What to bring

In Panama City the people are very well dressed and take pride in their appearance. In the rural areas and because of the relatively large fluctuations in temperature it is always a good idea to have long sleeves and even a jacket for the cooler spots. Long sleeves are also comfortable at night as they will protect you from mosquitoes. You will want light clothing such as cotton tee shirts as well, as the temperatures can be quite hot. Be sure to bring a good pair of shoes for any excursions as open-toed shoes are not recommended. Also, be sure to bring a pair of beach sandals and light shoes for when it is much hotter out. And bring an umbrella regardless of whether it is the wet or dry season.

Day 02: Pearl Islands

You will be transferred to the domestic airport, where you will take a 20 minutes flight to the pristine San Jose Island, part of the Pearl Islands Archipelago. A representative of the hotel will pick you up at the airstrip and take you to your secluded luxury resort, just a few steps away from the white sand beaches. From your spacious balcony or from the restaurant you will enjoy the stunning ocean view.

The Pearl Islands are an archipelago located just 90 kilometers southeast of Panama City in the middle of the Gulf of Panama. An abundant quantity of white, black and golden beaches and coves surround the lush and green islands embedded between the temperate and calm turquoise waters of the Pacific Ocean. Many fresh water rivers and streams flow into the ocean creating a food source for many species of fish. This provides excellent opportunities for exciting inshore fishing what makes the archipelago a paradise for fishermen and divers. Also the land species are really abundant: big populations of wild pigs, deer, iguanas, agoutis, parrots and giant pigeons as well as about 100 other species of birds are located on the islands. In pre-Columbian times, the Pearl Islands were ruled by an Indian King whose main occupation was pearl-diving. Pearls were then used as ornaments and to trade.

Day 04: Half Day City Panama City & Miraflores Locks Tour

In the morning you will be transferred back to the airstrip where you will take your flight back to the capital. An English speaking guide will pick you up at the domestic airport and take you on a tour to Panama City and the Miraflores Locks. You will start the tour with a 30 minutes drive to Miraflores to see the huge vessels passing the Panama Canal. The busiest hours are between 09:00 and 11:00, so you will be able to see many ships getting lifted or lowered 16 meters in two distinct steps. You will enjoy the view on the Locks from a sheltered terrace and listen to the explanations of your guide. To complete the visit of the Canal you will visit the Museum and Visitor Center at Miraflores which gives you a good idea on the construction of the Canal – a masterpiece of engineering. You will also learn about the history of the canal and its significance for Panama and the entire world trade as well as on the current expansion project.

 

After the visit to the Canal you will continue with your guide to the Amador Causeway, a road that connects three Islands in the Pacific Ocean and offers magnificent views on the Canal on one side and on the skyline of Panama City on the other side. The tour continues to the Casco Viejo, Panama City’s colonial quarter. At the Casco Viejo you feel set back in time as you admire the lovely colonial houses, the narrow roads and the impressive churches. While visiting the highlights of this colonial district – the Cathedral, the golden Altar, French Plaza and the Huertas Passway – you will sure get an idea on Panama’s long and interesting history.
