UNESCO World Heritage site - Discover the historical side of Portobelo and explore the ruins let behind by the Spanish. Hidden forts that can only be reached by boat and secret outposts in the jungle remain from a time when the Spanish defended one of the most vital ports of its era.
Explore the rivers by kayak - Kayak through the mangroves and explore the 3 different rivers that empty intoPortobelo bay. Lots of wildlife and beautiful scenery make this one of the best parts of Portobelo National Park. Silent surroundings create excellent conditions for birdwatching as well as a large selection of mammals and reptiles that can be found in each of these unique locations.
Snorkeling by kayak - Kayak to the islands and snorkel in some of the clearest water in the Caribbean. The beaches nearby are a perfect place to relax and are only accessible by boat, making it easy to find your own private paradise. With a cooler and some dry-bags a kayak allows access to places that would be hard to reach for others, while still being able to keep all of your gear with you. Just paddle up to the reef, set your anchor, and dive in!
Hiking in the jungle - Trekking through the rainforest is the best way to see the local wildlife. Good shoes and long pants are necessary, but you never have to go far to find amazing flora and fauna! *Keep in mind that there are no official trails set up yet by the park authorities and lots of privately owned land within the area as well, so be sure to be accompanied by someone who knows the way!
Camping - Because there's only so much that you can see in a day, camping is the best way to truly immerse yourself in your surroundings. With the right equipment, going the extra distance can be very rewarding. Remote waterfalls in the jungle and hidden trails along the coast give multiple options for adventure, whether it's under the protection of the rainforest canopy that you prefer, or paddling between islands as you fish and explore the reef in this little known part of the Caribbean.
Diving - if you like what you see on the surface, why not go deeper? With so many great locations to dive nearby, it's hard to choose, so let the experts decide for you at Golden Frog Scuba. The most professional crew along this coast offers excellent instructors and bilingual service that could easily make this experience one of your favorites!
