Panama Tours

Small Group Panama Tours

Travelling to Panama feels like discovering a veritable Eden. This stunning country is a landscape of lush cloud forests, remote tropical islands, coffee plantations and miles of sun-drenched coastline. There’s a dazzling abundance of wildlife here too — enjoy diving with sea turtles and whale sharks, or trek into the jungle in search of two-toed sloths, howler monkeys and giant anteaters.

Beyond Panama’s natural charms, you’ll find a distinctly cosmopolitan vibe in Panama City, while rural regions are still populated by remote indigenous groups. Ready to start your adventure?

Frequently Asked Questions
Do you need a visa to travel to Panama?

Citizens of the US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, the UK and Ireland do not need a visa when travelling to Panama.

Is Panama safe?

While Panama has a reputation for being unsafe, the reality is that it’s much safer than the majority of Central American countries. It’s worth noting that crime is prevalent in certain areas of Panama City and rates of street crime are also high in the city of Colón.

When is the best time to visit Panama?

While Panama has a tropical climate, the weather ranges significantly depending on where you travel. While the lowlands are hot and humid, the highlands can be chilly (with variations based on the elevation) and nighttime temperatures can plummet.
Overall, the best time to visit Panama is during the dry season (late December to the end of April). During these months, the skies are clear and trekking is much easier compared to the rainy season, which takes place from May to December.

 

Name:
Andres Fernandez

EDUCATION:
Communication and Psychology.

LANGUAGE:
English, Spanish and French (after living in Belgium for 5 years).

TOURS LED:
Costa Rica, Panama, Colombia, Chile, Argentina, Cuba, Poland, the Baltic States, Portugal, Spain and Morocco.

FAVOURITE DESTINATION:
I love travelling in Central America. The natural history is astounding, all the birds, mammals, flora and fauna! As a certified diver and avid sportsman, the area offers many opportunities for diving, kayaking and rafting.

ABOUT:
Growing up in an international environment allowed me to interact with people from different cultures and learn from them. I would say that's when I became a traveler...

To me, traveling is not only about the sites and highlights of a destination, it's mostly about the people and their history, about how they solve things. It's about their lives!

Name:
Chris Tripodi

EDUCATION:
University for Mathematics. College for Music. But the greatest education I've received has come from Earth while travelling. "Don’t tell me how educated you are, tell me how much you have travelled."

LANGUAGE:
I can ask 'Where is the toilet?' in 57 languages.

COUNTRIES VISITED:
80%. I need a new passport every 20 months.

TOURS LED:
West Africa to South Africa, El Salvador to Argentina, Samoa to Seychelles, Portugal to Romania, Jordan to Japan.

FAVOURITE DESTINATION:
Departures hall.

ABOUT:
I travel because it is the most interesting thing I can think of doing between meals. The magic and the challenge of this job is seeing the world itself as the tour with several smaller journeys along the way. I enjoy that time at the end of one trip, before the start of a new one, where the sadness of leaving one place mixes with the excitement of approaching another.

Name:
COLETTE STUBBINGS

EDUCATION:
BFA in Visual Arts / Tourism and Business Management Diploma

COUNTRIES VISITED:
Just under 40 countries on six continents

FAVOURITE DESTINATION:
The beauty and remoteness of isolated, untouched nature make Mongolia and Iceland two of my favourite locations. To feel as small as humanly possible and swallowed by a dramatic landscape is one of the best feelings in the world. From the alien, multicoloured rhyolite mountains of Landmannalaugar in Iceland’s Highlands to painting-like orange/yellow pines that dot Terelj National Park in Mongolia during autumn - both are dear to my heart.

ABOUT:
Living a transitory lifestyle whenever I’ve had the means to do so has become a source of personal inspiration, mindfulness, growth and exchange. Convinced there is beauty in all things / people / places, I’m always anticipating the sights and sounds of any place I drift to next!

Name:
Sierra Searing

EDUCATION:
Bachelor of International Business with a Minor in Spanish. The degree also included spending a year studying abroad in Chile.

LANGUAGE:
English, Spanish, and some French & German.

COUNTRIES VISITED:
Sierra has travelled through 44 countries on 5 continents. She has hiked through jaw-dropping Iceland, slept in an old prison off the coast of Colombia, befriended a rescued kinkajou in the highland jungle of Panama, been stung by a jellyfish in Sri Lanka, feasted on the delectable street food of Georgetown, Malaysia, and camped alongside guanacos in Patagonia.

FAVOURITE DESTINATION:
This is Sierra's least favourite question. It is impossible to choose between the mystery and serenity of Peru, the spectacular wildlife sightings of South Africa, and the impossible construction of Meteora, Greece. She enjoys every destination in its own unique way and has yet to find a country she didn’t fall in love with.

ABOUT:
Sierra's dream in life is to explore every corner of the globe. When not travelling (and also while travelling), she loves the outdoors, wildlife, and photography and spends most weekends hiking, no matter the season or weather.
