Panama Tours & Tourism

Did you know that Panama was recently named the #1 place to visit in 2012 by the New York Times?

Despite its small size (approximately the same size as Southern Carolina) Panama is an exotic destination filled with tropical rainforests, mountain ranges, volcanoes and two ocean coastlines including the Pacific Coast and the Caribbean Coast.

Panama City is the capital of Panama and has a well-developed international flavor with a vibrant nightlife and world class amenities. In contrast, rural Panama supports seven separate Indian cultures that live in remote reservations.

Some tourists choose to stay in Panama’s modern hot spots while others choose to venture off the beaten path. Caravan Tours’ fully guided Panama Tour does it all and features popular Panama activities such as a Panama Canal Cruise tour as well as a visit to an Embera Indian village in the tropical rainforests of Panama.

Panama Canal Tour Highlights

Panama City, the capital of Panama, is the core of the country and where most Panama Canal tours begin and end. Upon landing at the Tocumen Panama International Airport, visiting tourists become acquainted with Panama’s fresh Central American air.

Caravan’s all inclusive Panama Canal tour includes two nights in Panama City while exploring the Pacific side of the Panama Canal. Here tourists have the opportunity to explore the Canal’s locks system along with visiting Panama Viejo and Casco Viejo.

From here the excitement continues as the Panama Canal tour from Panama City then travels the canal through Gatun Locks, past Monkey Island and into the Gamboa Rainforest. Before Caravan’s Panama Canal guided tours end, the tour group will travel back south to the Pacific Coast to enjoy two nights at Playa Blanca beach resort’s white sandy beaches.
