Panama resorts highlight the diverse destinations across the isthmus by creating an environment that combines the hotel with a variety of recreational activities. Whether it be an oceanfront pool, full-service spa, nearby monkey tours or all-inclusive meals, resorts are your home away from home in vacation-perfect surroundings. With jungles, mountains and beaches, resort properties are as diverse as the landscape and people of Panama.

The main attraction of seaside resorts, in particular, is typically the beach. However, Panama has 1,500 miles (2,490 kilometers) of coastline on the Atlantic, Pacific and Caribbean waters, not to mention rivers, making waterfront resorts incredibly diverse depending on their location.

The Westin Playa Bonita, right outside Panama City along the water’s edge, provides the perfect view of ships lining up in the distance to continue their journey through the Panama Canal from all of their rooms. You can tour Panama City and surrounding areas by day, and come back to relax in the spa, dine oceanfront and enjoy the resort’s activities.

90 minutes away from Panama City on the Pacific Ocean, you will find some of Panama’s most popular oceanfront resorts, including the renowned JW Marriott. This hotel provides all the luxuries of fine dining, spas, golf, activities for the kids, and more but also have long stretches of uninhabited beach in front of its many pools. Aptly termed a “beachfront resort”, these types of resorts are perfect for ordering a drink while on the sand after you spend the morning with an in-house kayaking or windsurfing lesson. If your type of vacation is to enjoy the city-center in a boutique hotel, and then move beachside to completely immerse yourself in the resort’s many amenities (without plans to leave), then this would be the place for you.

There are a variety of handful of mid-size hotels and larger, all-inclusive resorts throughout Panama. If you need guidance about which of these Panama resorts might be right for you, call us for advice toll free: 1-800-237-3237.
