What's included in this trip
Panama Unveiled SummaryAdd to Shortlist
Lively, modern and always on the move, San Jose makes for an intoxicating introduction to Latin America. Catch this capital's infectious vibe, wander its bustling streets and plazas, or take to the surrounding hillsides to experience nature at her finest.
Scan the lush forest foliage for Costa Rica's much-celebrated birdlife; toucans, kingfishers and the resplendent quetzal all nest in the woods of San Gerardo de Dota. Why not finish the day with some fly fishing from the banks of the Savegre River.
Drive on to the small coastal town of Golfito. Spend the days scouring Refugio Nacional Golfito for its unique flora and fauna or enjoying any number of the adventure activities on offer, before bedding down to the nocturnal stirrings of the surrounding forest.
Cross into the pristine natural beauty of Panama's rolling highlands. In addition to offering some spectacular hiking trails and river rafting opportunities, the region is famous for its coffee. Settling in with a steaming pot and a good book can be an equally pleasant way to lounge the day away.
Panama City is an intriguing capital of extremes. Brash and glitzy one minute, subdued and simple the next, this is one city that never fails to perplex. Get your bearings on a guided orientation tour and take in Panama Canal, one of mankind's most astounding engineering accomplishments. Fine dining options abound, so why not rally the group for a memorable final dinner.
