Explore the remote Caribbean Coast of Veraguas
INFORMATION & SCHEDULE
Monday thru Sunday: Full day
Meeting Place: Hermanos Pineda Restaurant, Center of Santa Fe Town
KAYAK 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!

A WORD ON WEATHER
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.
WHAT TO BRING
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 .
