panama holidays

Wedged between two oceans, compact Panama is the only place on Earth you can stand in one spot to watch the sun rise on the Pacific and set on the Atlantic.

You’d be forgiven for thinking a holiday to Panama is just Panama hats and the iconic Canal, but there is a lot more to this tiny nation than meets the eye. Indigenous tribes who’ve managed to maintain their culture, dense rainforests brimming with an incredible variety of wildlife and a proud cultural heritage define Panama beyond the Canal. A leader in the world of ecotourism, Panama protects more birds than the U.S. and Canada combined and with plenty of sensational eco-adventure lodges within its borders, there is a clear effort nationwide to protect the wild nature that attracts so many visitors every year. Surprisingly undeveloped beyond Panama City, there are over 10,000 plant species and nearly 1,000 bird species to be found outside the capital. Dare to be different and explore this incredible destination.
