Essentials in Panama

Panama City: The capital has three distinct areas: the new one, the old one and the colonial one. The Panama Canal is a must and then check out the colonial buildings in the Casco Viejo. Panama Viejo was totally ransacked by pirates in the 1600s and was never really rebuilt afterwards.

Coiba National Park: You won’t be surprised once you arrive at this place that they call Coiba the “Galapagos of Central America.” This park is full of rare species on land and in the water, so bring your snorkeling gear!

Gulf of Chiriqui: This part of Panama has some of the best wale watching around. The nearest city is Bouquet and if you hope to see some whales, plan your trip between August and October for humpbacks. You can find hammerhead sharks and dolphins here year-round.
