Your Included Excursions

Two Sides of San Felipe Town (4 hours)

Your Included Excursions
San Felipe, the Colonial Quarter of Panama City, historically has offered two faces of the same coin: 1. The Wealthy Spanish Quarter, where even the Church and Cathedral Altars where covered with gold  2. “Los Arrabales”, where Africans and Indigenous people lived together, creating a mixed atmosphere of rhythms, flavors, and races. Where happiness was shown by every dance expression made by the rhythm of drums, cans, pans, bottles, whistles, and by the laughter heard when somebody had beaten their opponent while playing domino in “El Parque de Los Aburridos”.

You will first visit the tourist area of San Felipe, Casco Antiguo. Walk around the streets visiting El Altar de Oro of San Jose Church, El Arco Chato, Las Bovedas and other monuments in the area. Then, we will join a tour directed by ex – Gangsters, rehabilitated as an opportunity to start a business in a community that few years ago was declared “Red Zone” by the authority. Visit several points, beginning with the American Trade Hotel, a property before overrun by criminals who is now 5 stars hotel in Panama City. During the tour, these ex-gangsters tell their stories as we go along streets. After finishing the tour, enjoy a delicious dinner prepared by them. 

Your Optional Excursions

Miraflores Tour (2.5 hours)

Your Optional Excursions
The Panama Canal is known as the 8th Wonder of the World. It is approximately 80 kilometers long between the Atlantic and Pacific Ocean. During our visit to this engineering marvel, we will get the chance to see the Canal gates of Miraflores Locks. The locks function as water lifts: they raise ships from sea level (the Pacific or the Atlantic) to the level of Gatun Lake (26 meters above sea level); ships then sail the channel through the Continental Divide.

Miraflores Visitors Center (MVC) as their new expression of the permanent commitment of the Panama Canal Authority to strengthen the public’s knowledge of the Canal. The exhibitions include historical objects of Canal operations, interactive modules, video presentations, and models of the Panama Canal.  Four exhibition halls, organized by themes, constitute the heart of the MVC. The following is a brief description of each exhibition hall:

Exhibition Hall 1: Canal History.
Exhibition Hall 2: Water: Source of Life
Exhibition Hall 3: The Canal in Action
Exhibition Hall 4: The Canal of the World Duration

San Blas (Guna Yala) - Beach Day

Your Optional Excursions
On this fabulous day, you will enjoy the crystal clear waters of San Blas. We leave at approximately 5:00 am in 4x4 cars, and we will travel around 2 hours approx. Until arriving at the port of Carti in San Blas. We will take a motorized boat for about 20 minutes that will take us to Isla Aguja, where we can enjoy the Caribbean Sea. Then we will take a walk through the Natural Pool. You can also have fun and relax.

Includes: Transport, Breakfast, Lunch with drinks, VIsit to 2 islands and natural pool, Visit to the Indigenous Community, Islands and port taxed, Tour in English

Panama Partial Transit

Your Optional Excursions
Our tour starts at the Flamenco Resort and Marina. Passengers board motor coaches for a 45-minute ride to the town of Gamboa where the Panama Canal Dredging Division is located. Once in Gamboa, passengers board the Boat to start the water portion of the tour.

We enter the canal at the north end of the Gaillard Cut, where the Chagres River flows into the canal. The Gaillard Cut (also known as Culebra Cut because its curves resemble a snake) is one of the main points of interest for visitors because it was carved through the Continental Divide and this section of the Canal is full of history and geological value. The vessel will travel the Cut's 13.7 kilometres on the way to Pedro Miguel Locks. 

Before reaching the Pedro Miguel Locks at the southern end of the Cut, you will be able to view the new Centennial Bridge which crosses over the Canal. Next, we will enter Pedro Miguel Locks, which is one of the two sets of locks on the Pacific side, and here the vessel is lowered 9 meters in one step. 

You will then enter Miraflores Lake, which is a small artificial body of fresh water that separates Pedro Miguel from Miraflores Locks, the latter being the final set of locks before reaching the Pacific Ocean. At Miraflores Locks, the vessel is lowered 18 meters in two distinct steps. Once in the Pacific Ocean, the vessel will sail to the beautiful Flamenco Marina where passengers disembark. On the way to Flamenco, you will pass under the Bridge of the Americas, and later, you will be able to admire the Bay of Panama and Panama City's splendorous skyline. The whole experience could take from 6 to 8 hours (according to the Panama Canal Authority’s decision), depending on the traffic and the itinerary for that day.

Any person from 11 to 65 years old, in good health
Any open water certified diver
