Are you planning the holidays already? If you’re not, this article might give you all the motivation you need to get started. And if you already are, the following reading might help you choose once and for all your next destination.

Panama is a beautiful country that in recent years has seen an exponential growth of its touristic industry, and with such beautiful landscape, the warmth of its people and the vibrancy of Panama City, why wouldn’t it? But if you’re going to Panama, and you’re still unsure of what you might find there, if it lives up to the hype or how different it is from other countries in the same region, this 4 minute reading will easily shed some light on the topic and answer at least a few of your questions.

When going to Panama, the first stop is, of course, Panama City, and it is important that you take the time to enjoy this South American metropolis to the fullest. Contrary to popular belief, not all capital cities in South America are half built cities with barely transitable roads. In fact, Panama City is as cosmopolitan as any other big city and it offers as many benefits as you would expect from a modern city in the first world, for the most part at least. Nevertheless, local folk events are rather common in Panama and if you’ll have the opportunity to enjoy them, seize it!

Like I mentioned, the people of Panama are incredibly kind and warmth. So if you find yourself wandering the streets of Panama without a fix course, asking a local for recommendations shouldn’t be a problem. However, you should be mindful and avoid staying out alone too late in the night but of course this is not a recommendation just for visiting Panama but for every other place in the world.

Aside from Panama City, Bocas del Toro is one of the most beautiful destinations in Panama. It is a small collection of islands to the North, and it’s the place where the beautiful Caribbean sea blue waters meet with the rainforest, which makes it a paradise for amateur scuba divers, casual tourists looking for a spot to chill out, and it’s a boat ride away from Red Frog Beach and other surrounding isles.

Some of the highlights of visiting Bocas are Starfish beach and Isla Bastimentos where you can bond with the locals at parties or snorkeling near to the Zapatilla Cayes. But beyond the paradisiac beaches and stunning rainforest trails Panama also has a captivating capital city, and its Casco Viejo Neighborhood is one of the main attractives.

Brick streets, houses with framed balconies, and picturesque squares give a European vibe to this historic district. Further it’s colonial era churches and monasteries make it a great destination for those who are fond of history and architecture, not to mention good food. Casco Viejo is where the best restaurants and bars are located. However, Panama City has a modern face too. One that is best represented by the Panama Canal.

Panama’s most renowned attraction is an interoceanic canal with over 80km length, and it can be admired from various spots in and around the city. The canal and its perks for commerce translate into Panama city’s malls and shops that offer great discounts on designer and global brands such as Zara, H&M and Nike. The area of El Dorado has plenty of restaurants, bars, shops and malls like Multicentro or MetroMall.
