    First time with Intrepid and I found Marvin an excellent tour guide. The group was also a good mix. The itinerary was busy but I loved every minute. Will definitely do another tour

    Very disappointed that the accommodation in Boquete was a hostel. According to the itinerary we were not staying in any hostels.

    Issac was a great guide, but the accommodations had lots of bugs & Panama was super rainy so we couldn't do many activities. I would recommend not going during the rainy season, saving lots of $ for activities (Panana is pricier than most of Latin America),... Read more

Questions & Answers

Here we have collected and answered the most frequently asked questions about this tour.

    • I'm a solo traveller, what do I need to know about the accommodation of this tour?

      If you are travelling solo you will be automatically paired with another same sex, solo traveller. Accommodation is included every night of the tour in twin share rooms.
      If this does not sound suitable for you, you do have the option to upgrade to a private room for an extra cost. Please contact us to arrange this.

    • Is the single supplement mandatory?

      The single supplement is completely optional. You are not required to pay a single supplement to join the tour. The tour price advertised is based on a twin share basis, if you are a single traveller you will be roomed with a passenger of the same gender. The single supplement optional cost is if you would like your own room on the tour.

    • Do I need to have travel insurance to do this tour with Intrepid?

      Travel insurance is mandatory for all Intrepid Travel tours, and a policy will cover you for emergency trip cancellation, interruption and delay.
