Embera Indians in Panama watch tourist ride a native cayco dugout canoe – Best Places In The World To Retire – International LivingIn Coronado it’s easy to put your kayak in and you have lots of nice jutting peninsulas to go around. We have a cayuco, which is the boat that takes 3 or 4 people with the flat paddle and we have cayuco races.
 
Probably the most popular water sport gaining in popularity now would be the standup paddle boards;. In addition, people are now discovering the personal watercraft, which they use to ride around the in the ocean.

Kayaking is very common around Coronado Beach and Coronado Bay, Panama. You can rent your kayaking equipment directly from the Coronado Golf & Beach Resort.
 
Rafting, however, is very different.  The most popular places to go rafting in Panama are: 
  • Chagres River (located between Panama City and Colon, about 2 ½ to 3 hours from Coronado)
  • Chriqui (four hours or more away from Coronado, towards Boquete)
  • Mamoni (probably about 3 hours away)
  • Cocle (the closest to Coronado, in the same general area)
 The rafting in Panama is seasonal, depending on rainfall, El Niño, etc.  At the time I’m writing this (late June, 2014), the rivers don’t yet have the necessary volume of water for rafting.
