Signature Panama: Canal, wildlife and beach

10 days from £1679pp

Private Journey


Your first thoughts about Panama may envisage hats (actually from Ecuador); a large, strategic canal; a fallen dictator and maybe some refugees from justice. But that would be underestimating the unexpected charms and variety of this hilly Central American republic. This holiday addresses that: in addition to introducing you to the extraordinary history of a country linking oceans, spanning cultures and hosting pathways for smuggled gold, we take you to visit some of nature’s most fecund forests, laden with ebullient wildlife and luscious plants.

The capital city is one of the world’s most cosmopolitan, an eclectic mix of American, European and Asian influences forged by centuries of immigration, while the palm-defined, pearl white beaches are undeveloped. The Panamanian people, relaxed and welcoming, will ensure you have an enriching holiday.

For an even more comprehensive experience of what Panama has to offer the visitor, we recommend you take one or other of our extensions to this holiday, to San Blas, Contadora beach or  or the Azuero peninsula, Panama's cultural heartland.
