About Us

My name is Rafael and I am one of the leading local guides and co-founders of Layover Panama (Former R&E Panama). I was born and raised in Chiriqui Province, in the Ngäbe-Buglé, the largest and most populous of Panama's seven indigenous tribes.

After working for over 2 years for Royal Caribbean Cruise in Civitavecchia, Italy I decided to come back and share with my friends the beauty of Panama such as our history, biodiversity, wildlife, and a real local touch of the Panamanian culture.

Since 2014, I have recruited an amazing team of local certified guides, and professional drivers and established great relationships with Indigenous communities, boat owners, and other tour operators to offer you the best service possible in Panama. Without them would be impossible!

We are a certified Tour Operator under the Reluxus Tours Panama S.A. and follow all Panamanian local relations for safety and sustainable operation.

We focused on Private tours such as Panama Canal Tours, Embera Tribe & Eco Adventure, Monkey Island and more.
