Panama Tours & Holidays

Home to one of the world's most exceptional modern engineering marvels, Panama invokes historic nostalgia.

Yet there's more to this nation in Central America than the mighty Panama Canal, and travellers lucky enough to end up in Panama will be delightfully surprised by the uncrowded beaches, sensational surf breaks, magical rainforests and beautifully built towns. It's high time the world's wanderers added Panama to their adventure agendas.

Costa Rica & Panama Discovery

Nicole · Traveled October 2023
This trip is the perfect taste test for travelling Central America. It gives you a taste of each of the Central American countries with lots adventures available in each! Coiba National Marine Park and Bocas Del Toro were absolute highlights for me

Tour leader Abdiel is 5 stars and trip is 4 stars. Intrepid itself zero stars as I had to pay twice for the same flight (Panama City to Miami) booked by Intrepid and Intrepid could not care less about the $450 lost. Overall considering all, 1 star due to Intrepid.

Costa Rica & Panama Discovery

Gavin · Traveled August 2023
Panama is definitely worth exploring! Having travelled through the other 7 Central American countries with Intrepid, this itinerary continued to provide plenty of high quality variety and stimulation. Coiba Island (off Santa Catalina) and it's broad range of wildlife on land and in the sea was a particular highlight (and at least matched the equivalent sights in Caye Caulker, Belize).

Costa Rica & Panama Discovery

Patricia · Traveled July 2023
Excellent experience on Basix trip to Costa Rica/Panama. We are in our mid 50's and were nervous that it would be too basic but all the accommodation was more than adequate - a pleasant surprise! The Itinerary gave us a good sampling of Costa Rica and Panama. Our tour guide was professional & knowledgeable (Panamanian) getting us to our destinations safely, on time and well informed. The group we traveled with were awesome, various ages, from different parts of the world. Great value for a carefree, fun, and exciting adventure!
