Panama is world-famous for its 48-mile canal that connects the Pacific Ocean with the Atlantic Ocean. Take a cruise along the canal or stay at nearby Occidental Panama City and get a feel for the diversity and excitement of city life.

This narrow land bridge is home to more species of birds and trees than the whole of North America, making it the perfect getaway for eco-travelers and wildlife enthusiasts. Visit Soberania National Park and stay at the Gamboa Rainforest Resort, located near the Chagres River, or head for the beaches. Playa Blanca and Playa Bonita both offer gorgeous beaches and upscale resorts for the ultimate relaxing vacation. We recommend the Westin Playa Bonita or Dreams Delight Playa Bonita.
