Situated on the isthmus between Central America and North America, Panama is perhaps best known for the Panama Canal.
But, did you know that Panama is also home to some amazing beaches?
Panama offers so many beach options and there is something for everyone. Prefer stunning white sandy beaches? Head to the Pacific Riviera just outside Panama City. If you’re looking for something at the other end of the scale, Cambutal Beach, Tonosi offers spectacular dark sand beaches set against a mountainous backdrop.
A visit to Panama wouldn’t be complete without taking in the Panama Canal. An engineering marvel, the canal stretches 80 kilometres from the Pacific Ocean to the Atlantic Ocean. Almost 15,000 vessels pass along the canal each year, generating significant revenue for the Panamanian economy.
Panama City is a thriving metropolis where East and West, old and new co-exist. Here you will find old world architecture nestled amongst shimmering glass skyscrapers. Panama City offers a vibrant atmosphere. Home to many races and cultures, Panama is a destination for the senses and perfect for those looking for an eclectic holiday experience. Party with the locals, dine at a fine restaurant, play Black Jack at one of the casinos – a night in Panama City is sure to be a highlight of your trip.
Nature lovers wont miss out in Panama – natural beauty abounds with a plethora of national parks, thermal wells and canyons. Perhaps most noteworthy is Parque Nacional Coiba which boasts Panama’s largest island, Isla de Coiba (503 square kilometres). Here, you will also find an amazing array of wildlife including dozens of species of dolphins and whales, crocodiles, turtles, snakes and birds. Offering the opportunity to reconnect with nature, it is a feast for the senses and the soul.
If you’re looking for an adrenaline rush, why not try a sky zipline canopy tour, tree trek or white water rafting? The options are endless.
