This is Jeopardy! Answer: This country is home to the engineering marvel that provides passage for nearly 14,000 ocean-going vessels per year. Question: What is Panama? Answer: This company makes it easy for you to travel to Panama by handling all the details for you. Answer: What is Monograms? That's right, Monograms handles the details, so all you have to do is show up for this 6-day vacation. We've arranged your hotel reservations, sightseeing, daily breakfast, two lunches, and transportation between destinations. Plus, you'll have the services of a Local Host, someone who can let you in on little-known secrets, answer questions, offer suggestions, and help you personalize your trip. All you have to do is have fun!

Your vacation begins in Panama City, where we can seamlessly pick you up at the airport for a transfer to your selected hotel. At your hotel, your Local Host will welcome you with a warm greeting and present you with the materials you need for your vacation. The next morning, after an included breakfast, we will pick you up at your hotel for your exclusive sightseeing tour with a local expert. You'll hear the inside stories and fascinating history of Casco Antiguo, founded in 1673 and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Be sure to ask your Local Guide for the best place to capture photos of the colonial buildings and historical monuments. Of course, you can't visit Panama and not see the Panama Canal, an engineering marvel like no other. That's why we'll take you to the Miraflores Locks Visitor Center, where you'll learn about the canal's construction and see vessels transiting through this engineering marvel. And that's not all?we have included a partial transit of the canal, where your ship will sail go through two locks and be lowered 90 feet to the Pacific Ocean!

Then it's time to relax. We'll take you via private transfer to Gamboa Rainforest Resort in the heart of Soberania National Park. Take a cruise up the Chagres River in a dugout canoe to visit an Embera Indian Village, where you'll witness ancient Embera cultural dances and learn about their mystical rituals and knowledge of medicinal plants. You'll even get lunch in the village! In Gamboa, you'll have plenty of free time to take advantage of the many activities, like an aerial tram tour, kayaking, fishing, birding or monkey tour, or just relaxing by the pool or at the spa.

Monograms includes all of this in your vacation package. Between the sightseeing we've arranged, the hotels we have booked, and the transportation we've included, we have saved you the cost of your time and the stress to put it together on your own! We do the work so you can just grab your swimsuit and camera, and head to Panama!

Day 1Panama CityArrive in Panama City, a beautiful, colorful, and vibrant city, where you will be met by your Local Host. Built in 1519 by Pedro Arias de Avila, a Spanish conquistador who made it his base for plundering Peru's riches, Panama today remains one of the central hubs for commerce and trade in the Americas. Panama offers diverse natural wonders, a melting pot of ethnicities and cultures, and historical as well as modern cityscapes.
Day 2Panama CityAfter breakfast, your PRIVATE CITY TOUR visits Casco Antiguo, the colonial area and oldest sector of modern Panama City, founded in 1673 and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This historic district was built as a protected walled city after Panama City was burned down in a pirate attack in 1671. Here, see the restored colonial buildings, churches, and historical monuments. Next, visit the MIRAFLORES LOCKS at the Panama Canal to witness this engineering genius in operation. During your guided tour, learn about the history of the canal and its construction, and observe transiting vessels navigating the locks from just a few feet away. (B)
Day 3Gamboa Rainforest ResortToday, a special treat is in store when you board a vessel for a Panama Canal PARTIAL TRANSIT. Your boat will enter the canal at the Gailard Cut, where the Chagres River flows into the canal and where the canal was carved through the Continental Divide. Enter the Pedro Miguel Locks, where your vessel will be lowered approximately 30 feet into Miraflores Lake. Continue to the Miraflores Locks to be lowered almost 60 feet to the Pacific Ocean. Disembark your ship and head to Gamboa Rainforest Resort within Soberania National Park. (B,L)

The adventure begins with a CRUISE up the river in dugout canoes, the Embera traditional hand-carved boats. Upon arrival at the INDIAN VILLAGE, you will be taken back in time as you are immersed in ancient Embera cultural dances and music that have not changed much since Columbus arrived in the 1500s. The Emberas will give you a glimpse into their mystical rituals and amazing knowledge of medicinal plants and other natural remedies.
