The Panama Bucket List

Best known for its landmark canal, Panama will wow you with superlatives. This narrow bridge of land linking North and South America is home to lush rainforests and mountain cloud forests and 3,500 miles of Pacific and Caribbean coastline, as well as more than 1,500 islands. It’s a cocktail of ecological wonders, rich history and a city rivaling Miami in fine dining, culture and nightlife.

Can’t decide? Don’t worry, you won’t have to. Given the country’s size, it’s possible to plan a relatively short trip that includes all our bucket list items.
