For countless centuries, the Caribbean Sea has always been an international destination for exotic and tropical adventures and now the Atlantic coast of Panama in Colon province offers an exciting and exhilarating blend of the Caribbean life as well as rainforest adventures to thrill-seekers visiting Central America.

Within our 28 hectares (69 acres) of authentic tropical rainforest, we offer a selection of activities designed for adventurers of all ages and experiences. From soaring through the trees at 30 meters (100 feet) in the air, to floating down the river in a tube, our guides will introduce you to our slice of jungle paradise and are always on the look-out for your safety while helping you create an experience you will never forget.

Canopy Zip-line Tour

Rapidly gaining a reputation throughout Panama as one of the finest canopy tour sites operating in the country, Panama Outdoor Adventures in Rio Piedra in the Province of Colon features 9 cables along its course of tree-top zip-lines. Each span sends the guest soaring through the jungle at heights that only the tree dwellers of the canopy can experience. The longest line on the tour is 225 meters long and provides a glimpse of one of the most stunning views of the jungle in the region.

River Tubing

The site that Panama Outdoor Adventures sits on is surrounded by the Rio Piedra, or “Stony River”. The river encompasses almost the entire property in a large loop and offers a great view of the surrounding jungle where you can view plant and animal life unique to Central America and Panama.

Enjoy splashing, swimming, swinging from one of the rope swings, or just floating along as the world passes you by. Visitors may rent an inner tube to float on and guides will accompany you as you soak in tranquility. Deep pools along the river allow for rope swing fun as well as just cooling off after some zip line adventures.
