Panama boasts miles of secluded beaches, family-friendly eco-lodges, mountains ensconced in rainforests, a wealth of cultural experiences, and of course, the historic Panama Canal. Panama’s appeal has only continued to grow, as more alluring hotels move in and word continues to spread. However, this skinny isthmus still maintains a very laid-back vibe, with small eco-lodges and boutique hotels serving as bases for adventurous pursuits and beach relaxation. We love this destination because of the array of diverse nature and adventures one can have in a short period of time without needing to move around a lot. For families looking for a nature immersion in rainforests, an understanding the evolution of species, and a wide array of adventures, Panama has a ton to offer.  But “laid-back” doesn’t always mean sacrificing sophistication and style — and that’s where our trip planning expertise comes in!
