Escape the hustle and bustle of Panama City for the day on an 8-hour private tour to the Mystic Valley. Marvel at the mountain scenery of lush forests and colorful markets. Purchase local handicrafts to take home as souvenir gifts, and more.
What to Expect
Discover the Mystic Valley of Panama City, hidden between 2 majestic mountains on the outskirts of the metropolitan area. Home to wonderful scenery, colorful local craft market, and Nispero Zoo, the region makes for an exhilarating day trip from Panama City.
You will be picked up at 08:00 by a white-gloved chauffeur. Travel in the comfort of an executive BMW 7 series or Lincoln Navigator L (for more than 3 guests). Drive along the Inter-Americana Highway for no more than 2 hours, and enjoy the on-board Evian, Perrier, and Gatorade for hydration. A selection of magazines and a Samsung Tablet with high-speed Internet connection are also provided for your convenience.
Take a quick orientation tour of the town on arrival. Then, go straight to El Chorro del Macho to hear the fascinating story of a Native Indian princess who fell in love with a Spaniard. See the painted rock that shows the map of the Valley since hundreds of years. Take a 30-minute hike to a beautiful waterfall, where you can relax and swim in fresh waters from the mountain.
Later, visit a local market to look at local art and handicrafts, including ceramics, bateas (wooden trays), woven baskets, hats, carved and painted totumas (cups made from squash) and trinkets made from acorn.
After a break for lunch (own expense), see more than 55 species of birds at Nispero Zoo. Observe a variety of monkeys, the famous golden frog, and the beautiful jaguar, before a return transfer to Panama City at approximately 15:30.
