Every traveller dreams of sailing through the Panama Canal, wearing a hat of the same name and emulating Pierce Brosnan’s squint in The Tailor of Panama. But this much-storied country also boasts diverse wildlife, delightful weather, impressive landscapes, dazzling beaches and a rich cultural and historic past—making Panama the ideal hub for vacations and tourism down south.

The new Río Hato airport

Panama is becoming even more accessible! Air Transat now operates flights from Montreal to the new Río Hato airport, only 10 minutes (instead of 2.5 hours) from the Royal Decameron Golf Beach Resort & Villas Panama, and just steps from the beach.

The beaches of Panama 

Panamanian beaches leave nothing to be desired! With hundreds of kilometres of coastline on both the Caribbean Sea and the Pacific Ocean, you can choose a different vibe every day. Travel to Santa Clara or Farallón for a quiet day at the beach, or head to the Panama Islands for great swimming. The turquoise waters at the Las Perlas Archipelago are a must.

Shopping 

Tocumen International Airport has a great selection of duty-free shops, but Panama City, Panama’s capital, also has a variety of modern shopping centres to delight the seasoned shopper.

If you’re looking to sample local fruits and vegetables, or buy artisanal goods, a visit to the mercado is in order. The Mercado de Mariscos (seafood market) and Mercado Publico are notable attractions.

Panama Canal and nature 

The Panama Canal is one of the world’s greatest natural (and engineering) marvels. Outdoor enthusiasts can also delight in Panama’s diverse tropical flora and fauna, which includes anteaters, bats, armadillos, tapirs and other uncommon creatures.

The Panamanian table 

Since Panama is located between two continents, it has an interesting gastronomy built around tropical fruit and local herbs. Many dishes, such as bollos and torrejitas de maiz, are corn based.

Nightlife 

This country loves to dance! In Panama City, especially around the Amador Causeway, you can find many bars and restaurants buzzing with music and dancing. Gambling is legal in Panama, making the casino a popular attraction.
