The Best of Panama

From the mighty Panama Canal in the country's capital, to the tropical archipelago of Bocas del Toro, these are the places to visit on your trip to Panama.

Panama Canal

Located in Panama City and perhaps the single most important piece of global infrastructure, the Panama Canal sees 6% of all global trade pass through its waters. Opened in 1914, this 51km canal connects the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans. Before it opened, ships had to travel down and around Latin America - an additional 8,000 miles! No visit to Panama is complete without taking in this shining example of human engineering.

Panama City

There's more to Panama's capital than the canal. Panama City is the epicentre of the country, economically, politically and socially. A modern city, skyscrapers adorn the skyline and there are cultural hubs aplenty, including the Biomuseo, which charts Panama's natural heritage. The waterside promenade is also worth a visit, home to a range of markets, bars and restaurants.

Bocas del Toro

Bocas del Toro is located in the country's far north, near the border with Costa Rica. This island archipelago boasts stunning turquoise waters, lush rainforests, and vibrant coral reefs. It's a haven for nature enthusiasts and beach lovers alike. Whether you're into water sports or prefer to relax on pristine, secluded beaches, Bocas del Toro offers it all. The archipelago is also renowned for its rich biodiversity, making it a great destination for eco-tourism and wildlife enthusiasts.


Boquete, nestled in the picturesque highlands of Panama, is known as the "Land of Eternal Spring,". It offers a cool, mountainous climate that contrasts beautifully with the country's tropical lowlands. Visitors are drawn to Boquete for its breathtaking scenery, which includes lush coffee plantations, pristine rivers, and the towering Baru Volcano, the country's highest peak. Adventure-seekers can embark on thrilling activities such as hiking, zip-lining, and white-water rafting, while those in search of relaxation can enjoy the town's tranquil spas and world-renowned coffee culture.
