San Blas: The Caribbean Paradise in Panama

Paradise is the word that describes San Blas. An indigenous territory on the Caribbean coast of Panama, with its own laws and even own border control. Kunas, the local indigenous, are the bosses here, not the Panamanian government.

Panama: a journey through paradisiac beaches and historical heritage monuments.

This is the story of the 17 days trip of a surfer’s couple through Panama. Most of the time we spent at Santa Catalina, a small beach-side town on the Pacific coast of Veraguas, we also knew Panama City, the capital of the country, famous for its dense skyline of mostly high-rise buildings as well as for its historical heritage.

Michele Ortolan

Time was not on our side

This and other kind of time issues accompanied our whole Panamanian journey. When we took the first sight at Panama City the linearity of time was really questioned: the colonial past and the modern future like good neighbors stand together in the forward-thinking present, and for our European eyes it was hard to decide what we really saw. An oversea metropolis? A big city from the Far East? A Latin-American favella? And these are just a few from the thousand faces of Panama City.

Top 5 things to do in Panama City

Panama City When thinking about traveling to Central America, I cannot stress enough how much you should consider visiting Panama. It’s truly a beautiful country. Due to it being a part of the US in the early 20th century, they still use the American Dollar as currency, besides their own, Balboa, which is worth 1:1 when compared to the USD. This makes getting around really easy since you won’t have to look around for places to exchange your local currency for an obscure one. Sometimes you might get change in form of USD and Balboas, but don’t let this confuse you, as stated before, they’re worth the same.

Javier Dux

A country a full of surprises for all the tastes.

Panama is a wonderful country full of contrasts they have an awesome gastronomy, and ideal landscapes, Panama have bout oceans and the city you can see part of them and feel the wonderful weather.

Panama: A Visit to Anton Valley

El Valle de Anton, also known as Anton Valley, is an active community and central gateway to many of the environmental features that Panama has to offer. Even more intriguing, is the fact that it is located in the crater of a volcano that erupted thousands of years ago. After seeing it repeatedly listed among the top attractions in Panama, I added it to the list of places to visit one day during my long stay in Panama. That day came soon enough, and the experience was both more and less than I expected.

Panama: Discovering Bocas del Toro islands

Even when our time in Panama was short, we had enough time to discover some of the secrets around this paradisiac and beautiful place. Panama is a small country, so you can move from one place to another pretty easy and always in company of the great tropical views and landscapes.
