With archipelagos galore and over a third of the country encompassed by national parks and natural reserves, Panama is a thriving eco-tourism destination yet to be etched onto the gringo trail.
A visit here is a once-in-a-lifetime experience as you will be hosted by a Kuna family on their own private island, cooked 3 meals a day and be able to peek into the lives of this thriving community.
Panama’s highlands boast beautiful cloud forests, rain forests and world-class white water rafting.
From the mountain town of Boquete you can raft down class IV and V rapids or go hiking up to the country’s highest point on VolcanBaru at 3,475 meters.
You can find a custom-made Panama Hat shop, buy handmade souvenirs from Kuna Yala women, go dancing at a trendy club and taste gourmet Panamanian cuisine at a fusion restaurant.
