This tour was a perfect trip! Canal of course was the highlight and we think the complete transit is the way to go although it was a long day. Tours were just exceptional and the hotel was good, too. for the value it was well-priced so we can heartily recommend it. Panama is the coming place -- friendly people, not expensive, beautiful scenery, and they're building hotels and resorts like crazy so should be ready for the tourists . We especially enjoyed the trip to the Anton Valley and mountains. fun shopping as well! Thanks for arranging such a fun trip! Read more

How lucky we were to have stumbled upon Eco Circuitos this winter during our vacation to Panama! Not only were they willing and able to organize a daylong boating and hiking excursion for us along the Panama Canal and Soberania National Park. I can't recommend Eco Circuitos more strongly, not only for their gratifying commitment to their clients, but also for their honest and much-needed devotion to sustainable exploration of the diverse environments of Panama. We were lucky enough to spend our anniversary in the company of spider and capuchin monkeys, hummingbirds, crocodiles, turtles, and a three-toed sloth. I hope that you may also have such a chance yourself! Read more
