With three destinations in just over a week, this itinerary really packs a punch. Begin by wandering the cobbled streets of Panama City and swing by the famous canal.

Days 1-3 – The canal and cobblestones of Panama City

Panama City is allegedly the most cosmopolitan in Central America. The ethnic diversity has given rise to a wide array of restaurants for you to choose from; Panamanian-style ceviche, chicken kebabs, bluefin tuna sushi or tikka masala! During your stay you’ll visit the famous Panama Canal and let a local guide introduce you to the city; a world of historic buildings and cobbled streets.

Days 3-5 – Coffee beans in the countryside

In the middle of a lush valley, wedged between towering volcanoes, is your home for the next few days, Boquete. Surrounded by exotic flowers, plants and birds you can enjoy the peace and quiet of your surroundings. The humid climate makes this the perfect place for growing coffee. You’ll experience the whole process from bean to cup while visiting a local coffee plantation.

Days 5-8 – Panama island getaway

When you arrive at the dock in Bocas del Toro you’ll make your own way to your cosy hotel on Isla Colon. There’s nothing planned during your time here so you can do as you please. Walk along the beach, try some snorkelling, mountain bike or trek inland among the mangrove forests, creeks and rivers. Alternatively, just laze on the beach and soak up the sunshine. As your trip draws to a close we’ll transfer you to the airport on the island, roughly 5 minutes drive, where you’ll catch a short 1 hour flight back to Panama City in time to connect onto your international flight home.
