dmac Posted April 15, 2005 #1 Share Posted April 15, 2005 We are just off the Carnival Legend 4/4/05 sailing. For our stop in Panama we arranged a tour with Mario through his website, myfriendmario.com. We chose his tour # CL007. Excellent tour. The highlight was the trip to the waterfall. You hike for about 20-30 minutes back into the rainforest following a streambed and you come to a beautiful swimming hole with a decent sized waterfall flowing into it. We were the only ones there at the time. Absolute paradise. The water feels great after the hike. The hike is not difficult, but there is some uphill and downhill on slippery, muddy terrain. Also the canoe ride on the Chagres river to and from the Indian Village is very nice. We saw quite a few caiman and many birds. Enjoyed this ride much more than the jungle canal ride we took in Costa Rica. You need to plan a tour in Panama as Colon is not a great place to shop or hang out. But once you are out of Colon, it is a whole different world. Our experience with Mario from myfriendmario.com was very positive and I would recommend his services if you are going to Panama. He also does tours out of Panama City. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
