Monday, May 30, 2011












Horseback riding, fishing, and visits to coffee plantations, are just part of the program of activities, being organized by Panamanian tourism companies.

Local growers and ranchers, along with tourism promoters, met last week in Antón, 100 kilometers west of the capital, including a visit to Hato Viejo Farm, to analyze growth opportunities.

The farm, which includes trails with 50 varieties of tropical palms, an organic orchard, a sugar mill, and riding stables, is currently building visitor accommodations.

Agro tourism has been growing steadily in Panama, whose government has a program to support these types of projects, said Angel Ponce, Director for Chiriqui province of Panama’s Tourism Authority.
