Answer: What is Monograms? That’s right, Monograms the so all you have to 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 select 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 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 Emberá  Indian Village, where you’ll witness ancient Emberá         
cultural dances and learn about their mystical rituals and knowledge of medical 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 1 ARRIVE IN PANAMA CITY, PANAMA

Arrive in beautiful, colorful, and vibrant Panama City. 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 cultures and historical as well as modern cityscapes.             
                                                                                                
Day 2 PANAMA CITY

After 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.  

Day 3 PANAMA CITY–GAMBOA RAINFOREST RESORT

Today, 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.                                                                                                         

Day 4 GAMBOA RAINFOREST RESORT

An enchanting journey takes you deep into the dense jungles of the Chagres, where the Emberá
Indians have lived for centuries. The adventure begins with a river cruise up the Chagres in dugout
canoes, the Emberá traditional  hand-carved boats. Upon arrival at the Indian village, you will be
taken back in time as you are immersed in ancient Emberá cultural dances and music that have
not changed much since Columbus arrived in the 1500s. The Emberás will give you a glimpse into
their mystical rituals and amazing knowledge of medicinal plants and other natural remedies. The
Indians will invite you to explore the area’s abundant variety of birds and wildlife during a trek that
takes you through the untouched jungle and past sparkling waterfalls. Top off your visit with a
typical lunch in the village.                                                                                                                                                                        

Day 5 GAMBOA RAINFOREST RESORT

Enjoy a free day to take advantage of the resort’s many activities, like an aerial tram tour,
kayaking, fishing, or birding and monkey tours. Alternatively, simply relax by the pool or at the spa.  

Day 6 GAMBOA RAINFOREST RESORT

                               Your vacation ends with breakfast this morning.
