Panama Tours & Holidays

Home to one of the world's most exceptional modern engineering marvels, Panama invokes historic nostalgia.

Yet there's more to this nation in Central America than the mighty Panama Canal, and travellers lucky enough to end up in Panama will be delightfully surprised by the uncrowded beaches, sensational surf breaks, magical rainforests and beautifully built towns. It's high time the world's wanderers added Panama to their adventure agendas.

Costa Rica & Panama Discovery

Tour leader Abdiel is 5 stars and trip is 4 stars. Intrepid itself zero stars as I had to pay twice for the same flight (Panama City to Miami) booked by Intrepid and Intrepid could not care less about the $450 lost. Overall considering all, 1 star due to Intrepid.

Panama is definitely worth exploring! Having travelled through the other 7 Central American countries with Intrepid, this itinerary continued to provide plenty of high quality variety and stimulation. Coiba Island (off Santa Catalina) and it's broad range of wildlife on land and in the sea was a particular highlight (and at least matched the equivalent sights in Caye Caulker, Belize).

Costa Rica & Panama Discovery

Excellent experience on Basix trip to Costa Rica/Panama. We are in our mid 50's and were nervous that it would be too basic but all the accommodation was more than adequate - a pleasant surprise! The Itinerary gave us a good sampling of Costa Rica and Panama. Our tour guide was professional & knowledgeable (Panamanian) getting us to our destinations safely, on time and well informed. The group we traveled with were awesome, various ages, from different parts of the world. Great value for a carefree, fun, and exciting adventure!

Was looking forward to a once in a lifetime trip with my mum; however, it was ruined with the most selfish/spoiled people on our trip. Costa Rica and Panama are beautiful.

The trip is excellent for those who wish to have security whilst traveling solo. Accomodation is excellent and the places you visit are truely remarkable. Having intrepid leader means that you get a real sense of the places you visit and knowledge that you can't pick up in a guide book. I felt safe in all places in this tour and although no activities were included it was easy to find a range of them with our leaders help. Snorkleing in Cobai Island is a must, swimming with turtle, sharks and seeing whales and dolphins. I would recommend this tour to anyone thinking of visiting Panama however I would suggest reading all information given in essential information.
