We are leaving a Panama canal cruise on April13th! I really want to just take a taxi to the rain forest(nearest one is??) and then go for a hike and take a taxi back. The man in red shirts do they take you for example to Tortugero national park if you wanted?? Do they use vans or cars? Thank you for that information, we are both in our 20's and we would really like to do a hike but not a tour.
