the Darien Gap. This multi-day excursion includes transportation and a knowledgeable insider guide. In addition, you can visit the Colon and Soberania rainforests. You can also take a cruise to Shell Island and experience the beauty of the sea. You can also take a dolphin sighting cruise and search for local pods of dolphins. You can also visit the frog farm and butterfly sanctuary, where you can view colorful butterflies.

There are also a number of day trips to nearby places, including Gamboa Rainforest and San Lorenzo Fort. These excursions offer an opportunity to see the lush rainforest, as well as the native communities. There are also a few museums to visit. You can also find a number of restaurants to dine at in the city. The Red Cat Catamaran tour departs from Panama City and includes drinks and a short break for a swim in the water. You can also take a private tour of the Panama Canal.

If you want to learn more about the history of the country, you can check out the Fuerte San Lorenzo. This fort was built in the 18th century and is an important piece of colonial history. You can also spend time bird watching while you are here.

You can also take a boat ride to Monkey Island and experience the wildlife of the rainforest. This is a popular excursion in Panama. You can also go hiking on the Camino de Plantacion trail, which is a beautiful walk. You can also explore the orchid garden, which is filled with blooms.

You can also go to Chagres National Park and experience the culture of the Embera people. This day trip includes a tour of the village and the waterfall, as well as a hike through the jungle. During this tour, you will also learn about the Embera people's culture and history. The Embera are an indigenous tribe in Panama. They are a small, culturally diverse group of people who earn their livelihood through selling handicrafts.

Another popular Panama City day trip is the Soberania National Park. This national park is located just outside of the city and offers several hiking trails that are open to the public. The park is open from 6 am to 4 pm. You can also view Central American wildlife such as hummingbirds at feeders.

Do I have to give my guide a tip?
No. It is not required and not expected of you to tip your guide. However, if one is presented, the guide might accept a gratuity. To guarantee that they are fairly compensated for their time, each guide sets the price of their tours. They do not depend on gratuities from tours as a result. If you want to support your guide, write a review of your tour.
What happens once I make a reservation?
After making the payment, you should wait at least 24 hours prior to the travel date for your Local Expert to confirm the requested date. If your reservation is approved, a confirmation email will be sent to your registered email address with the reservation's specifics and the Local Expert's direct contact information.
Is it possible to py in cash?
We have a policy that states that a reservation can only be verified after a legitimate payment has been made on our website. The process aids in preventing disputes that could occur while paying in cash in person. You can be confident that this money won't be given to the Local Expert right away. After your tour is over, Excursopedia will hold it and then provide it to the Local Guide.
How can I find out if a reservation has been confirmed?
When you finish making your online payment and the Local Guide accepts your booking request, your reservation will be finalized. You will receive a confirmation email. Don't worry; if the Local Guide does not confirm your booking after you provide your credit card information, the transaction will not be completed.
