There are some nice rivers in western Panama on the border with Costa Rica, although it's a long way from Ciudad Panama. Most folks bus to the town of David in the Chiriqui province and there are a few outfitters up the valley in Boquete.

If you decide to come over to Costa Rica, maybe our new online forum would be useful...

Good luck and safe travels

If you can't get to Boquete there are other rivers closer to Panama City.The Chagres in the canal zone is boated but I think it's mostly very easy.The Mamoni a tributary of the Chagres is a whitewater river Renaissance Adventures has been doing they probably could give you beta.A German guy was starting a kayak outfitter in Santa Clara{about one hour from P city},with source to sea runs google XS Memories.You may want to get into playboating in the ocean or surfing.Bon Voyage.Lonely Planet Panama,has a guide book of sorts by John Miller in it.
