Panama has several Zipline and Canopy tour options throughout the country. There are four popular places to do this activity, which are: Boquete, Anton Valley, Gatun Lake and Gamboa. In these places you can experience different types of environments while you slide, from the temperate climate of the highlands in Boquete to the humidity of the jungle in Gamboa.
There are several operators that offer Zipline and Canopy tours in these places. Here, I am going to share a tour in each place, which in the end, are the best zip line and Canopy tours in Panama and are available to book at Tiqy.com.
12 Lines Canopy Tour in Boquete (From 65 USD P/P)
Boquete is internationally known for its natural beauty and temperate climate. This makes the 12-line Canopy tour an unforgettable experience. The tour begins at the operator's offices in Plaza los Establos in Bajo Boquete. You will be taken to the park where the 12 cables with a length of 4.5 kilometers are located. The tour lasts approximately 4 hours and while you glide in the air you can admire the wonderful landscape of La Amistad International Park and the slopes of the famous Baru Volcano.
If you are in Boquete, you should only have to go directly to Plaza Los Establos, which is a 5-minute walk from the Domingo Medica Park in Bajo Boquete. From David, it is approximately 45 minutes, you can go by bus or in your car. Finally, if you go from Panama City it is a 7-hour trip by car or an 8-hour trip if you go by a bus called "Panama - David".
Gatun Lake Canopy Zipline Tour (From 53.50 USD P/P)
Gatun Lake is a fundamental asset for the operation of the Panama Canal and if you are looking for a little of the Canal experience while you slide down the cables over the Gatun Lake, this Zipline tour over the Gatun Lake is for you. Consists of sliding down 5 lines with a length of 2.5 km. You will always have a bilingual guide that will accompany you during the activity, to make sure you enjoy this full experience and also will explain to you a little about the history of the Panama Canal. The tour lasts approximately 4 hours and while you slide, you will be able to appreciate the incredible landscapes of the Panama Canal basin.
The tour includes pickup and drop-off at your hotel in Panama City. If you want to take the Zipline tour over the Gatun Lake without transportation, you must go on your own to the operator's offices that are 1 hour from Panama City. To get to the tour operator offices, it is recommended to take a taxi or Uber to take you directly. The taxi will cost approximately 25 USD, but if you have your own vehicle or you rented it, you can use the navigation applications such as Google Maps or Waze to get there. If you book the tour without transportation on Tiqy.com, you will receive complete instructions after booking to get to the tour operator offices.
10 Line Canopy Tour in Gamboa (From 64.20 USD P/P)
Gamboa is an excellent option if you want to appreciate a beautiful tropical jungle in contrast to the surroundings of the Panama Canal, while sliding down the cables. The 10-line Canopy tour in Gamboa lasts 2 hours and consists of sliding down 10 lines with 13 platforms. On the tour you will always have a guide and will provide you with interesting and historical data of the sites, animals and plants that you will come across during the tour.
The tour includes pickup and drop-off at your hotel in Panama City, but if you want to do the same Canopy tour in Gamboa without transportation, you have to make your own to the tour operator offices, which are 35 minutes from Panama City. You will receive complete instructions after booking to get there. I recommend using your own car, taxi or Uber so that you can get directly to the tour operator offices without problems. The cost of the Taxi or Uber can be approximately 10 USD per trip.
Canopy Tour in Anton Valley (From 230.00 USD P/P)
The Anton Valley is a very popular destination for its fresh climate, making outdoor activities a pleasure. The Canopy tour in the Anton Valley consists of 4 Canopy lines around the Chorro Macho and the natural beauty that the Anton Valley offers you. After sliding down in the cables, you will visit a local restaurant and a handicraft market, so that you can buy a souvenir of your visit to the Valley. The tour includes pickup and drop-off at your hotel in Panama City, a bottle of water, and a bilingual guide to whom you can consult what you need during the tour.
You can also do the tour in the Anton Valley from Beach Hotels. You will be picked up and dropped off at your beach hotel, like The Buenaventura Golf & Resort, Hotel Riu Playa Blanca, The Sheraton Resort Bijao Beach, The Playa Blanca Resort or El Royal Decameron Panamá.
