Go from nature to city life as you travel between San Jose and Panama City in Central America. Grab your refresco (smoothie) and start by exploring Costa Rican history and culture in San Jose. Wander through Plaza de la Cultura. Visit the Corcovado National Park and explore the 13 different ecosystems it contains including cloud forests and lagoons. Then make your way to Boquete, Panama's picturesque town surrounded by scenic mountains and orange groves. End in lively Panama City walking the cobblestone streets by day, and sharing a drink with locals in the bars by night.
