Panama was an epic trip. We were looking for a beach vacation and wanted to see the Panama Canal. The itinerary and service provided by Reyna was excellent. Reyna checked in with us throughout the tour. The trips/transfer to and from the Pearl Islands and to Bocas del Toro were arranged by Reyna and her team and we had no problems at all. She communicated with our hotels and drivers throughout the trip. The drivers were helpful and informative. One of the tours Reyna recommended was a rain forest boat tour of Gatun lake- which is entered via the national park in Panama City. This is a real treat and not to be missed and gives a real perspective of Panama canal's history and geography. Our guide for Gatun Lake and then a visit to Colon, Jenny who is a local, was excellent. I really appreciated her enthusiasm and she clearly knew area well- not to mention where to get the best raspado in town. We spent two nights at Oro y Mar on Isla Contadora which was the most elegant hotel on the island with a beautiful private beach. This was a quiet stay as the island is small. We stayed at Island Plantation in Bocas del Toro- I can't say enough about this place- beautiful with a pool, private beach and far way yet close enough to the town to go into town. We took day trips from there with Kawi Voyage Eco-tours and our guide Sophie Garcia was fantastic. We packed a lot into this trip but it never felt like too much. Thank you Reyna and your team!

Hotel Review
Hotel Island Plantation
Isla Colon, Bocas del Toro

Highly recommend. The place itself is beautiful and serene- a real retreat. They have their own beach with the restaurant above so it felt like the tropical vacation I was looking for. Thank you Chris and Choco!

The place itself is beautiful and every detail is noticeable.
Away from the main town but close enough to go into town at any time.
From owner to the staff they attended to us. Really kind and helpful.
