Portobelo and Venas Azules

Portobel with its forts, cannons, tales of pirates, and lovely beaches, Portobelo is a harbor rich in history. This experience is exceptional in the Panamanian Caribbean due to its great cuisine, Afro-descendant culture, and the friendliness of its people. You will go to Fort Santiago de Portobelo's ruins. Since all of the gold from the Spanish colonies originated at this site, it was a very significant landmark during colonial times. The oldest Spanish fort on the continent, construction on it began in 1598. Many pirates, including the well-known pirate Henry Morgan, have attacked it.
We will board a boat out of the Portobelo port and travel through the mangroves, where we can admire the stunning turquoise color of the sea and starfish. Here you will enjoy a day at the beach sunbathing or appreciating the coral while snorkeling. 
You will enjoy attractive beaches and islands that surround the coast, in addition to delighting in the exquisite Caribbean cuisine.

We had a great experience with our tour guide Stui! He told us so much about the volcanos, the history and people of the region! We enjoyed the tour because we got to taste Bizcochos at the place where they are made, we went to Lago de San Pablo, the Otavalo market, Cotacachi and hiked a bit in Cuicocha to see the beautiful lake! This experience was amazing,many thanks to our guide Stui, you are going a great job!!!

Working with this company has been a pleasure. Christina was responsive, helpful, thoughtful, accommodating and extremely pleasant to work with. Waita Lodge is THE PLACE TO STAY in the Amazon. Owned and operated by local Ecuadorians, you get their true experience, and with passion, of the Amazon from people with an authentic love and care for the local community and environment of the Amazon. The food was amazing, meals prepared beautifully, service attentive and the environment homey. Portion of the profits go to advocacy efforts in the local communities of the Amazon.



Very good organization; always fast communication/response by Pablo/EcuaTraveling. The program took us to places and people we would not have selected/visited and that made it unique. The acclimatization tour @ Iliniza Norte was a great choice!
