When to Go

November - August

Revel in raw, natural beauty

The awe-inspiring landscapes of Panama are home to some of the most incredible creatures in the world – jaguars and pumas, manatees, orcas and humpback whales, as well as toucans, sea turtles, quetzals, dolphins and monkeys! The opportunity to watch these animals in their natural environment is a memory that will not easily fade. After a brief exploration of Panama City and its historic Casco Viejo, set out into the wild to discover the cloud forests of Boquete. Hike alpine trails surrounded by mountains and spot rare bird species, before heading to the nature mecca of Panama, the tiny uninhabited Isla de Coiba on the Pacific, surrounded by one of the largest coral reefs on the Pacific side of the Americas. This is Panama as nature intended.
