Panama Nature Walks
Panama is an isthmus – a thin stretch of land that connects two lands masses. In the western highlands, mountains and volcanoes create a challenging terrain for intrepid hikers. Off the coast, Panama’s island chains have every type of beach you can imagine, and rare mangrove forests. The tropical rainforest here is known for its huge diversity of animals and insects, including many species of butterfly. With a naturalist guide, you’ll get an education in biodiversity as you traverse Panama’s intense landscape.
Do you want to try scuba diving but are unsure about plunging into a full certification course? If so, this is the course for you. Discover Scuba, operated by the Panama Dive Center in Santa Catalina, lets you scuba dive without a certification. It’s a great way to learn to use scuba equipment, try diving, and get a quick introduction to the ocean.
Go to the highest point of Panama on this exhilarating Jeep 4x4 tour of Barú Volcano. On a clear day, this chilly volcano peak offers incredible views of both the Caribbean and Pacific. Bundle up and get ready for the off-roading experience of a lifetime.
This tour introduces you to the Guna, one of Panama’s indigenous groups. They have full control of the white-sand islands and blue waters of San Blas and govern themselves independent of the rest of Panama. On this tour, you’ll visit two of the 365 islands that comprise the archipelago.
