Visit the original cobblestones of the legendary Camino Real, experience the history and get in contact with communities who strive for cultural and eco-tourism to improve their livelihood.

7:30AM you will be met in the lobby of your hotel by an EcoCircuitos representative. Drive from Panama City to Madden Lake. We will board a dugout canoe, observing the Chagres National Park rain forest on the lake’s shore, which are vital for the conservation of the Canal Watershed, and drinking water for Panama City. We will visit a well preserved section of the Camino Real, then we continue to the rural community of Quebrada Ancha. We will walk for about 800 meters over the original cobblestones of the Camino Real, where conquistadors, viceroys, the mule caravans, Francis Drake and pirates traveled. Take the time to observe the several sections of well-preserved colonial cobblestone of the original Camino Real.

Around noon we will have a delicious lunch and have a presentation of traditional dances by the community of Quebrada Ancha. In discussion with community members we will be able to know more about issues of conservation of cultural heritage and national parks. Learn about the recently started community Jaguar conservation project, its development and how rural communities participate in this project. Also learn how the Camino Real research project is playing an important role as vehicle for conservation and development. We will return by dugout canoe to the lakes shores, and the ruturn to Panama City, arrival around 4:30PM.
