Day tourRoll in Panama: the Old Quarter and birdwatching in the city

Inside the city´s modern uproar, there is a calm place where exotic birds and animals can be seen in their native habitat. It’s the only natural park in Central America within the limits of a metropolitan city. It is also known as the lung of Panama. Then enjoy wandering a historical tour, in the second city known as the Old Quarter (Casco Antiguo), which was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. This tour includes stunning views from the modern city with its skyscrapers and international banking district. Moreover, surrounding Casco Antiguo, you will roll to local street art, crafts, food & coffee, vendors and everyday activities while heading to the coastal belt. A great occasion for an incredible photoshoot!

Day tourThe Rainforest, the aerial tram and birdwatching

Just away from the big city hustle, lies a completely unique rain forest. It offers amazing adventures through an aerial tram ride and bird watching is a must. The tram rises 267 feet to an observation tower offering fabulous views of the Chagres River, the Embera Indigenous community and most of the Soberanía National Park. In here, even the sloths are ready to welcome you! Then, we will visit the remains of the first European city founded in the Pacific sector throughout the Americas, which on August 15th, 2019 turned 500 years! A stop will be done overlooking the Panama Bay to see what shorebirds we can find.
