Panama Bucket List
- Panama City – Panama City is one of Latin America’s premier commercial and financial hubs, ready to welcome you with fine dining, culture, and nightlife rivaling Miami.
- Casco Viejo – The up-and-coming historic quarter of Panama City is designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site. A contrast to the modern high rises of the city, Casco Viejo is an authentic, Spanish colonial neighborhood worth exploring.
- The Panama Canal — Named one of the Seven Wonders of the Modern World by the American Society of Civil Engineers, the man-made waterway connects the Atlantic and Pacific. Cruise beneath the Panama Canal’s Bridge of Americas and transit the Miraflores and Pedro Miguel Locks.
- The Rainforest – Panama has the most diversified wildlife of any country in Central America. Soberania National Park, only 15 miles from Panama City, offers hiking trails and an abundance of wildlife. Take an aerial tram and see the jungle from the treetops!

- 1,500 Islands – Panama is home to over 1,500 islands from uninhabited to popular travel destinations like Bocas del Toro. Many islands are still home to indigenous peoples of Panama. Explore their pristine beaches and rainforests or go whale watching, snorkeling or diving.
- El Valle de Anton – El Valle de Anton is located inside a crater of the inactive El Valle volcano. The valley town is full of natural and cultural attractions such as thermal pools, “square trees,” waterfalls, and a handicraft market.
- Cloud Forests – Explore cloud forest trails in Chiriquí. Warm air rises to meet the cold air of the mountains and forms a constant cloud-like atmosphere making for a unique ecosystem.
- Biodiversity Museum – Spend a morning in Panama City’s Biodiversity Museum, designed by renowned architect Frank Gehry. The brightly colored, modern structure of the museum and the surrounding park with panoramic views of the ocean and Panama Canal are just as striking as the exhibits inside.
- Eco-Adventure – Travelers looking for adventure, look no further! Ziplining, jungle treks, scuba diving, white water rafting, kayaking, rock climbing and more can all be done here!
- East meets West – Panama is the only country in the world where you can watch the sun rise on the Pacific and set on the Atlantic.
