Panama Off The Beaten Path
You'll never know what you're missing if you don't explore Panama off the beaten path. For a unique Panama travel experience, head to places like Volcán, Piñas Bay, Coco Blanco Island, and more. Panama off the beaten path is littered with small communities, isolated beaches, and jungle retreats, making them an excellent alternative to the popular (and crowded) travel routes most visitors will be heading to.
Gulf of Chiriqui
Visit one of Panama’s less-frequented beaches to experience some of the country’s best surfing as well as beautiful dive spots. The lack of development here is definitely part of the appeal, as you won’t have a lot of competition for the underwater attractions.
If you’ve ever wanted to try diving, you can sign up for open water certification courses at the Panama Dive Center. These adventures start in shallow water while you master the basics, but you’ll be in deep water before you know it. As you go for dives, you’ll see manta rays and sea turtles live in the area.
