Adventure Holidays in Panama

Famous for its canal – worthy of exploration for a whole host of other reasons

Tours in Panama

Trade and shipping have seen millions of people pass through Panama but few have ventured far from its famous canal, leaving the beauty of the ocean, forest, mountain and jungle relatively undiscovered and untouched. Far-sighted adventure-travel enthusiasts will find plenty of virgin territory and countless opportunities for outstanding diving, walking and cycling on Panama holidays.

Culturally, the country is a real global village, international trade having brought many immigrants to its shores; our Panama tours take in Panama City itself, where the interesting blend of cultures is best appreciated.

Panama Adventure Holidays

Highlights of Panama trips

1. Tour the Panama Canal: It shifted entire landscapes, shaped millions of lives and literally moved mountains to link the Pacific with the Caribbean and create one of the most important shipping routes on the planet. The Panama Canal is probably the world’s most impressive feat of engineering, and absolutely one of the wonders of modern times.

2. Explore Panama City: Casco Antiguo and Casco Viejo in particular boast colourful buildings, flower-festooned balconies and crumbling colonial splendour. Find more of the same in San Felipe, where you’ll also take in picture-perfect views of the city skyline and the impressive Bridge of the Americas. In the centre you’ll appreciate the country's cultural diversity in the astonishing range of restaurants and nightlife, from Arabic nightclubs to Argentinian restaurants, from Japanese sushi bars to all-night salsa beats.

3. Dive deep at Bocas del Toro: Panama’s Caribbean coastline has everything you would wish for, from aquamarine sea and candy-coloured homes on stilts to the laid-back vibe that invites basking in the sun, sipping fresh coconut juice on white-sand beaches. And there’s plenty of opportunity for activty-holiday exploits too.
