In this 10 days 9 nights circuit, you will visit;

You will start by heading north to Colon using the one and only Panama railway train, a railway line connecting the Atlantic and Pacific oceans.

At the Miraflores Locks you will learn on how the Canal works and see large ships go throuth from one ocean to another.

Go walking on the Camino del Cruise in a tropical forest at the the Soberania National Park, one of Panama’s finest birding sites.

El Valle!  Come and discover this beautiful town high in the mountains of Panama, on the floor of one of the largest inhabited volcano crater. If your heart wants, hike the Piedra Pintada trail (India Dormida) in El Valle de Anton.

Relax on the beach in Santa Clara along the Pacific coast in Panama.  It’s several dozens of miles where you can choose to soak your feet, swim, or just enjoy the warmth at the edge of this majestic ocean.

Return to Panama and go the the Amador Causeway.  This 3.5 mile stretch is where you will have a sublime view of Panama City!  The Amador Causeway is lined with touristy restaurants, souvenir shops and jogging paths.

The San Blas archipelago, a paradise on earth.  With islands of postcard decor, turquoise and transparent water, white sand and the coconut trees on small islands with few houses.  There you will meet the Kunas, an Amerindian ethnic group with traditional practices.  The basis of household organization remains the matrilocal family.
