After breakfast we board the van for our trip across the Isthmus of Panama, the narrowest part of the country. Along the way we will stop at Las Cruces Trail and walk a small portion of the trail that was used by the Spanish conquistadors to bring their cargo to and from the city of Panama. From there we continue to the port town of Portobelo famous for its trade fairs during the 17th century.


A picnic lunch will be served at Fort San Lorenzo. Built at the mouth of the Chagres River to fortify and protect the river entrance to Las Cruces Trail and also used as the port of entry for the gold diggers on their way to California during the Gold Rush period. We will be traveling along lush rainforest where we might have the opportunity to see more Monkeys, Sloths, Toucans and other wildlife. This afternoon we return to the city by train, on board the Panama Canal Railway and reminisce on those adventurous travelers in search of fortune and fame. This hour ride will take us alongside the Panama Canal with spectacular views, transfer to the hotel.
