Panama Bucket List Travel Ideas

  • San Blas Islands

Why is Panama considered a top bucket list destination?

The famous Panama Canal, a man-made canal that connects the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans and is 80 km long. It is a true engineering marvel of the 20th century that is rightfully a bucket list site to see. However, Panama has so much more to offer! Idyllic Pearl Islands, among many others in the Caribbean waters off Panamanian shores, is an archipelago of more than 200 small islands offering amazing scenery. The small charming towns of Chiriqui Highlands make Panama not simply a bucket list destination but a popular place for retirement and long stay vacations for North Americans.

What are the top bucket list activities on a Panama vacation?

All globetrotters definitely should dedicate at least a half a day of their time to check out the Panama Canal and appreciate the importance of this engineering achievement and its importance for global commerce. Hopping on a tour of partial or even full Canal transit is definitely a bucket list activity that will allow visitors to experience the best of this marvel. Another unforgettable must-do activity is very simple - sunbathing at one of many gorgeous islands that this country has to offer; it can be either Bocas del Toro or San Blas or the famous Pearl Islands. They all offer different experiences but are similarly beautiful.
