This Darwins were exposed by a photo of them in Panama
The aunt of canoe fraudster John Darwin has criticised a holiday firm over plans to take British tourists to places he visited in Central America.
The 57-year-old and his wife Anne, 56, were jailed after John Darwin faked his own death in a canoe accident in 2002. They planned a new life in Panama.
Journey Latin America's week-long tour takes in Panama City and Lake Gatun, where the pair planned a canoe school.
Margaret Burns, 80, from County Durham, described the tour plan as "mad".
London-based Journey Latin America said it saw an opportunity to use the Darwin case to "make people aware" that Panama was a wonderful place.
It plans to charge people upwards of £1,400 for the holiday.
Marketing executive Laura Forsyth said: "It has been reported in the media that the Darwins visited Panama City and Gatun Lake, where they hoped to make a home and start up a canoe business.
"Panama City and Gatun Lake are very popular places to visit for tourists visiting Panama. Journey Latin America thought it would be a bit tongue-in-cheek to create an itinerary based on the places that the Darwins visited.
"After all, Panama is a beautiful country boasting tropical forests, palm fringed beaches and colonial towns. We saw an opportunity to make people aware that Panama is a wonderful place to visit."
But John Darwin's aunt Margaret Burns, from Blackhall near Peterlee, said: "I think the whole idea is mad.
"It will probably go down a bomb, but I don't know why some people are so stupid.
"Why would anyone want to see a grotty flat in Panama City and some undeveloped jungle in the middle of nowhere. It's sad.
"It's a pity people don't have anything better to do with their time."
The Darwins, from Seaton Carew, near Hartlepool, claimed £250,000 in insurance and pension payouts after John Darwin faked his death.
The fraud was exposed after a 2006 photo of them with an estate agent in Panama City appeared on the internet.
