The Beauty and the Beast: Anton Valley, a volcano crater adventure
If you want to go to a place that very few do; bumpy roads with stunning mountain views, unusual transportation and a paradise at the end, we can take you to a post card location at a dormant volcano crater called: Anton Valley.
This trip is 2.5 hours away from Panama City. and well worth it. On the way, if we have enough time, we may stop for breathtaking views from the Campana Mountains and will get the best Queso empanadas and our traditional panamanian chicheme.
We take it easy. If you like to start the day with a relaxing horseback riding through the mountains, let's dot it... Maybe you prefer to hike the Sleeping Indian Mountain or the Gaital and then.... relax on a secluded waterfall.
Aviel Kornfein rode on the back of a local transportation, on a rough country road, walked down the steepy hill, looked at this crystal clear blue waters, jumped in, swam for a while and came over to me and said: this adventure should be called: The Beauty and The Beast. and there it is.

The Colon of my heart: Portobelo & Isla Mamey
This is the province of my heart, were I was born and raised.
To enjoy Colon, I have to take you personally because this is a personal affair. Colon, despite what many people say, is worth visiting. Colon is the home of UNESCO historic sites such as Portobelo and San Lorenzo, black people who arrived in the 1600's from Africa, then for the railroad construction and some more for The Panama Canal construction. Colon is home of The Black Christ church, delicious food made with coconut milk, a tranquil ride along the crystal clear caribbean waters and more. During weekdays is better to avoid crowds at the beaches and if you are lucky you may find a solitary paradise.
Suggested starting time is 8:00 am. Travel Time from Panama City is 1 hr and 30 minutes aprox. Lenght of tour: 8-10 hours (including commuting time)
It is highly recommended
It is our rainy season... Expect rain and lots of fun
Yes, the rainy season kicked in, it is raining sometimes and that doesn't stop our tours. Its just rain and unless you melt with it, it will be fun.
From May until November rain is a common ocurrence in Panama. It doesn't rain everyday and no one knows when it will rain. Please stop checking the weather forecast and simply go with the flow!
There are 2 things no one has control over: weather and traffic, therefore, relaaaaaaaax and let the day come.
If you ask me how the weather would be, my answer ALWAYS would be: I don't know. I understand you want me to have a more specific answer but I don't have it. My advise is to let the day come and make the best out of it.
What happens if you book a tour and is raining? Simple. We go on tour, It's just rain. Of course, if there is a thunderstorm we will cancel the activity if it is outdoors. If it is City Tour, we rearrange the attractions to ensure you can do it.
The rain doesn't stop the party in our tropical country. Sunny and rainy days have their own magic in Panama.
