Day Trips in Fuerte amadorEdit This
The day trips from the Fuerte Amador emphasize the natural beauty
and historical importance of the area. Activities range from the
historic to the modern, but all of them focus on the outdoors.
Visit Old Panama
The first city in Panama was established in 1519, and became a trading stop on the way to and from Spain. Panama Viejo, or Old Panama, was looted and set on fire in 1671, but some of the ruins are still visible today, including the church of La Merced, convent of Saint Francis, and the King's bridge. There is a museum near the site which displays found objects from the original period.
Indian Village Tour
An Embera Indian Village is located one and a half hours from Panama City. Take a canoe up the river and through a rainforest on the way to the village. The river is the only way to access the village.
Two hours from Panama City on the Caribbean is a small town which includes ruins of Spanish forts. It was once a shipping point for mined gold and other treasures acquired through looting. As a result of the available riches, Portobello became a target for pirates who wanted to seize the treasures. English pirate Sir Francis Drake is thought to have died near the town.
Soberanía National Park
Soberanía has a 100-foot
observation tower which boasts views of the forest and its canopy. A
vast number of birds inhabit the park, and several world records have
been set there for the number of bird species spotted in one day. It is
also the home of resorts Canopy Tower and Gamboa Rain Forest Resort.
For a different small-town experience, visit the mountain town two hours from Panama City. It is known for the artists and craftspeople who sell items in town. Find an inexpensive restaurant for lunch and view the mountains from a zipline tour.
