About Panama

Top Ten Things to do in and around Panama City

1.  Visit the Panama Canal.  One of the Seven Wonders of the World, go to Miraflores Locks to watch the huge cargo ships pass in and out just a stone´s throw away.

2.  Shop at Weil Art. Both an upscale gallery and Panama's only art auction house, you can also find funky jewelry, old books, canal memorabilia, maps, coins, sheet music and historic documents from his Weil Art premises on Calle 48 in Bella Vista.

3.  Tour Panama Viejo.  As the original Panama City, Panama Viejo was the gateway city for the Spanish conquest of Latin America, once a thriving city of 10,000. Today's extensive ruins are the result of battles with the English pirate Henry Morgan in 1671.

4.  Eat at many of the fine restaurants.  A few of our favorites include S´cena locate in Casco Viejo located opposite the old Union Club (after dinner you can head downstairs to enjoy a drink or two in the street level jazz, salsa and piano bar, Platea), Café Ego and Narciso on Plaza Bolivar, Limoncillo located just off Calle Uruguay in Bella Vista, and Bistro 10 located on the ground floor of Hotel Deville Bertriz Meranda Street just of Calle 50. Trend setting meals prepared for the jet setters of Panama

5.  Enjoy ice cream at GranClement Ice Cream Parlor. Located just a couple of blocks from Cathedral Plaza on Avenida Central, this gourmet ice-cream eatery is a must stop for many when they visit Casco Antiguo. Traditional recipes for their "Italian-style" ice cream mean they are rich and creamy and intense with flavor. A little touch of heaven awaits you!

6.  Ferry to Taboga Island.  Enjoy the view of Panama City from the ferry and be sure to explore the remains of an old steamship left there from the late 1800s.

7.  Lunch on the Amador Causeway. The one mile causeway was created by the Americans by connecting four small islands by using rocks excavated from the Panama Canal and served as a breakwater to the Pacific Coast entrance to the Panama Canal.

8.  Stay a night at Gamboa Rainforest Resort.  Enjoy these facilities developed in conjunction with the Smithsonian Institute of Tropical Research, ride the aerial tram through the rainforest canopy, and enjoy the spectacular views of the Chagres River.  Just an hour and a half from Panama City in the Panama Canal Rainforest.   

9.  Spend a day at Summit Gardens.  Located just 30 minutes from downtown Panama City in the former Canal Zone, this tropical zoo filled with exotic animals and birds unique to Panama´s jungles is set in a magnificent 80 year old botanical garden and offers a rare view of the almost extinct Harpy Eagle, the world´s largest and most powerful bird of prey.

10.  Tee off at Summit Golf Club.  Just thirty minutes from downtown Panama City, Summit Golf Club offers a tropical wonderland championship course designed by Jeffrey Myers with a par 72, 18 hole, Summit international tournaments and has the only computerized GPS system in Central America, 100 golf carts, outstanding practice facilities and a beautiful club house with a restaurant.

Top Ten Things to do on the Beach

1.  Jet ski around Farallon Island.  On a calm day, rent some jet skis and ask the guide to take you around Farallon Island where you´ll see scores of nesting pelicans and the cross posted by Noriega.

2.  Spend the day at El Valle.  Do an easy hike to the waterfall for a nice swim, visit El Nispero Zoo, stop at the market for souvenirs, eat lunch or enjoy the spa at Lourdes (make reservations), enjoy some fine Panamanian coffee at the local café and then hit some of the local artisan stops. 

3.  Visit the market in Penonome.  Depending on the season, you can buy the sweetest, juiciest pineapple and watermelon for less than $1.00 each without leaving your car.

4.  Collect seashells at low tide.  On a daily basis the most beautiful shells are left at low tide along these beaches.

5.  Visit Omar Torrijos National Park in El Cope.  Unless you´re really adventurous, hire a guide.  There are 3 waterfalls to hike to and depending on weather and your car (you need a 4 wheel drive or a desire to do some heavy uphill hiking), you can drive to the very top and view both the Pacific and Carribbean coasts.

6.  Take an early morning horseback ride along the beach.  Be sure it´s an early ride because the sun gets HOT after 11 a.m.

7.  Watch the fishermen pull in their nets.  If you miss this, check out the fish markets in Gorgona or Farallon.  If you hit it at the right time, you can buy jumbo shrimp for less than $5.50 per pound but they sell out quickly!

8.  Take advantage of the inexpensive spa services in Coronado.  Right next to the Rey Supermarket, there´s a spa where you can get a manicure and pedicure for less than $15.00.

9.  Catch a wave at Rio Mar.  This is one of the hottest local spots for surfing along this area.

10. Eat delicious paella at Camisones Restaurant.  Start your dinner with a delicious glass of sangria.  (In our case we start with a jar.)  If you don´t like paella, the fish, shrimp and lobster dishes are all well worth it!
