A Trip to Panama is a dream come true for many travelers and vacationers. While rarely visited in recent years as a short break across Central America, this upcoming year (in 2021) will have the opportunity to lend Panama closer scrutiny. And guess what? Panama is absolutely incredible!
While not entirely an island nation, Panama is a country that sitsuate itself between the Caribbean Sea and the Pacific Ocean. This small country is bordered on three sides by the Canal that connects the Atlantic and the Pacific. Panama’s coastlines feature white sandy beaches on three sides – with the eastern side of the island bordered by the Canal. Panama’s main cities are Colon, Quito and San Jose. There are also cities and towns on the other two sides of the canal that offer a wealth of attractions and activities for visitors interested in seeing the canal and shopping and sightseeing in the local markets and sights.
When booking a Trip to Panama, it is important to know what exactly we are looking for in terms of activities and destinations. For example, we are all familiar with trips to see the Panama Canal – where a tow-back boat travels under the canal in order to access luxury yachts and cruise liners – and trips to see the rainforest-covered coral reefs off the shores of Panama’s Pacific coast. We can also explore Panama’s wildlife in the Baga national park; visit the underground waterfalls at Tocantins; go rafting down the Guayati River or explore the Mayan ruins at Chichen Itza. We can also book trips to see the colorful birds that call Panama’s tropical forests. As well as plenty of sea and land destinations, we can plan a trip to see the majestic volcanoes of Volcan Baru and Maderas; tour the ancient capital city of Manzanillo and take a hot air balloon ride to see the sights and sounds of this urban jungle.
Once we have chosen the type of activities we want to do, we need to choose a destination. There are many interesting places to see in Panama, and travel to Panama City makes the most sense for those interested in visiting the historic center of the country. The city of Panama, located on the Pacific Coast, has plenty to offer both tourists interested in historical architecture and visitors who prefer to travel to the islands that make up the central area of Panama. There are a number of places to see in Panama City, including a walkway from the airport that leads directly to the Blue Bridge, which stretches across the Pacific Ocean and connects Panama City to San Jose, Costa Rica. A Panamanian tour of the Blue Bridge is the ideal way to learn about the history of the area as well as enjoy the beautiful sights of the bridges passing by.
For those interested in taking a more exotic route, travel to the southern peninsula of Panama and visit its vast array of rain forest. Some of the more popular destinations include Tambomachay, the World Heritage listed rainforest; the city of Nuqui; and Corcovado, a small fishing village. Travel guides that travel to the southern peninsula of Panama often include a trip to the rain forest in their itinerary. Those who wish to see the rainforest in its natural state should plan a trip to the region in the summer when the rain does not reach its high point.
An all inclusive trip to Panama offers an opportunity to travel to the most exotic of locations while paying low cost or no cost at all. Travelers to Panama often include activities such as snorkeling, zip lining, rafting and other exciting outdoor adventure activities. For those looking for more of a cultural experience, a trip to Panama City can provide some insight into the history of the area and provide a window into its present culture. All inclusive trips offer convenience and affordability, with many travelers discovering that a trip to Panama City, Panama offers a much more relaxed traveling experience. A Panaman vacation is a great choice for an all inclusive vacation that provides low cost, relaxation and entertainment.
