Day 2 El Valle

  • Hotel
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch
After breakfast we’ll continue our Panama travels with a two-hour drive along the Pan-American Highway into beautiful El Valle. This mountain town is located in the crater of an ancient volcano that erupted with such ferocity it left a 3-mile-wide scar on the landscape. This crater is the largest in the Americas. We’ll hike the valley’s trails admiring its hummingbirds and other tropical wildlife including a golden frog unique to the area. El Valle’s spring-like climate is perfect for exploring the vast variety of trails that run past Indian petroglyphs, hot spring and waterfalls. At El Macho Falls we’ll securely strap into a harness, and through a series of cables and pulleys, we’ll observe the landscape from four different platforms on a canopy adventure. At 220 feet above the forest floor, we share this rare and remarkable view with the animals sheltered within the canopy. Enjoy a traditional Panamanian lunch, and with time, explore the city’s markets where locals sell colorful handmade baskets, clay figures, vegetables and flowers. Overnight in El Valle

With over 2000 species of orchids, the sanctuary is one of Latine America's finest collections of Orchids. The rest of the afternoon is yours to explore and learn about the orchids.

Kate was great to work with in the planning stage. She was prompt, helpful, and efficient. Our tour guide, Edwin, was knowledgeable and passionate. We were very happy to have traveled with Adventure Life, it made the trip easy and a true pleasure. We could concentrate on enjoying the experience rather than the details of travel.
