Panama is a well-known country and holds a unique place in American history due to the iconic Panama Canal, built in 1914. However the fun doesn’t stop with the vibrant capital, Panama City – make sure to check out the highlands of Boquete and finish out by island hopping through Bocas del Toro!
Panama City is worth a stop, if nothing else to see the Panama Canal and accompanying museum. Ride bikes along the causeway for gorgeous harbor views, explore the reviving historic neighborhood of Casco Viejo, and stroll along the harbor admiring skyscrapers next to bright green grass parks and shining blue water.
Head out to the Boquete region to satisfy any adventuresome urges. Hike to various waterfalls, quad bike through the hills, and white water raft (great even for beginners). Visit coffee estates where you can roast, taste, and bring home your very own coffee!
While there are too many gorgeous beach areas in Panama to count, one of the most well-known is the island chain of Bocas del Toro. Take the time to get out of one of the far reaching islands for an intimate, remote experience, or stay closer to shore and visit well-known Red Frog Beach. Surfers should stay to the southern coast of Panama for epic swells and equally epic views!
