Home to an amazing variety of wildlife, including rarely-seen bird species, Lake Bayano is one of Panama's most fantastic treasures, but it is also one of Panama's least known areas: eastern Panama province. Despite being only an hour and a half's drive from Panama City, the great majority of Panamanians are as unfamiliar with Lake Bayano's beauty
Lake Bayano supplies Panama City and other areas with electricity. But one of its highligths are the caves, with mostly wide areas has a combination of dark and clear areas.
The Bayano caves were formed over time by an underground river that still flows today. The caves can be enjoyed almost year-round depending on the height of the river.
Its important to mention that we use only local motorized dugout or plastic fiber canoes, support locals and the conservation of the area.

A once in a lifetime experience!!! The tour with Mario to the caves at the Bayano Lake is a true adventure with unforgettable views. It rather felt like being on a trip with a friend than a guide. Mario is punctual, communicative, friendly and well prepared. We recommend this tour to everyone that is good by foot, adventurous and seeking something apart the usual tourist sights. Thanks again Mario and always save travels :)
