Portobelo and Costa Arriba Beach Tour
Portobelo and Costa Arriba Beach Tour.
One of the biggest pleasures we have as VIP Panama Tours is introducing you to the beauty of the Costa Arriba region of the Province of Colón, Panama. This is where you get to experience the Caribbean life up close and personal!
This area of Panama is a hidden gem that is quietly getting exposure thanks to projects like Bala Beach, Playa Escondida Resort, Prime Caribbean Villas and of course the Safarick’s Zoo and Animal Rescue located in the tiny town of Maria Chiquita, Panama.
On this tour we will take you to the historic departure point for Spanish gold, Portobelo. This town was sacked by Captain Morgan himself. We will take you on a walking tour to see the ruins of both forts and the cannons used to defend them. We will also take you to the Church of the Black Christ.
After departing Portobelo we will take you to Safarick’s Zoo, where you are in for a real treat as you will be able to feed toucans, take pictures with monkeys and maybe even get a glimpse of an ocelot. Safarick’s Zoo is home to the longest aviary in Central America, measuring over 100 ft long. The aviary has over 20 species of birds.
Once we have completed the time at Safarick’s Zoo we have lunch. We have a few options Ocu at Bala Beach, Captain Jacks in Portobelo or a few local restaurants with typical Caribbean food.
After lunch we have the option of enjoying drinks by the Caribbean, going for a dip, jet skiing or if you would like you can choose to go zip-lining! We leave it up to you to choose.
We guarantee that the Portobelo and Costa Arriba Beach Tour will give you the best experience with nature and the Caribbean culture of Panama.
