No matter what type of excursion you are looking for, chances are you will find it in this diverse and vibrant country. Bordered by two oceans, with over 2500 surrounding islands, there is no shortage of sun and sand in this tropical paradise. Whether you are a surf enthusiast, a scuba diver, deep-sea angler, or simply in search of a little R & R, Panama has hundreds of beaches of all kinds.
If adrenaline is what you crave, there are plenty of extreme adventures to be found. Over 25 percent of the country is covered in lush, tropical forests, including one of the world's largest primary rainforests. Intrepid explorers travel from far and wide to scout Panama's infamous Darién jungle. Considered to be one of Earth's last unexplored frontiers, mystery-steeped adventures await all who dare to trek its paths. See rare species of wildlife, explore the gold mining trail, marvel at pristine black sand beaches and discover the indigenous people who call the jungle home. Do you dare to explore this final frontier?
Believe it or not, this mysterious land of adventure can also be a great place for a family getaway. While we don't recommend visiting the jungles of the Darién with grandma and the kids, a trip to the world's most famous canal offers all kinds of activities and adventures suitable for all ages. There's much more to the canal region that just a wonder of modern engineering. Within minutes of the canal are thousands of acres of protected rainforest, with endless possibilities for family fun and exploration. And because the region is so popular with visitors, there is no reason to give up all your creature comforts. Around the canal there is no shortage of 5-star accommodations and every amenity you can think of. Thus, a trip to the Panama Canal offers families the best of both worlds, with a variety of activities to choose from right at your fingertips.
Perhaps Panama's biggest tourist attraction is not an attraction at all. Panama is literally host to hundreds of festivals and events each year. And what better way to experience the unique culture of a country than to attend one of the many festivals happening. Fortunately Panama hosts many festivals, so there's plenty of opportunity for visitors to experience the unique culture of this vibrant country every month of the year.
