Best of Panama

Panama is still largely undiscovered by the discerning luxury traveler. For years this authentic destination in Central America has had little traction beyond the business traveler and the cruise ship visitor joining a packaged shore excursion to the Panama Canal.

HOWEVER, in Panama an exciting and genuine travel experience is never far away and it’s a country that deserves to be discovered!

Panama is culturally diverse, and has a remarkable diversity of flora and fauna in its accessible exotic tropical forests and coffee farms; stunning beaches on both coasts and on its 1500 (approximately) islands; colonial historical sites; and a modern and vibrant atmosphere with first world urban infrastructure.


We have a sample itinerary that offers incredible, diverse experiences to help you discover this destination. On a 10-day trip, you will escape to a tropical island paradise, visit Panama’s famous coffee region, slow down in a laid-back Caribbean fishing village, and see the magnificent Panama Canal – all of this in one trip and one country! Check out more about this awesome itinerary and country below.
