You probably have heard about Panama thanks to its Canal, which is one of the major masterpieces of engineering of the 20th century. With a total area similar to the one of South Carolina or Austria, located on the stretch of land which connects North and South America, its immediate neighbors are Costa Rica (North) and Colombia (South) and the country boasts a total of 1500 miles (2490 kms) of coastlines between both the Caribbean Sea and the Pacific Ocean. Now and since the US government returned the Panama Canal to the country on Dec 1999, Panama has been discovered by world travelers and the tourism infrastructure is constantly growing, with new hotels and attractions opening each year.
In the capital, a cosmopolitan metropolis and hub of the Americas, a modern downtown with Miami-like skyscrapers and an old Quarter “Casco Antiguo” built by Spanish and then French are set next to each other, offering culture, history and architecture.
Experience the highlands of Boquete and Volcan with cloud forest, bird tours and rafting, hiking, wildlife, coffee farms tours; stay at the Chirriqui Coastal area in the Pacific, where new, luxury and unique lodges are set on private islands, for unparalleled experiences;
To picturesque little towns and native people, to a beautiful and extensive Caribbean coast with the white sand beach Islands of Bocas del Toro and new, small luxury hotels arise in the islands; San Blas and more... Just ask us and we will make it happen!
We can only encourage to visit this destination before it gets crowded in a few years.
