Explore the wonders of tropical Panama on our new 9-day itinerary! Immerse in the culture of energetic Panama City; venture into the verdant rainforest, soar over the Panama Canal on an exciting helicopter tour. And spend four nights in paradise in the overwater villas of Bocas Bali on the Caribbean Sea.

Destination Overview

Begin your journey in vibrant Panama City, one of Latin America’s rising and most diverse cities. With luxury accommodations in the heart of Casco Viejo (Old Town), the lively pulse of Panama surrounds you. Explore the pirate-rich history of Old Town before continuing to the colorfully modern Frank Gehry Museum of Biodiversity. You’ll also sample Panama’s renowned coffee culture in a private session with an expert barista.

During your nine days, you’ll visit the Caribbean side of Panama, stopping for a private tour of the new canal locks to witness the marvel of 21st-century engineering. Delve into Panama’s storied past at San Lorenzo Fort, built to fend off pirates, before continuing to the hidden bunkers of Fort Sherman, the U.S. military defense station. Finally, board a helicopter for an exciting aerial tour of the canal, lush rainforests, and Panama City’s iconic skyline.

Spend a day exploring the region’s verdant interior rainforest before continuing to peaceful Bocas del Toro – one of Panama’s off-the-beaten-track hidden gems!

Settle into your very own luxury villa overlooking the azure waters of the Caribbean. If a bit of adventure suits you, experience electric off-road biking through the rainforest to lay eyes on the wild “locals,” spend time at a chocolate farm operated by the indigenous Ngobe community, meet the founder of the Monkey Island Foundation, an orphanage for native primates. And enjoy ample time to snorkel through colorful coral reefs, kayak, paddleboard, or relax at your villa or on one of Bocas’ white-sand beaches.

Like Panama, this is one itinerary that packs a punch of fun and adventure!
