Day 2

Sunday, September 3, 2017 CASCO VIEJO – PANAMA CANAL – GULF OF CHIRIQUI

10:00 hrs – Depart the Central hotel for a walking tour in Casco Antiguo. In 1673, after the devastating pirate attack, Panama City was moved some 7.5 km west, to a small peninsula at the foot of Ancon hill, closer to the islands that were used as the port and near the mouth of a river that eventually became the entrance of the Panama Canal. The relocated town, known today as Casco Antiguo or the Historic District of Panama, not only had better access to fresh water but could be fortified. Most outstanding are the various churches as well as the Presidential Palace, originally built in the late 17th century and partially reconstructed in the 18th, 19th and early 20th centuries, revealing example of the transformations that characterize the Historic District as a whole. Today Casco Antiguo is home to a lot of artists, galleries, handcraft markets, restaurants, vibrant night life and a wonderful mix of colors, people and flavors.

Join Yasmin for an exquisite sensory Panamanian chocolate journey that begins with the discovery of the cocoa tree to an unforgettable chocolate tasting experience in the historical district. You will have the chance to taste a variety of types, feel aromas, and flavors of cocoa followed by a healthy lunch.

In the afternoon, you will visit the Panama Canal Visitors’ Center at Miraflores Locks where ships can be seen transiting the waterway. The three floor exhibit halls will provide information about the history, engineering and current events related to the Panama Canal. Then you will be dropped off at Panama City’s domestic airport to catch a 50-minute flight to David, capital of the Chiriqui province, in western Panama. Chiriqui is the country´s “breadbasket” and contains some of the most breathtaking scenery in Central America. From the airport, you will be transferred on a one hour ride to Boca Chica. Bocas del Mar Hotel is on the mainland and overlooks the Gulf of Chiriqui Marine National Park. The hotel’s own dock is perfect to set off from on trips to visit the islands. Travel in style in the hotel’s own very comfortable 26ft excursion boat or center-console fishing vessel. The national park, created in 1994, covers 60 square miles (150 square km) of glistening ocean and over twenty magnificent islands dripping in luxuriant green forest and blessed with many palm tree-fringed beaches. When looking out from the hotel, you see Isla Boca Brava opposite to the right (not in the national park) and to the left Isla Linarte, the start of the national park proper. Just around the corner a world of easy and enthralling exploration opens up to you. The islands are a treasure trove of water and nature, where Spanish galleons and pirates once sailed. There are also many inland options to explore near the hotel.

Get settled and enjoy a welcome dinner and orientation with Yasmin.
