    Benefit from pick-up at your hotel in Panama City, and then journey by comfortable car to the Spanish colonial city of Portobelo, founded 420 years ago as the main port along the nation's Atlantic Coast.

    Ceasar is very personable and friendly. He took exceptional care of me during my private tour. I learned a lot about the history of Panama and met some interesting people. The island was gorgeous and the history of Portobelo was thought provoking. I will definitely book another tour through Safe Transportation whenever I go back to Panama.

We had an excellent Guide, apart from taking us to know the beauties of nature, it gave us a fun and entertaining talk, and also explained the history of the places we traveled.
