Day 1: Welcome to Casco Antiguo and the Central Hotel!

The oldest section of Panama City known as Casco Viejo (Old Town) was founded in 1673 just two years after the original Panama City was torched during an invasion by the infamous Pirate Henry Morgan. It is only about 5 miles from the ruins of Panama la Vieja but is a world apart. Nestled in the heart of Casco Viejo is the Central Hotel which was built nearly 150 years ago. It faces the beautiful Plaza de la Independencia and was the first hotel in Panama at the time of its opening in 1874. It quickly became a meeting place for intrepid travelers and its clientele has included the French builders who constructed the Panama Canal, U.S. President Theodore Roosevelt and Count Ferdinand de Lesseps.

Day 8: Private Guided Tours

Morning Private Guided Pipeline Nature Hike and Secret Waterfalls Tour

This level 2 hike is perfect for those looking for an easy yet beautiful hike which last for about 1.5 hrs. each way (3hr total). This is an ideal location for spotting many different species of birds and even the Resplendent Quetzal. The Pipeline Trail gently winds through dense cloud forest, passing over small walking bridges and passing by ancient trees. Wildlife abounds on this scenic hike and the trail terminates at a nearly 200ft tall waterfall.

Afternoon Private Boquete Honey, Bees, Butterflies and Nature Tour

During this tour, you will develop a new and different perspective on nature and the importance of bees in the lives of human beings. You will enjoy a typical Boquete Coffee Estate, complete with beautiful gardens and a huge variety of plants grown for us, the butterflies and the bees. Our honey is, we think, unique in the world. No where else that we know of produces 40 or so different flavor profiles of natural honeys (ie nothing added). It is possible because of the huge biodiversity around Volcan Baru. The tastings are a memorable experience.

The coffee farm is also unique in that we plant as in a garden tending to plants individually and not treating with any chemicals that can be harmful to bees and butterflies.
