Since 1999, EcoCircuitos Panama has been a company committed to the development of sustainable tourism by providing diverse options for responsible and low impact travel thought the Republic of Panama. It is a locally owned company that works on a grass roots level providing greener options for traveling.

EcoCircuitos founder Annie Young Jaén realized earlier than most Panamanian tour operators, that the sensitive natural and cultural destinations in the country would need to be approached with much care and understanding. “The core element in all our tours is to keep the environmental impacts to a minimum while at the same time maximizing the benefits to the local host communities. The customized tours and adventures are  designed to have a strong educational side: each traveler is accompanied by a local guide who is not only an expert on the nature and culture of the visited area, but also follows and teaches minimum-impact principles”.

EcoCircuitos aims to combine fun outdoor adventures, cultural exchanges and nature preservation to make an unforgettable vacation for their clients, all organized and lead by local talents.  “Maximizing the skills and opportunities of the local suppliers, guides and staff to grow together through tourism is one of the main goals for us”.

The EcoCircuitos staff is an inspirational group of people who are all committed to provide alternatives to conventional tourism in Panama. They truly care about their clients and make sure that each and every experience is unique and genuine, showing the true Panamanian culture and spirit. The team is passionate about sustainable travel and work continuously to improve not only their operations through best-practice learning but also those of their suppliers in the office and the field.

The company’s commitment is further visible in their key role in the founding of APTSO ( The Panamanian Association for sustainable tourism. EcoCircuitos hope that their permanent example of best practice will become a model and learning opportunity to other Panamanian companies to inspire a more sustainable and responsible development of Panama Tourism.
