Panama

Panama is more than a hat. Or a cigar. Or a canal. It’s a surprising blend of glistening water, glittering skyscrapers, spectacular geography, and modern amenities, all of which work together to form a destination with appeal to the most discerning travel groups. Your attendees will appreciate Panama’s lively variety and activities. Water enthusiasts will enjoy boat trips to nearby islands, sportfishing, and surfing. Landlubbers may prefer to explore the mountains and trek in the rainforest to see the flora and fauna, including sloths and monkeys.

Key Locations

  • Panama City
  • Panama Canal
  • Casco Viejo
  • Gamboa & Monkey Island
Culture seekers will enjoy visits to indigenous communities and Casco Antiguo, the old city, a World Heritage site. If golf is the focus of your trip, look no further than Panama! Its courses have been designed by the greats, including Jack Nicklaus, Jeff Meyers, Randall Thompson, and more. History buffs will appreciate Panama City’s many monuments and museums that explore its storied history dating back to 1515 when it became the Spanish shipping port for Peruvian gold and silver to Europe.
The Panama Canal, which unites the Atlantic and Pacific oceans, offers several viewing platforms and museums that explain how it was built and expanded. The gastronomy of Panama reflects its melting pot of cultures. Here you’ll find some of the best cuisine in Central America where you can enjoy local favorites like empanadas, fresh sea bass, and sancocho (a chicken soup that’s said to be a miracle hangover cure)
or feast on exotic Far Eastern dishes and European specialities. Modern Panama City is dynamic and culturally diverse. Boasting the first metro system in Central America, it’s possible to cross the city with ease without battling the traffic. Nearby Casco Viejo, first settled in 1673, has become an artsy neighborhood full of shops, galleries, boutiques, restaurants, and a bustling nightlife.
