Important Notice!

Due to the high volume of upcoming expeditions our high season is completely full between December of 2021 and June of 2022. We are unable to take any more bookings or schedule new multi-day treks outside the ones shown on our DATES page. On those treks with the label “SPACES AVAILABLE” we still have room for one or two more participants, but those are filling up fast.   Dates not shown on the calendar are likely full with private expeditions, overseas travel, or down time, so the dates that we don’t advertise are therefore unavailable as well. We hope to be open to new bookings for July of 2022.  The Hike & Paddle Chagres River and H & P Camino de Cruces day trips are relatively easy to organize and can happen at any time provided we’re not busy leading longer expeditions. In any case we encourage you to contact us several weeks in advance if you’re interested in these day trips. Many thanks!

Welcome to Jungle Treks!

In a nutshell we conduct trekking expeditions in the tropical jungle. But it's much more than just hiking in the rainforest. Through our treks we reveal our natural wonders and take the wilderness one step closer to the human heart. There's nothing quite like falling asleep in your hammock seduced by the sounds of this breathing planet whether these sounds come from jungle creatures, gurgling waterfalls or distant thunder storms. We believe this is a great way to rekindle our connection with the Earth. It's not the only way and it's not for everybody but it's the path we've chosen for ourselves. If you think you share our passion, just come and become part of our family. I suspect you'll have a captivating insight into a world of wonders.

Right from the moment I contacted Rick I received very helpful responses and he even organised a skype chat to go through the gear; I would definitely recommend you take his advice on everything he suggests to be well prepared, and also allocate sufficient time to get the right gear. The small things make such a difference towards a better experience.

Unforgettable jungle trek with Rick Morales

I cannot recommend this trek and Rick Morales, our guide, enough! Two friends and I went on this trek with little expectations (or experience) and literally all agreed this was the best trip any of us had ever been on. Rick was an exceptional guide. He was extremely organized, knowledgeable, experienced, thoughtful, and well prepared. He was also a lot of fun to be around…

Best trip of my life!

I joined a group of randoms lead by the instantly likable Rick Morales and his highly competent team to go trekking into the abyss of the darien jungle…The journey took us into natures extreme – steep hard contour, dense, yet ever changing jungle landscape and in some cases stretching a hundred metres above us and miles from civilization.
