Collette Vacations recently announced a new eight-day Panama Family Adventure tour, adding to its Family Vacations brand.
With departures set to begin in June 2012, this tour spends three nights in a deluxe river view room at Gamboa Rainforest Resort, situated in Soberanía National Park; two nights at the five-star Intercontinental Playa Bonita beach resort, where families can kayak together; and two nights in bustling Panama City.
For families looking for a tropical rainforest experience like neighboring Costa Rica, this tour offers the added adventure of a partial transit Panama Canal cruise on the Pacific Queen.
In addition, ride the historic Panama Canal Railway and relax in elegant wooden rail cars as your family travels from the Atlantic to the Pacific.
Panama Family Adventure has been designed to keep the whole family engaged. Highlights include the opportunity to get hands-on with marine life at Punta Culebra Nature Center; spot crocodiles and monkeys during a lunch overlooking the Gamboa marina; savor the taste of pineapple fresh from the field during a tour of a pineapple plantation; learn how to cook sea bass and plantain cakes from a culinary demonstration hosted by a chef; and enjoy a private salsa dance lesson.
This tour is priced at $1,799 per person, double occupancy, land only and $1,199 for children ages 4 - 14.
