Panama is a great, safe and easy destination for family vacations for several reasons. First, you have a boatload (no pun intended) of history in Panama City, including the popular bucket list item: the Panama Canal. Then there’s the fascinating local indigenous culture.
Mix in some lovely beaches and kid friendly hotels and resorts with modern amenities. The result? You have a Panama family vacation experience that is unlike anywhere else on earth. Whether its for a holiday break or “just because”, a good deal combining luxury with Panama’s prime locations, can be just the ticket.
Watch Grandma zip through the rainforest canopy, catch tuna with Dad, try on handmade indigenous bracelets with sister. Panama gives you much more than incredible photos, but priceless memories. We’re here to help you with the planning so you can make your way to Central America’s best golf course, favorite coffee farm and/or an island just for you and the family. How about a hotel that has something for everyone, where you can entertain the tots, relax with your spouse and at nighttime enjoy dinner and a show?
The idea of bringing your family to a foreign country can sometimes be overwhelming, but Panama is not actually as far away as it seems. With an extensive history as an international crossroads, Panama is comfortable not only for vacationing but also for a more permanent stay. Over 50,000 U.S. citizens made their home in Panama up until 1999. This has contributed to a U.S.-style infrastructure and international ambience. It’s not as “different” in Panama to be a foreigner as it can be in other countries that are outside of your homeland.
English is spoken as a second language, and even the U.S. dollar in Panama’s currency, contributing to low levels of inflation. Panama has the best medical services in Latin America, with English-speaking U.S.-trained doctors and dentists. WiFi and cell phone service are available in even the most remote of locations, and smart-phones are widely used. Above all, Panama is one of the most stable and safest countries in the region, with the lowest rates of crimes against tourists as well as a low crime rate in general.
Fusing a distinct and delightful Caribbean Latin culture with facts like these with “touches of home” makes your Panama family vacation all the more enjoyable. Bounce from exhilarating Panama City to the green treetops of Boquete to the depths of the Caribbean blue waters in Bocas. Or, island hop by day and enjoy a family BBQ in your own villa by night. With a bit of guidance from one of our travel consultants, you will be in the right direction so your whole family is pleased.
The right, tailor-made adventure for your young ones, preteens, parents and grandparents will leave everyone wanting more. Whether you are trying to accommodate a special diet, can’t decide between beach and jungle or just want to know how many days is “enough”, our experts can help you.
