Empfehlungsschreiben Dschungel- und Wolkenwald
Hello Javier this is Kissle.
I just wanted to personally thank you for the
great trip. Ben, Dustin, Eric, Myke and I all agree that the rivers we
ran with you were among the most memorable we have yet experienced. The
whole week was very exciting and enjoyable. Every day a new adventure
was awaiting us. I can't imagine a more productive way to experience
adventure in Panama than the way you hosted us. I would and will
reccomend Adventuras Panama to any of my friends, family or clients who
are thinking of Central America as a destination.
I also wanted to compliment your personal
character for being unnaffraid to take a chance and follow your passion,
adventure. I think it's pretty cool that you are bold enough to take a
chance to do something great with your life. So many people are unhappy
with the lives they live because they have abandoned their passions.
Adventuras Panama is a great outfitter and I hope you continue building
it up and up, there is no limit.

Ich komme gerade von dem Trip 100-20 (Regen- und
Wolkenwaldabenteuer) zurück und wollte einen kurzen Reisebericht
Der Trip war eine herausragende Erfahrung und die
Aktivitäten, als auch die Logistik waren beeindruckend! In dieser einen
Woche habe ich so ziemlich alle großen Flüsse Panama’s mit ihren
jeweiligen karaktären kennen gelernt und wir hatten jede Menge Spaß beim
rafting und kajaking. Meine Tour habe ich zusammen mit einer Gruppe von
professionellen Reiseleitern einer US Rafting Firma verbracht, die genau
so, wenn nicht sogar noch begeisterter waren.
Mein Highlight war das Zeltlager in dem Dschungel. Eine
wirklich extraordinäre Erfahrung die uns allen viel Spaß gebracht hat!
Erstaunlich waren besonders die Reiseleiter die uns die Woche über
begleitet hatten. Man merkt sofort, dass sie etwas verstehen von dem was
sie machen und das ihnen die ganze Sache Freude bereitet.
Sie waren durchweg sehr zuvorkommend, lustig und dennoch
Wir haben sogar frisch gefangenen Fisch über unserem
Lagerfeuer grillen können.
Ganz besonders auf den Flüssen dann, hat man die
Professionalität der Tourleiter bemerkt und einiges von der exotischen
Flora und Fauna sehen können.
Nach einem so extraordinären und vor allem höchst
abenteuerlichem Trip, habe ich nun tatsächlich Schwierigkeiten mich
wieder in meinen Alltag zu finden. Ein großer Teil von mir wildert noch
immer durch den Dschungel und entdeckt die Schluchten der Flüsse.
There is a saying "When was the last time you did something
for the first time." With our adventure to Panama we had several exciting
experiences for the first time. Thanks to the expert planning of Aventuras
Panama and their knowledgeable and friendly guides, our CHAMPS group from
the States, had one exciting adventure after another. From hiking in the
jungle amongst the many species of exotic birds and monkeys, snorkling on
the San Blas archipelago and learning the culture and customs of the Kuna
people, ziplining atop the cloud forest near Volcan Baru, white water
rafting on the Chiriqui River, tasting fresh coffee brewed right there at
the coffee plantation near Boquete, learning the fascinating history of the
Panama Canal as we watched the ships pass through the locks, visiting Casco
Viejo with it's colorful historical past were once in a lifetime adventures
we will always treasure.
Thank you to Aura, Fabio and Joshua for planning and guiding
us along our memorable, interesting and exciting adventure to Panama. The
|I just received an
excited phone call from Daryl Date upon his return from Panama. He ranted
and raved over what a great time he had with Adventuras Panama on the
Chagres. He praised your staff for being so much fun, but at the same time
very professional and safety conscious.. He was so impressed with the entire
experience he could not thank me enough for recommending your company and
So, I in turn would like to thank you and your company for taking very good
care of an old friend. I am still amazed that your company runs the Chagres,
it's an astonishing compliment to your tenacity and the skill of Adventuras
Panama's guides and staff. Through their skill you allow others to share one
of Panama's natural treasures.
The only problem is that Daryl made me jealous of the trip, now I can't wait
to schedule my own trip with my amigos when next I'm in Panama.
|I was on the last trip on the Chagres. I
was the guy who has guided in the States.
I have to say that you guys did a great job. I can't believe the logistics
of the trip and that you put it all together with a great amount of
I've rafted many rivers in the U.S. and I have to say that none of them had
the beauty of the Chagres. Your guides were very talented and new the ins
and outs of every bend of the river.
The highlight of the trip for me was seeing the fish at the lunch beach. I
am an avid fisherman and I miss the free flowing streams of North Idaho. I
am planning of doing the challenge again, but I would like to make it a 2
day, or even 3 day trip so I can experience the fishing.
I live here in Panama, and I know you have problems with getting guides for
the weekends. I am available on the weekends for guiding, or safety boating
in an inflatable as well. I don't speak hardly any Spanish, so I would be
good for your English speaking guests.
I can't say enough about what a great time I had, and I know our group is
with me on that. I look forward to booking another trip with you. Next time
we'll go after the big water.
|We really enjoyed
the Chagres Challenge yesterday.. .once in a lifetime experience... The
Guides were very nice. Thanks- Andre Vezina
|A very memorable trip! My brother and I
had a lot of fun. Thank you for your help and for putting on a great
adventure! - Kirk

I wanted to let you know what a wonderful time we all had kayaking
yesterday! Everyone in our group loved it - and we had a wide range of
ages and abilities (and languages!). The guides were great, very friendly
and knowledgable, and we all felt very comfortable with them. The river
was beautiful, and we saw lots of wildlife (thanks Nelson!). We could not
have asked for a better day!
Thank you for all your help getting it arranged, we would not have
wanted to miss this!
Omar and Tony are looking forward to rafting with you all on Friday : )
|We all had a great
time on our trip with Aventuras Panama. The paddling and snorkeling were
enjoyed by all. The crew you sent with us treated us well and did a great
job with the cooking and all the chores. We are not use to being pampered so
well. Our daughter Alena learned how to roll a kayak and we are all very
The fruit selection was good and we consumed great quantities. Our group
would like to have had a few more desserts and some more candy or granola
bars to boost our energy while paddling.
We will certainly recommend Aventuras Panama. I will be send you some
pictures via AOL. Open them as a guest. Thanks for sharing your photo's with

"Wow! What a ride. I've rafted in Colorado, Tennessee,
and Costa Rica ---- our trip down the Mamoni River ranks in the top of my
list. There was time for thrillin' and chillin' and everything in between;
what beautiful, verdant countryside and clear healthy water. There was plenty
of technical challenge on several rapids to keep us super-charged and I was
very impressed with the competency of our guide, as well as their knowledge
of the area history and the river itself. Definitely an adrenaline rush on
several of the Class IV's....we got our money's worth and much more. I agree.....atrevete
a vivir! Hope to see you again on this wonderful river". Angie T.,

"I can't say
enough about the raft trip provided. The guys did a super job. VERY
professional, and very kind in dealing with a bunch of seriously amateur
river-rafters! I would recommend your company to anyone!" - Paul

mid December - March
"Thanks for everything. We had a blast at
Mamoni. I must admit, kayaking with two people is much more difficult than
solo. However, we enjoyed every minute of it . . . and the guys made it even
better. When I return to the States I'm going to buy a solo kayak and master
