Lake Bayano, Panama Boat Tour Description

On the edge of the Darien Gap in the furthest corner of majestic Lago Bayano there is a hole in the earth, and those brave enough to explore are rewarded with an amazing experience.

The adventure starts as we hike deep into and through the wet, but spacious, caves as we make our way through the caverns and pools. Water cascades from the ground above into the Jurassic underworld. As we near the end of the cave light creeps in from crevasses above and eventually we are hiking through narrow canyons. A natural rain forest swimming hole greets us on the other side. After the hike we enjoy a locally prepared lunch before heading back to Panama City.

This is adventure tourism at its best. Our boat drivers and guides come from the local village and we contribute funds to the community, which are used to maintain and protect the unspoiled natural environment. 

What you need to know/bring:

  • Good Hiking Shoes
  • Swim Suit
  • Dry Change of Clothes
  • Your Passport
  • Bug Spray
  • Bottled Water

Shoes: Shoes or sandals with straps (the caves are wet and the rocks can be slippery, please choose footwear appropriately!)

Please keep in mind, on this tour you will get wet from the neck down.  There will be a place to store bags and personal belongings before entering the cave, but anything that goes into the cave will get wet!

*This is an advanced level tour and might not be suitable for children under 15 years of age. Inside the cave we may encounter real dangers such as snakes, spiders, caymans and potential flash floods. The ability to swim is a must.
