My dad & I were in Panama City on a father-daughter trip and were looking for a day-tour we could take, something fun and adventurous. Since it was outside of tourist season, we had trouble finding anyone operating any tours and we were feeling disappointed in losing the chance to get out and see Panama from a different perspective. That is, until we called Aventuras Panama Day Trips. Javier, the owner, explained to us they weren't running any tours outside of season at the time but, unlike other tour operators who simply turned us down, Javier offered to have us join him with his daughter for a kayaking lesson he had planned for her in Boqueron River in Chagres National Park. We were excited and grateful they were willing to have us join them on their personal day. The next day, our driver picked us promptly with a smile and helped us load the car with all the equipment we'd need for the day. The ride out there was beautiful and the Boqueron River peaceful. Some parts had some rapids, which lent to the fun. Javier was very helpful in teaching us tricks and maneuvers to get through them successfully. As the four of us floated down the river that day, I thought how nice it was to have a father-daughter day, all of us together. Both Javier and Daniela were very welcoming and fun to be around; we felt like part of the family. They'd brought snacks & drinks for us as well, which was a nice touch. For not being in season and a lot of operations down during this time, this was a special treat! I hear their regular tours are awesome, too!
