Best of Panama

Duration
9 Days
Prices From:
US$ 1,824

MODERATE | TAILOR-MADE: Experience the best of this Central American nation on this well-balanced tour. Start in Panama City where you’ll explore the colonial history before touring the Panama Canal. Then venture into the jungle for a couple nights at a rainforest resort before heading to the beach for another three nights of sunny relaxation.


This 9-day Panama vacation takes you to Panama City to explore the canals before staying at resorts in the jungle and at the beach. It features economy or superior accommodations depending on preference, active tours, and is a perfect combo of a nature adventure and beach stay.

Your journey begins in Panama City, the capital of the nation and the centre of its colonial history. A full-day city tour will take you through the ruins of Old Panama to chart the city’s history and learn about its current formation. You’ll climb Cathedral Tower to look out over the old town, visit the Old Panama Museum to see artifacts and exhibits on the country’s history, and tour Casco Viejo, the old city compound, to learn about the city’s history and failed past endeavours to construct the Panama Canal. In the afternoon, you’ll head to the Panama Canal itself, the marvel of modern engineering that connects the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans. You’ll tour the Miraflores Locks, enjoy a presentation from the Panama Canal Authority, and tour the town of Balboa before connecting back into town.

From Panama City, connect 30min away to nearby Gamboa and Gamboa Rainforest Resort, which offers beautiful accommodations and easy access to the surrounding nature. Spend a full day at leisure taking advantage of the resort amenities and the many available activity options. Lounge in the luxury pool, relax with a massage in the spa, or head on an eco-adventure into the jungle, including a water tour along Gatun Lake or a wildlife trek into Soberania National Park to see sloths and monkeys. After exploring the jungle, connect to Santa Clara and Sheraton Bijao Beach, an all-inclusive beachfront resort overlooking the Pacific Ocean. You’ll have two full days at leisure to relax in your guest room with beautiful views of the Pacific or the Panamanian mountains and follow your fancy. Cool off in the outdoor swimming pool before dining on delicious cuisine in one of the three restaurants. Tee up on the nine-hole golf course or spend your days swimming through the warm waters of the Pacific and shopping in the nearby centres.

At the end of your stay in Santa Clara, you’ll connect back to Panama City for one more night before returning home.
