Description of Panama tailor made holidays

This two week tailor made holiday itinerary allows travellers to explore one of Central America's proudest, and yet, least known countries: Panama.

What a delightful experience awaits. From indigenous animals, both on land and at sea, to cloud forests, Caribbean islands and colonial architecture in Panama City, this tour is all set to invigorate and excite your mind, body and your soul.

Feel the rhythm of Central America as you taste real home cooking with a local family; set sail to the Bocas del Toro islands and hear authentic tales of Caribbean piracy; stay with Kuna Indians on the islands of San Blas; whatever you do, don't discount Panama in favour of more popular alternatives.

From visits to the Panama Canal and a guided tour of Casco Viejo in the capital to exciting adventure activities around the highland town of Boquete, this tailor made two week holiday provides the perfect introduction to Panama's classic highlights as well as a few extra special hidden gems on the side.

Hello. If you'd like to chat about this holiday or need help finding one we're very happy to help. Rosy & team.

Environment

On this tour you will spend a couple of nights in the charming Finca el Guayabo, a local farmstay located near the town of Anton. As well as farmland, the accommodation has set aside a certain proportion of its land for wildlife, with mangrove forests providing a habitat for numerous species such as herons, parrots and raptors.

Meals are prepared using ingredients grown on the farm and in the kitchen garden, and the owners practice farming methods which are sensitive to the environment, minimising the use of any chemicals.

Community

This tour uses local guides and locally owned accommodation to ensure that as much money as possible is channelled back to the communities that you are travelling through.

Towards the end of this trip you will visit and stay in the San Blas Islands, an autonomous region for the Guna Yala Indians. The Guna Yala have their own laws and pay no taxes to the Panamanian government, living traditional lives where modernity has made few inroads. The Guna Yala follow fairly conservative customs and we ensure that all guests are dressed about appropriate behaviour here - for example immodest dress and excessive alcohol consumption is very much frowned upon and seen as an insult to the host community.

There is a fee payable for visiting these islands, which goes directly to the community and helps them to maintain their unique way of life without relying on external support, which could lead to their traditions becoming eroded. Similarly, any local excursions here are operated directly by the Guna Yala, who are this able to give visitors an insight into their customs.

On all of our trips we encourage our travellers to eat in local restaurants and for this reason most meals on this trip are left to the choice of the traveller rather than being included at the hotel, helping to ensure that the benefits are spread a little more evenly. Similarly we also encourage travellers to buy locally produced, rather than mass produced goods and give detailed guidelines in our pre-departure information about how to ensure they can travel as responsibly as possible.
