Panama Highlights

Panama City, Panama Canal and Colon

The capital of Panama is the fascinating, modern busy Panama City -  rich is history, culture and architecture. A visit to the Panama City includes exploring the Amador Causeway connecting the three beautiful islands of Pacific Ocean. The Colonial Quarter of the city is a fascinating place to explore as you walk amongst beautiful churches, cobble-stoned streets and colonial houses. A visit to the Cathedral, the golden Altar, Huertas Passway and French Plaza will help you learn more about the interesting history of the country.

Perhaps the most popular and important place to visit is the Panama Canal - a highlight of any Panama tour. The Casco Antiguo museum is a great place to learn the history of Panama and its culture. The museum at Miraflores Locks is also another great place if you want to learn more about the incredible technical achievement of building the canal. This is also a great place to watch the vessels transiting the canal from the sheltered terrace.

Colon is the third largest city and the capital of province. It is a Caribbean port for the Panama Canal. It is also the base for the largest trade free zone in the western hemisphere. Gatun Lake is an artificial lake and a uniquely preserved rain-forest ecosystem.  Barro Colorado Island in Gatun Lake is used by the Smithsonian for scientific study. Another great city to visit in the province is Portobelo where you can visit historic churches and Spanish fortresses to admire the beautiful architecture of Panama.

Boquete and Bocas del Toro

The Valley of Flowers, or Boquete, is located in Panama’s western highlands, close to the border of Costa Rica. It shares several mountain ranges, rain forests and incredible wildlife with Costa Rica. Tourists can hike around the area to get a chance to spot the Howler Monkey or Resplendent Quetzal in the rainforests and explore La Amistad National Park.

Bocas del Toro is an archipelago of small, white sand islands and is a very popular tourist location. It offers several pristine beaches for relaxation as well as a number of activities and adventures such as fishing, diving and snorkeling. With its fascinating wildlife, you will have the rare opportunity to observe several endangered birds, poison dart frog and fresh water turtles, it is a great place for observing wild animals and birds. Nature lovers will love Bastimentos National Marine Park.  Bocas is the ideal location for recreation, relaxation and adventure.

Coiba

The National Marine Park of Coiba is located in Panama’s Pacific West. It is the largest marine park located in Central America and a World Heritage Site and a fascinating place to see 800 different marine species that can be found in the waters. Coiba is also a great place for diving and is very well known for its high quality diving sites.

San Blas Islands

The San Blas Islands are pristine and picture perfect with coconut trees and white sand beaches. They are a largely untouched set of island; less visited and pristine. Around 60 islands in the archipelago are inhabited by the Kuna Indians. A visit to the San Blas Islands provides visitors with the unique opportunity to closely interact with the local indigenous Kuna Indians, visit some of the Kuna Villages and enjoy the serene and relaxing beaches and turquoise waters of the Island.
