We are going to a new ADVENTURE destination….Panama!  We are very excited about this vacation!  Why?  Because we have 2 vacations in one!  The scenic adventure in the mountains of the Anton Valley and the beautiful Pacific Ocean area of Playa Blanca!  We start high in the mountains with a “3 Night Volcano Experience” staying at Los Mandarinos Hotel & Spa.  The quiet, nearby town of El Valle is located in the crater of the 2nd largest inhabited DORMANT volcano in the world!  This cloud forest has amazing hiking and touring, complete with a cloud forest and exotic animals and plants.  Then it’s onto the ocean and beach for 4 nights at the all-inclusive RIU Playa Blanca Resort!  The resort has many included activities, restaurants, daytime and nighttime entertainment, and tours available!  You can even take a morning or a day to view the Panama Canal! Diving with the on sight dive operation, Scuba Caribe.  GREAT for divers, snorkelers and non-divers alike. Great for those who would like ADVENTURE!  This is an awesome vacation for families and teachers, as it is over Spring Break.  All are Welcome!
