Dog Friendly Tours in Panama

Panama City, the capital of Panama, is a modern city framed by the Pacific Ocean and man-made Panama Canal. Casco Viejo, its cobblestoned historic center, is famed for colonial-era landmarks like the neoclassical Palacio Presidencial and bougainvillea-filled plazas lined with cafes and bars. The Miraflores Locks offers views of ships traversing the canal, an essential shipping route linking the Atlantic and Pacific

Video Review of Selina Kalu Yala

The property will take care of transportation by 4×4 from Basecamp to the valley of Kalu Yala.

Our time at Selina Kalu Yala exceeded expectations on so many levels. I decided last minute late on a Friday night to take my 4 year old son and dog on a weekend adventure.

Why You Should Book Selina Kalu Yala

The site is beautiful and relaxing, nestled deep in a valley with a stunning river, plant life, and surrounding mountains.

The entire Kalu Yala staff was incredibly friendly and accommodating, and they took my kid and dog in like part of the community.

Zoe even set up an impromptu art class for my kid, and he *loved* it. Others showed him around the plant and animal life.

The 30 minute drive from the basecamp to Kalu Yala is one of the toughest roads I’ve experienced – fortunately, guests don’t have to drive it!

Leo is an amazing driver and takes you in a 4×4 from the basecamp through the valley. He was right on time.

Came here with my family, We wanted to be surrounded by nature and the jungle. The property is bordered by wonderful rivers with clear and clean water, we all enjoyed swimming and taking sun.

We also did the Jaguar falls hike, it was a challenge but well worth it when we arrived to a beautiful waterfall at the end. Staff offered wonderful hospitality.

Super family friendly, pet friendly.

The Bar staff was super great as well, great cocktails, good music, was a overall great time. I would recommend this as a top 10 place for anyone visiting Panama ??

It is a very good place to have fun with family, partner and friends. It has quite comfortable facilities and they are also pet friendly! amazing, right?

If you like to enter this incredible experience, do not hesitate, you will be in the hands of excellent guides who will take you on various walks … do not hesitate to go have fun.

Love love love coming here for a weekend away from the city. I stayed in the selina private bungalow this time and fell asleep to the sound of rain.

Hospitality is always perfect, zoe and alejandrina greeted us with big smiles and made us immediately feel at home.

There are hikes for beginners and intermediate hikers and also a lot of rivers to swim in.

To top it off they are pet friendly and it is doggy heaven!.

Why You Should NOT Book Selina Kalu Yala

Selena Kalu Yala Panama ?? is a very special experience in the Panamanian jungle. We stayed in one of the teepees in Selina’s section and it was a great experience expect the lack of staff communication.

I scheduled a trip to Jaguar Falls tour as soon as I arrived on the property and was told to be at the parking lot at 0900 on Saturday. I was there at 0850. After waiting for a while, we were told that the tour had left at 0900 but we can do it on Sunday.

However, I spoke to another guest and they told me they had went to Jaguar falls tour at 1100 am on Saturday. On Sunday we were told that they didn’t have a tour guide for Jaguar Falls tour but there was another event happening.

I was very angry that a family who arrived later got to see the waterfalls when I arrived on time and also asked. I was also charged for a “tour” which was a 5 minute walk up and down the river band, which was a total rip off.

The place is beautiful but there is poor communication between staff and I lost my opportunity and money to Jaguar Falls

Why You Should Book Global Hotel Panama

My husband and I had a wonderful experience at Grace Panama and we will stay here again when we visit Panama City.

Jean Carlo and the rest of the staff were professional and ready to be at your service. We also loved the breakfast buffet which had a wonderful variety of choices.

We like also the fact that they accept small pets because our Maltese is a world traveler like ourselves. Everyone knew when it was here “po-po” time.

We stayed at the Global for 3 days — after having switched from the W Hotel.
The room was great (modern and clean) with a nice view and the hotel front desk and bellman/valet were very helpful.
My kid loved the pool — it was quiet and nice. The morning breakfast was good but slightly overpriced (they had a 2-for-1 promotion while we were there and it worked out well).
Overall, this hotel is a great value and well situated for a stay in Panama City.
Why You Should NOT Book Global Hotel Panama
The paid for breakfast was limited in selection and quantity, wasn’t allowed to have two proteins (eggs/sausage)
The water temperature wasn’t hot enough. Didn’t learn that pet fees were additional 75.00 until we checked in.

Video Review of W Panama

Breakfast is available every morning, and includes continental, buffet and American options.

The hotel offers a sun terrace and has a 24-hour front desk. An array of bars and restaurants in the vibrant Uruguay Street are found nearby.

Why You Should Book W Panama Hotel

Pool area– In general, the pool area is hip and fun. I wish the big fancy W could stay in the corner of the pool at all times. It is fabulous and deserves a permanent home.

The pool attendants are super attentive and even offer you sunscreen on a tray. Nice touch.

My only criticism is that it is like insanely hot on the Wet Deck. There are only a few umbrellas and they do not roll on wheels. The staff aren’t actually able to move them easily.

Having a bit more shade by the pool would make the experience all the better.

The Living Room– I very much like the feel of the living room. I had the shish kabobs and though they are very small, they were absolutely delicious!

Moro – The buffet breakfast is fantastic.

There is a huge selection and I love the fresh squeezed juices (melon, watermelon, piña, mango).

I also really love the Panamanian breakfast section complete with tamales de pollo, queso blanco and cheese and/or chicken empanadas. YUM.

I also like that you can ask for fried eggs if you want to have something different than what is available.

There is also fresh honey that drips from a honeycomb and there are various infused honey pots, ex. passionfruit honey.

The cheese selection is good, but is restricted to what is available in Panamá (brie, blue cheese, manchego).

Pets– The hotel is super dog friendly. They have milk bone treats for pets staying at the hotel. I would suggest that the hotel keep some poo poo bags at the desk.

I had forgotten some and they did not have any at the desk.

The bags can be bought at any pet shop (ex. Woof Shop, Calle 61 Este) and are usually biodegradable.

Gym/Spa- The gym is PHENOMENAL. Like seriously, it is top notch. I haven’t yet had a treatment at the spa, but I took a tour and it too looks incredible and it is absolutely a beautiful space.

Why You Should NOT Book W Panama Hotel

$100 fee (non-refundable) for 6lb dog. Coffee maker didn’t work. Not soundproof. Weird fragrance pumped throughout the place.
