Panama Holidays & Vacations
Panama is the perfect choice for your vacation if you want to be immersed in the beauty of nature. The country’s name, translated from an indigenous language, means “abundance of fishes, butterflies and trees”; an apt description for Panama. There are an incredible number of animals living in Panama: sloths, monkeys, toucans, iguanas, rainbow-hued frogs, and multicoloured birds. With a local naturalist guide, you will spot these often elusive creatures in Panama’s rainforests. Adventure activities in Panama are very popular too. The options are endless: jungle trekking, hiking, canopying, river rafting, rock climbing, kayaking, mountain biking, horseback riding, and many more. If you’d prefer an ocean adventure, there are surfing, snorkelling, deep-sea fishing, and diving sites to explore.
Soak up the local culture and immerse yourself in nature
If your ideal vacation includes fine dining, a bit of shopping, and soaking in the local culture, you’re in luck! Our local travel agency in Panama will be your guide as you explore Panama City. Panama City offers great boutiques, little art galleries, events, and cultural festivals such as the annual Jazz Festival in January. You can also opt for a visit to “Casco Antiguo” (a UNESCO World Heritage Site) as part of your stay in Panama City. This area offers beautiful colonial architecture, historic ruins, and some of the best gastronomic experiences and nightlife in the country.
If you’re after even more historic architecture, consider the ruins of Spanish forts on the Caribbean coast of the city, and “Panama La Vieja”- the old city’s ruins. Not all of Panama City’s architecture is ancient, of course – there are also many modern skyscrapers and the famous Panama Canal. A quick visit to this feat of modern engineering will show you how the building of the canal influenced Panama’s cultural diversity.
The greatest beauty of any country is always found in its people. While visiting Panama, take time to learn about the country’s seven indigenous groups (including the Embera, Guna, Ngöbe-Buglé, and Wounaan). Our local travel agency in Panama can bring you into these communities, where the people still live by the customs of their ancestors. We work with local communities to encourage cultural exchange, stimulation of the local economy, and environmental protection through offering travellers authentic cultural experiences. We recommend the breathtaking waterfalls in the region of Veraguas, and the wilderness beaches in Península de Azuero. Beyond waterfalls and beaches, you can visit the charming mountains in the region of Chiriquí, where world-famous coffee is grown. Further adding to the diversity of it’s landscapes, Panama also boasts mangrove swamps, and even a desert in Sarigua, Azuero!
