Review of André Goatham, owner and founder of GAPA TRAVEL:
The story begins in 1993 when a Swiss friend of mine who was studying in the U.S. and I traveled to Panama via Florida. We liked the country, the people and the beautiful weather so much so that a year later we came back for two weeks .
In 1996 I was back in Panama for two weeks and in 1999 I decided to settle at Lake Changuinola in the middle of a Chiquita banana plantation.
It was clear to me that here was where I wanted to emigrate and I wanted to start my own business.
After one year of looking at all the possibilities and options me and my Panamanian wife decided to open this agency and to increase awareness of this wonderful country internationally.
In 2001 GAPA TRAVEL was founded.
Today some 17 years later, I do not regret a single decision. Panama has become touristically known and the infrastructure has been greatly improved. The country has huge tourism potential and this will make working in this field very interesting in the future.
GAPA TRAVEL is well positioned and we have put together an amazing team.
They deserve a big thank you for their tireless efforts.
