5 reasons to visit Panama

Visiting Panama in itself is a reward. Think about it, you have the Caribbean breeze, the beautiful beaches and the cuisine will knock you off of your feet. But, Traveling from Panama to Colombia is astounding. Here’s our top 5!

 

The country’s history: Panama is a small country with a long history. The narrow stretch of land which links North and South American was once underwater and waters were allowed to flow freely between the two oceans. The collision of two plates forced the land mass above the sea creating a land bridge between the two continents. Before the arrival of Spanish settlers, indigenous groups inhabited Panama. Seven tribes still remain throughout the country including the Cuevas and Cocole and Kuna in San Blas.

 

Panama Canal: One of the biggest landmarks of the Panama is the Panama Canal. The artificial waterway is one of the most strategic canals in the world. It reaches 77 kilometers and is a key passage for maritime trading vessels and any ships traveling between the Atlantic and Pacific oceans. The design and construction of the canal makes it worth a day trip. For those short on time, visit The Panama Canal Museum located in the heart of Panama City which displays pictures, videos and narratives to give you a full understanding of the history.

 

San Blas Islands: The San Blas Islands or ‘Kuna Yala’ is the pocket of paradise that most travelers are searching for when they come to the Caribbean. The white sand, crystal blue waters, balmy sea air and coconut palms make it postcard worthy and genuinely a pocket of paradise. The indigenous Kunas inhabit and self-govern the over 370 tropical islands off the northern coast of Panama. The most adventurous way to visit the islands is by boat. Sailboats leave from Colombiato Panama almost every day or you can go in the other direction. The trips give you 2-3 days cruising around to beautiful islands and is an experience not to forget.

 

The weather: If you like warm weather year round then come to Panama! It’s constant summer in most parts of the country. Like all tropical countries, there is a rainy season, which bring patches of rain and makes everything a tropical green but temps are still comfortable and you won’t need more than a t-shirt to keep warm.

 

Casco Viejo: Casco Viejo is the historical district of Panama City. It has also become Panama’s hippest neighborhood and home to many popular hostels, restaurants and funky bars/cafes. You will get a nostalgic feel as you stroll the narrow bricked streets and admire the pastel-colored Spanish architecture by day and in the nighttime the modern bars and clubs host the best mojitos in town.
