Central America: Panama


I’ve been lucky to visit Panama twice, and did it ever change between 2013 and 2018!

The country is very diverse: Panama City has more skyscrapers than most cities in the world, you can hike in the cool mountains, and swim, scuba and snorkel on both the Caribbean (e.g. Bocas del Toro) and the Pacific sides (e.g.  Rio Hato, south of Panama City, and on Las Perlas, the Pearl Islands) of the country. Stories so far:

  1. I only have time to visit one place in Panama, would you recommend the Pacific or Atlantic coast?

    • Hi Rosemarie. Well, it all depends on what you like and what kind of trip you’re looking for. I preferred the Pearl Islands on the Pacific side — it was quieter and I like to swim right off the beach, which was easy there. In Bocas del Toro you need to take a bus or a water taxi to swim (the water right in Bocas town is pretty dirty). However, the restaurant choices in Bocas were great in comparison to the Pearl Islands….
      I’ve only been to two seasides in Panama, other than Panama City itself, so I’m sure there are plenty of other opinions!
