My job consisted of taking them around to the local officials to do their paper work in order to transit the Panama Canal. I also helped them find parts and supplies, linehandling these boats true the Canal.
Years later, I stepped into another type of guiding, I started to drive a taxi and I usually offered my services at the local Hotels, taking the customers to places like Portobelo, San Lorenzo, Panama city and other places. I saw the necessity to Learn about these places, so I started buying and studying literature of the most visited sites in Panama, I made excursion almost all around the country. By the year 2000 with the arrival of cruise ships to the port of Colon 2000 and Cristobal, I started to offer my guiding services to the cruise ship passengers.
I combined my passion for touring with my permanent job at the Panama Canal. I born in Panama 49 years ago, I have lived all of my life in this bless country , married. I have six (6) kids (yes six!!!) four boys, two girls, love them all. I live in the country in a small town between Panama city and Colon.
A Recent Review of this guide
Excellent tour and guide. I had a relatively short stay in Panama and Clemente was very flexible throughout the entire time, making sure that I got to see (only) what I wanted. He is very experienced and can easily adjust the conversation/information about Panamanian history, economy, and politics to all levels. While driving through the forest, he stopped several times and pointed out monkeys and sloths that I would have never noticed on my own. The tour and guide were absolutely worth every penny.
