Abdiel L.


My name is Abdiel, Panamanian, married with 3 beautiful kids, Amanda, Aaliyah and Aaron.

I was born and raised in Panama City, Panama, and I've been in the tourism business for the last 13 years of my life. I'd started with the tourism working for a local company in the year 2004, and as an eco-tourism interpreter my job was guiding participants to the surroundings of a National Park and giving them as much information as possible about the natural trails. After that, I started doing tours all over the country, all kinds of tours.

I've spent some time working for an international company and that was a great help for the development of my language skills.

In the last 4 to 5 years, I've dedicated myself to learning in a deeper way the Panamanian culture, which is pretty diverse, and in which we could find everything from Chinese to Native indigenous. Working for the international company, I've learned a lot about customer service, which of course is a great asset in this kind of business.

I am oriented to provide a memorable experience when you come to our country. It's not just business, but being a good ambassador of this small but beautiful piece of land called Panama.

A Recent Review of this guide

A very pleasant, very knowledgeable guide. He was on time; the van was immaculate and comfortable and he varied the tour as we requested as we had only traversed the Panama Canal the previous day. Had lunch at a local restaurant of his choosing. Fitted a lot into one day and, as usual, we were very happy with Toursbylocals- and Abdiel.

I am not licensed to drive my vehicle into the cruise port, but I can meet you at the ramp and walk you to the car.
