Panama Things to See and Do

The climate in generally Panama is hot and humid, but that shouldn't discourage you from exploring all of the things to do in Panama.

Things to do in Panama on the Caribbean Coast

The Panamanian Caribbean coast has access to some of the most beautiful beaches on the planet. The islands of Bocas del Toro and the San Blas Islands have so much natural beauty that you may find yourself needing nothing more than a beach towel. If you are looking for something more exciting, there is plenty of trails to hike, villages to explore and snorkeling to be done—make sure you leave enough time for sunbathing.

Things to do in Panama in the Highlands

If you need to cool off a bit, head for the Highlands. The beautiful and peaceful town of Boquete sees it’s share of backpackers and expats. There is a variety of lovely day hikes here including the more strenuous hike up Volcan Baru where, on a clear day, you can see both the Caribbean and Atlantic oceans from the summit.

Things to do in Panama City

The most famous attraction in Panama City is, of course, is the Panama Canal. The canal was built so that ships could pass from Atlantic to the Pacific and more then 750,000 vessels still use the route annually. Panama City also has a commemoration on January 9 called Martyrs' Day, a remembrance of the day in 1964 when fighting erupted between U.S. Military and Panamanians over the Panama Canal Zone.
