Panama is the land of innovation and adventure, from cosmopolitan Panama City to the engineering marvel of the Panama Canal. But leave the bustling city behind and you'll find peaceful villages, indigenous islands, and secluded beaches within a few hours away.

Or head into the mountains and rainforest with its amazing biodiversity. There's world class fishing lodges on the Pacific coast and diving and snorkeling in the laid back Bocas del Toro archipelago.

Panama is amazing from coast to coast.

Wherever we go, we always have a beaten up guidebook, local phrasebook, and weatherproof map in our backpacks.
