Chelsey Perron

Chelsey is Panama’s top Travel Consultant, and for good reason! Chelsey has been living and working in Latin America for 7 years with her partner and is seriously passionate about good food and healthy eating. Panama stole Chelsey’s heart when she discovered the fantastic foodie scene, incredible snorkeling, and the super friendly locals. Now she prides herself on combining her first-hand knowledge of hidden gems and unique experiences to her customer’s individual travel styles and personalities.

Aidan Mullan

Aidan was born and raised in Ireland, but got fed up with the cold, rainy days and went searching for sunny climates – so started his love affair with Central America! A self-confessed ‘city boy’, Aidan was immediately blown away by the contrast of the dramatic, modern skyline and the traditional feel and architecture of the old town in Panama City. But as he discovered more, he realized Panama isn’t just the City and went to work exploring incredible wildlife, lost beaches, exciting adventures, indigenous tribes and much, much more!

Leigh Cloutier

Leigh has been creating custom made vacations in Panama for over 10 years and loves Panama City as a vibrant metropolis with the jewel of Casco Viejo (Panama’s old town) and the canal – a must see! Although Leigh also understands that Panama offers a lot more than the must-sees. With beaches and islands on both the Pacific and Caribbean, and with a range of boutique, luxury options all over, Panama offers quick access to both coasts, mountains to rival any in the world, and first-class accommodations all over the country!

Our History

We started our love affair with bespoke holidays in Costa Rica where we’re known as Costa Rican Vacations. After great success selling customized Costa Rica vacation packages, the partners decided to venture into Panama in 2004 where we continue to thrive.

In 2011 we also expanded to Nicaragua, now known through its own brand of Nicaragua Vacations. And we are proud to have recently added Guatemala, Belize, and Colombia to our ever-growing list of destinations.  As Central and South America continues to gain popularity as a travel destination, we are committed to providing quality package vacations in each location.

Namu Travel Group

Today, we are united as the Namu Travel Group, a leader in boutique vacations to Panama, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Guatemala, Belize, and Colombia. Namu umbrellas each of our specific brands, letting our clients know that we are delighted to plan their travels to each of our destinations or to create multi-country packages.
