Whilst Panama is perhaps most famous for its impressive man-made Panama Canal, the lesser known natural wonders found here might just be even more remarkable. With a stunning Caribbean coastline of white sand beaches, unspolit coral reefs, idyllic tropical islands and some of the most pristine rainforest in the world, Panama is a country of both outstanding natural beauty and a fascinating colonial history. The country's capital - Panama City, is where you'll find the Panama Canal and is also one of Central America's most cosmopolitan and energetic cities, with a vibrant nightlife, beautiful swathe of beach, wonderful old colonial architecture and gleaming skyscrapers.
Visit the tranquil Bocas del Toro Islands, where lush tropical rainforest meets beautiful deserted beaches. Then head to the cooler climes of Boquete - a charming mountain village on the eastern slopes of the Baru Volcano. This gorgeous region is renowned for its sweet oranges and coffee plantations and we offer plenty of exciting optional activities including world-class rafting facilities, mountain biking, rock climbing and rappelling. Our tours end in Panama City where you can choose to extend your stay and explore the sights.
