Panama. Boating info please.


I'm living in Panama for a few months and am trying to meet other paddlers and adventure enthusiasts.

I'd love to paddle the rivers (and bike, trek etc) here but am finding it hard to to meet the right people and get info on what's out there.

Can you help? Any info/contacts much appreciated.


UK paddler. Approx.Class IV

Boquete Outdoor Adventures website has the best info. You could PM the guy who runs it . I think he is Millerotis on this forum. There is a lot of good boating up there. Seems like there was an outfitter in David that i read about somewhere.

A German guy was starting a kayaking service around Cocle [Santa Clara ?] several years ago,may not still exist, try googling XS Memories.

Renaissance Adventure Guides does trips on the Mamoni ,south [ really east] of the Canal Zone. They may be able to help you find other boaters,boats, or beta on rivers closer to Panama City.

There have been some 1st d's done around Bocas del Toro, some Rio Changuinola. Seems like the east central parts still have stuff to explore

Very useful thanks Cayo. I emailed Boquete OA and Renaissance and we'll see what they say. Less success on the Santa Clara suggestion. I'm not sure they're that active these days. I'll keep hunting..
Thanks for the post
