From clear turquoise seas and cosmopolitan city to the coffee farms and cloud forests of Chiriquí, Panama can be as relaxed or as thrilling as you wish.
Panama is a fascinating combination of historic and modern. Staying in four star hotels in the city and a beautiful mountain lodge in the country, spend the week with us exploring Panama City, the Canal and more temperate Chiriquí province.
Activities include: visiting charming historical Casco Viejo, learning about the Canal at Miraflores Locks, experiencing the jungle with the native Embera tribe, hiking and exploring the beautiful, mountainous landscapes around the small town of Boquete, zip-lining over a forest full of century-old trees, waterfalls and abundant wildlife, visiting a working coffee plantation, super fun white water rafting, navigating massive ships and viewing the surrounding exotic rainforest on a boat ride on Gautan Lake.
Panama is the southernmost country of Central America, bordering Colombia to the southeast and Costa Rica to the northwest. It shares a coastline with the Caribbean Sea and the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. Because it bridges North and South America, Panama is often referred to as the “Crossroads of the Americas”. The 51 mile (82km) Panama Canal bisects the Isthmus of Panama and connects the Atlantic Ocean to the Pacific Ocean. This canal is one of the most important maritime shipping routes in the world. Panama has the unique distinction of having the sun rise over the Pacific Ocean and set over the Atlantic.
In the history of the countries of Latin America, Panama has served as a meeting point and has had its culture forged by various cultures and traditions that combined to create unique complexity and exotic environment. The country’s ethnic diversity is reflected in the traditional products found there, such as woodcarvings, ceremonial masks and pottery as well as in its distinctive architecture, cuisine and festivals
Panama’s dry weather is primarily defined by its two seasons: dry and wet. The rainy season typically lasts from May to December. The dry months are typically between January and April. While the seasons are defined as “rainy and dry”, the country does not experience rain or drought every day, depending on the year and the region
