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!
