SPEND THE MORNING IN A KAYAK EXPLORING THE ESTUARIES AND BAYS OF THE CARIBBEAN COAST OF VERAGUAS.
With a diverse display of bird life, mangrove and jungle at the water's edge, you spend the morning paddling in calm water, absorbing the sights and sounds of this remote coast line. Paddle over to the island to explore the coconut groves, swim in the fresh water rivers, walk along the Caribbean sand beaches and experience the local town at the river's mouth as they transition into a more accessible community upon the opening of the Atlantic highway.
This option is ideal for families or people looking for an alternative to still explore the river without the rapids as the water in the river mouth is calm with limited tidal variation. Additionally those looking to fish please let us know!
WHAT TO EXPECT
The climate on the Caribbean side of Panama can be very unpredictable so please be aware that this trip is dependent on the weather and the river level. While a light drizzle won't stop you exploring, if the weather turns for the worst it is always better to be safe than sorry and exit the water.
We recomend that you pack a water bottle, swim suit, rain jacket, hat, sunblock, insect repellant, set of dry clothes, river shoes or crocks, dry bag or ziplock for electronics and cash in smaller denominations.

Calovebora, up until February 2020 was largely inaccessible due to the lack of a paved road. Named, 'The Conquest of the Atlantic' the building of this highway to connect Calovebora to the the rest of mainland Panama begun in early 2016.
The beach front village located at the end of the road, on the mouth of the Rio Calovebora is a clash of old and new, traditional and technology. We are at a time in history where we are able to see these changes happening before our eyes and a trip into this area will not only be a natural adventure but also a cultural one .
OTHER ACTIVITIES IN THE AREA
While the kayaks will provide access to private fishing spots, secret channels and jungle covered estuaries, there are plenty of other activities to do while you are in Calovebora.
Take a walk along the expansive, deserted Caribbean beaches under the shade of the millions of coconut palms, explore the river mouthes frequented by the population of free range, friendly domesticated pigs, scramble up the cliffs for a better view of the coastline that boasts to be one of the most remote in the world and relax on the warm sands knowing you are miles away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
