Day 2

Sunday, October 22, 2017 CASCO VIEJO – PANAMA CANAL – BOCAS DEL TORO

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 a lifetime of 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 at to catch a 60-minute flight to Isla Colon, the main island of the province Bocas del Toro. The islands of the Bocas del Toro Archipelago have been called the Galapagos of the Caribbean. They are located in the extreme western part of the country, only 25 miles from the Republic of Costa Rica. This Archipelago has the perfect combination of historical and cultural traditions, with a charming variety of aquatic species, coral reefs, mangroves, beaches with crystal clear water and undisturbed jungles with all the flora and fauna you can imagine. Without any doubt, the most famous visitor to this piece of paradise was the Admiral Christopher Columbus on October 6, 1502 on his fourth and last trip to the Americas. He entered with two vessels into a wide bay, now called Almirante Bay, took in provisions on the present Bastimentos Island and careened a ship in the vicinity of Carenero Island. After a 25-minute boat ride you will reach your eco lodge located on Bastimentos Island. Enjoy the quiet dock by the water, a wrap-around porch overlooking the bay, a relaxing outside, lush rainforest and tropical weather.

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