For a small country, Panama has a truly dazzling array of attractions: lush rainforest, a dynamic capital, evocative colonial ruins and blissful desert-island beaches, not to mention the world’s grandest canal. Whether you’re swimming with sharks off Isla Coiba or kicking back in the cocktail bars of Bocas, use our map of Panama to explore this exciting country.
Sample gourmet coffee in the scenic Chiriquí Highlands above David, Panama’s second city or live it up at one of the Azuero Peninsula’s fabulous festivals - you’ll find the festival calendar packed throughout the year. Panama’s coastline is stunning: hit the waves at surfing hotspot Santa Catalina or snorkel in the warm, clear seas of the Bocas del Toro. And of course, head to the depths of the Darién jungle and stay with an Emberà community to experience its wild, untamed beauty.
