Highlights
  • Stare out into the crystal-blue caribbean waters in bocas del toro
  • Take in the crisp air of the lush green highlands in boquete
  • Explore the panama canal

Panama has been a destination on the cusp of the mainstream for ages, but somehow still remains a secret. More greatness for us to enjoy, we say. This eight-day trip opens the lid on the natural splendour of this overlooked gem of a country, giving travellers the chance to hike cloud forests, snorkel the Caribbean and even discover where that delicious morning cup of joe comes from at a coffee plantation. Panama is spectacular, and the best way to promote it is by word-of-mouth. Tell your friends!

I wanted to travel a different country but I didn't want to do this alone. This was also educational to learn about a different country without the stress of where to be or best spots and language barriers. Felt safe throughout the trip. Awesome! May 2015

this is definitely the way to go for a single person or couple to travel and see countries in a safe matter. To get off the grid, sort of, and take in the culture, meet new people, and relax without the stress. seeing the city or towns we come across planned or unplanned is great. I will do this again for sure next year!

I enjoyed the adventure because of the people we met, the non all inclusive environment, and the landscapes and culture as we travelled. April 2015

G adventures is a great way to travel. The head ache of arranging transportation and accommodations is taken care of. You are left with the decisions of where to eat and what will you do today in great environments. I could set my own pace. Did I want to do a strenuous hike, or read a book?

The Panama experience classic trip was new to me. At times I feel like the pace was too slow and that I wanted to fit much more in. I would tweek the itinerary a bit but other than that I am very satisfied. Our CEO was really great and indulged all 16 of us as much as possible.

Solo Notes

We believe single travellers should not have to pay more to travel so our group trips are designed for shared accommodation and do not involve a single supplement. Single travellers joining group trips are paired in twin or multi-share accommodation with someone of the same sex for the duration of the trip. Some of our Independent trips are designed differently and single travellers on these itineraries must pay the single trip price.

Age Notes

Min. Age: You must be 18 to travel unaccompanied on a G Adventures tour. For minors travelling with a guardian over 21 years old, the minimum age is 12.

Physical Requirements Our small group adventures bring together people of all ages. It is very important you are aware that, as a minimum, an average level of fitness and mobility' is required to undertake our easiest programs. Travellers must be able to walk without the aid of another person, climb 3-4 flights of stairs, step on and off small boats, and carry their own luggage at a minimum. Travellers with a pre-existing medical condition are required to complete a short medical questionnaire, which must be signed by their physician. This is to ensure that travellers have the necessary fitness and mobility to comfortably complete their chosen trip. While our CEOs work hard to ensure that all our travellers are catered for equally, it is not their responsibility to help individuals who cannot complete the day's activities unaided. Please refer to the physical ratings in this Trip Details document for more information. The medical questionnaire can be found online at: www.gadventures.com/medical-form.
Rules & Other Requirements Illegal drugs will not be tolerated on any trips. Possessing or using drugs not only contravenes the laws of the land but also puts the rest of the group at risk. Smoking marijuana and opium is a part of local culture in some parts of the world but is not acceptable for our travellers. Our philosophy of travel is one of respect towards everyone we encounter, and in particular the local people who make the world the special place it is. The exploitation of prostitutes is completely contrary to this philosophy. Our CEOs have the right to expel any member of the group if drugs are found in their possession or if they use prostitutes.
