Panama City

— 5 nights

Dubai of Latin America

Arguably the most modern of Central American cities, Panama City boasts a shimmering skyline of glass skyscrapers.
For shopping fun, head to Albrook Mall or Multiplaza Pacific. Get some historical perspective at Casco Viejo and Iglesia del Carmen. Step out of Panama City to go to Colon and see Gatun Locks, which is approximately 1h 40 min away. There's lots more to do: get engrossed in the history at Museo del Canal Interoceanico de Panama, take in the spiritual surroundings of Iglesia de San José, appreciate the extensive heritage of Avenida Balboa, and take a stroll through Cinta Costera.

With a lively banking sector and a booming tourism industry, Panama remains one of the most powerful nations in the Americas, though it's also one of the smallest by land area. The country boasts coastlines on both the Pacific Ocean and the Caribbean Sea, so it's not surprising most Panama holidays include some form of seaside entertainment. With outstanding beaches all over the country, it's easy to find an ideal spot to swim, snorkel, dive, fish, sail, or simply kick back on the sand with a few cold drinks. The country's best-known landmark and one of the world's most significant shipping routes, Panama Canal tops most tourist itineraries--many choose to see this engineering wonder by traveling the length of it by train.
