Days 2-3 San Gerardo de Dota

Scan the lush forest foliage for Costa Rica's much-celebrated birdlife; toucans, kingfishers and the resplendent quetzal all nest in the woods of San Gerardo de Dota. Why not finish the day with some fly fishing from the banks of the Savegre River.

Days 6-7 Boquete

Cross into the pristine natural beauty of Panama's rolling highlands. In addition to offering some spectacular hiking trails and river rafting opportunities, the region if famous for its coffee. Nestling back with a steaming pot and good book can be an equally pleasant way to lounge away the day.

Day 8 El Valle de Anton

Set in the crater of a (thankfully) now-extinct volcano, the town of Valle de Antón makes for a delightful overnight stopover en route to Panama City. Hiking trails snake the lushly forested mountainsides, natural hot springs offer opportunities for a relaxing soak and folky craft markets pop up come weekend.

Days 9-10 Panama City

Brash and glitzy one minute, subdued and simple the next, Panama City is an intriguing capital of extremes. Get your bearings on a guided orientation tour and take in Panama Canal, one of humankind's most astounding engineering accomplishments. Fine dining options abound, so why not rally the group for a memorable final dinner.
