Details of Planning a Vacation Trip to Panama


August 3, 2016

The Panamas is a coastline of curvature where the Caribbean Sea crashes against the northern shores and the waves of the Pacific Ocean breaks along the southern coastline. It has an abundance of vibrant culture and natural beauty. The area has a rich colonial history, thick jungles, indigenous tribes, multinational city, iridescent coastline shores, lots of surfing and scuba diving opportunities, and breathtaking canal. This makes it one of the most well-liked vacation destinations.

The History
History has shown that this area has gone through epic battles as shown by the crumbling forts that still exist. If you love art, you would not be able to resist the opportunity to visit a native tribe in order to witness their ancient and unique arts and crafts. If you are a surfer, sailor, or scuba diver, you will definitely love discovering a reef, break, or bay that will exceed your expectations. If you love hiking or the outdoor wildlife, you may find yourself wandering to the tropical hills, which are heavily populated with friendly lizards and howler monkeys. You may not even want to return to the city after that. It is safe, then, to say Panama is a great place for adventure seekers.

The Outdoors
If your plans are to extensively explore the outdoors, you should definitely consider Boca Del Toro in Panama. The best time to go is during the middle of December to the middle of April. Surfing Bocas Del Toro is one way to find an excuse to go. Rainfall is less in the months of February, March, September, and October.

How Do You Get There?
There are airplanes that go directly to Panama. The closest airport to the city is Tocumen International Airport. It is the nucleus for Copa Airlines where direct flight is offered, but also connecting flights from many global cities. If you ask the locals, they may tell you that there are more vehicles in Panama City than people. Taxi operators provide easy access to various areas of Panama such as Bocas Del Toro. You will pay a flat fee to take a taxi. If you want to go beyond the city of Panama to explore its nooks and crannies, then you could rent a car. However, it is better to hire a driver, if you are going to the coastal areas.

The Water Taxi
Bocas Del Toro resorts are easily accessed by car or boat. You could also consider taking a water taxi to your destination where you will be able to enjoy a spectacular view. Men on bikes may rush up to you asking if you needed help with your luggage. Some may want to act as a guide to the water taxis. They may ask for a fee of $3 bucks to do so. This may seem intimidating at first, but most of them are only there to help. The Jampan water taxi is the better mode of transportation to Garden of Eden, which is one of the most popular Bocas Del Toro hotels in the area. All rooms at this resort are clean and comfortable, offering balcony views of the blue waters.

You will certainly enjoy staying at the Garden of Eden in Bocas Del Toro, if you want to have an unforgettable experience. Call Dave or Su at 507 6967-0187 for an estimated price and to discuss accommodations and to learn more details of how to get there.
