Touristic tours in Portobelo Panama
Cayuko – Kayaking Trip on the Chagres River
The silence of kayak navigation allows you to enjoy the sounds of the river and the mangroves. The natural conditions and beautiful scenery of the river offer a delicate experience of ecotourism; an intriguing challenge for the adventure and nature lover. The cayuko is the authentic way to cross the river: it is carved by hand from the trunk of the espave tree. Because of its weight and dimensions, keeping the balance requires skills. An alternative is to make the excursion in a modern, light kayak which can hold up to three persons.
Navigate among the Mangroves of the Chagres River
This is a relaxed way of observing the indigenous fauna, bird species which live in the humidity of our mangroves. The guides will show you an amazing habitat where apes, sloth bears, herons, crocodiles and iguanas all live together among the mangroves of the river.
Walking-tour along the Paths of the Rainforest
Accompanied by a guide, you will set off on a long tour in the forest of the estate, where you can enjoy the spectacular beauty of nature and the silence which is only broken by nature sounds. This excursion will lead you to a world inhabited by tropical butterflies, birds, apes, and an abundant tropical flora.
Tour around the Estate
This activity, which is somewhat lighter than the tour along the paths of the rainforest, has two options: climbing the fortifications San Fernando and San Fernandito in order to appreciate the military architecture and the view of historical monuments, or walking around the interesting surroundings of the dam.
