Agents and travelers from the capital city visited several agricultural farms in Herrera Province where they participated in horseback rides, cart rides and experienced the many opportunities afforded to visitors of this region.
Hoteliers and travel agents were thrilled with the route. They visited three estates in OCU District, two in Parita and another two in Chitre, where they experienced fields of exotic fruits being farmed, a beautiful Lake where tourists can stroll, and multitudes of boating and water sports.
The attractions on the farms include many rural activities every day, for example: manual milking, honey production, and the harvesting of exotic fruits like guavas, cherry, banana, papaya and many others that are normally produced and exported by national and international companies.
"What we want is to make contact, first, with the environment that develops the estates and its attractions, and with both hoteliers and tour operators who will promote the region and make it known to tourists that there are options like these agro-tour farms in Panama," explained Ricardo Correa, director of the Ministry of Agricultural Development (MIDA) and Regent of the Agro-Tour Project Institution.
Furthermore, it was not only the invited guests who were fascinated by their visits to the farms, but also many locals, who admired the attractions as well.
