When we film “Into the Wild”, our international travel plans and logistics are of the utmost importance so that our production team can cover fascinating animal stories. After landing in Panama we hit the ground running & had smooth sailing through the rainforests, mountains, and surrounding islands--producing 5 full episodes of “Into the Wild” along the way. Everything was organized perfectly by our good friends, Win Rice of Panama Jones and Judy Tovar of EasyTravel Panama. They were with us at every turn, insuring that we were always taken care of, successful—and, happy!

This incredible journey takes us to the jungles of Chagres, where we will encounter the Embera Indians. Our adventure begins with a 15 minute dugout canoe transfer up the Chagres River. Along the way, we will discover the jungle's many splendors. The Embera are a unique and beautiful people. They live much as they did when Columbus arrived in the 1500's. You will soon forget the outside world as you are immersed in their cultural dance and music.
Visitors are invited to explore the area's abundant variety of birds and wildlife during a jungle trek that includes a visit to local waterfalls. During our visit, we will see that the Embera possess amazing botanical knowledge - most will be surprised to learn of their contributions to modern pharmaceuticals. We are welcome to paint our bodies as the Embera do, with a natural dye called Jagua. We will also have the opportunity to purchase Embera handicrafts.
A peaceful ride in a dugout canoe, a trek through the jungle, the opportunity to learn from this gentle culture - all this in one day and within one hour of Panama City. BL
May 26 - The Panama Canal is quickly becoming Central America's newest tourism destination. Of all the wondrous things Panama has to offer, the Panama Canal is probably the single best known among Americans. This, of course, is primarily because Panama and the United States have one thing in common - history.
There is probably not a single person in the United States who isn't aware that Teddy Roosevelt played a major part in the construction of the Panama Canal. Since the opening of the canal in 1914, millions of people have passed from ocean to ocean enroute to countless destinations. Many have returned to that beautiful and mysterious place called Panama' that they had once only viewed from a passing freighter, tanker, passenger ship or military vessel.
The Panama Canal seems to be a major attraction bringing visitors from around the globe to see what is sometimes called, "The eighth wonder of the world". With that in mind, most of our packages treats our travelers to a full or partial Panama Canal transit.
Partial Panama Canal transits may depart from Flemenco Island at 7:30 am for a north bound partial transit, or we will provide a bus departarting from Flemenco Island at 10 am to Gamboa for the southbound transit to Flemenco Island. Usually only one partial will be provided, morning or afternoon. Partial transits cruuise through both Pacific sets of locks (Miraflores and Pedro Miguel), and the Gailard Cut.

May 27 – Transfer to the airport. B
