International River Trips

SEVEN DAYS - Our international rafting & touring offer.

Join Mountain Whitewater Descents and our partners at Aventuras Panama for an adventure travel experience that you will never forget!

Let’s travel to one of the most unspoiled natural places on the planet!

Panama is a spectacular unspoiled country with the charm that Costa Rica had 40 years ago. Panama City is a thriving metropolis containing banks from every corner of the world. Travel through Panama and you can travel through time where simplicity of life is as contagious as the rafting through tropical rainforest. The welcoming people are more than happy to engage you in conversation or guide you to yet another perfect picture. Panama is the tropical paradise that your mind has been dreaming about.
“Panama is by far my favorite place to visit. The San Blas islands are amazingly picturesque – bring plenty of film.” Brad Modesitt
