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!

Get in Touch

Esplanade arranged a wonderful New Zealand adventure for my wife and myself in 2020…just a couple of months prior to Covid shutting down the world! During this difficult time for the planet, the staff from Esplanade continued to reach out to us on how they recommended we deal with our travel plans and the expenditures we had previously committed to. They continuously updated our travel plans and made all the necessary adjustments to our itineraries. Almost three years to the day later, we were able to enjoy our New Zealand trip. The reservations, excursions, and overall recommendations made by Esplanade were fantastic! We commented several times that their commitment to the smallest of details was very apparent. Our flights were perfectly spaced, our drivers all showed up on time, and our accommodations and excursions were beyond expectations. We now plan on trusting Esplanade for our future travels to Africa and Europe. We cannot recommend them more.
