Additional Tour Options

// Possible Tours from our Associates

Having spent a lifetime in tourism, we have a great appreciation for any and all aspects of it! We have seen some incredible things in places where tourism is the main focus and explored far reaches to find things that are not in guide books. We worked hard to create what Barefoot Panama Tours has become, building a solid foundation and running quality tours everyday.. but, for tourism to really work it must be on a ‘community’ scale where we can all work together to provide visitors to this wonderful country the experience they are looking for. This page is dedicated to smaller tourism businesses, start ups, and people we like, doing what we love!

GET LOST . . in Paradise

Panama's islands - get lost in paradise.
Located in the Gulf of Chiriqui is a humble little slice of heaven! Personally my favorite part of Panama, usually reserved for high priced fishing trips.. Geoff has created a very affordable option to really enjoy this area for what it is.. an incredibly beautiful natural playground! Let him sail you away from the mainland to enjoy the peace and tranquillity of this amazing part of Panama. Snorkel, SUP, surf, fish or just work on your tan. Packages/Costs vary.. but if you have the time and REALLY want to see a special part of Panama, let us put you in touch with him!

The Tale of Two Cities

eock climbing and rappelling tour in panama

Casco Viejo and El Chorrillo. One a gem, the other a diamond in the rough. Victor takes you through the years of their coexisting history. His tour is not only immensely interesting it's humbling at the same time as uplifting and inspiring. Meet the main characters of this intriguing story, they offer good conversation, a friendly smile, a handshake.... El Chorrillo is a very special place, a birth place of many Champions. This is where Legends are born. Come see for yourself you will be surprised and enchanted. We invite you to come too and experience the real Panama not just the polished touristy side.

Photo: Volunteer helping Víctor Peretz with his Localinpty Kids Programme along side other wonderful volunteers every Wednesday to teach, the children of El Chorrillo, English using different methods (through activities, art, dance, music, yoga, etc.). I am inspired and moved by their plight.
