Panama City can be fun, but nothing compares to Panama’s wonderful countryside.

Escape from the hustle and bustle of city life and submerge yourself in the tranquillity of the breathtaking Panama scenery as you explore the lush mountains filled with exotic vegetation before relaxing on the Caribbean coast.

Land and leave the city immediately for the serene quiet of El Valle de Anton, where you stay at the gorgeous Hotel Los Mandarinos. A perfect retreat in the sanctuary of the mountains with thermal spas and rolling gardens perfect to release the stress and tension of everyday life.

Make the most of the cross country ground transfer with 2 brief stops – the first in the iconic Casco Viejo (Panama’s Old Town) where you’ll enjoy a sumptuous lunch before heading to the Miraflores Locks to see the amazing engineering feat that is the Panama Canal.

Then it’s straight to the beach for the final 3 nights at the wonderfully unique Caribbean resort El Otro Lado nestled in the bay of Portobelo. Explore the local beaches and take time out away from everything to soothe your soul in this tranquil environment that mixes tradition, elegance, and nature.

A ground transfer back to Tocumen International Airport completes your stay in style and ease as you leave this beautiful country with memories that will last a lifetime!

  • Day 6: Caribbean Pace

    Start the day with a gentle guided hike to explore the ruins of the historic Spanish fort located just behind the resort, then head back to chill poolside for the remainder of the day.
