    3.5 - Good

    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), and maybe chosing an original/comfort tour for better rooms.

      The website is so easy to use, and with a large number of tours to choose from and great 24/7 backup via phone and online chat, I wouldn't book my trips anywhere else. I also love earning credits towards future tours with each booking. Highly recommended.
