A tour or cruise of Panama offers the perfect mix of nature, adventure and culture. Discover clear blue waters for snorkeling and diving, lush rainforests, vibrant indigenous communities, and idyllic islands. A trip to Panama wouldn't be complete without a visit to the manmade "eighth wonder of the world", the Panama Canal. But, Panama has much more to offer like Bocas del Toro, a Caribbean paradise where its Isla Bastimentos reveals an ecosystem rife with both terrestrial and aquatic wildlife. Glance into the lives of a vibrant Caribbean Kuna indigenous community in the San Blas Islands. Hike through biodiverse rainforests and along seemingly endless beaches.  Adventure Life has many all-inclusive Panama trips combining Panama wildlife with the life-affirming Panameño people.

Top Places to Visit on Panama's Caribbean

White beaches with nesting tortoises, Caribbean islands with indigenous peoples and mile after mile of paradise await you on the Caribbean side of Panama. Here are some of our favorite spots to plan a Panama trip around:

San Blas Islands are made of over 360 islands off the Caribbean Coast of Panama, only 60 of which are inhabited. The islands are virtually self-governed by the local Kuna indigenous people who host and educate travelers about their traditional lifestyle in harmony on these paradisiacal islands.

Bocas del Toro Islands, an isolated chain of islands off the northeast coast of Panama let you dive into a relaxed Caribbean vibe. Explore Isla Bastimentos National Marine Park and it's endless coral reefs for world class snorkeling and sea kayaking.

Portobelo was founded by Christopher Columbus on his fourth voyage to the new continent in 1597, and naturally, this quaint town is full of stories of conquests and plunder. Explore Portobelo and the coastline of the Caribbean side of the Panama Canal on a cruise of Panama's Caribbean coast to the Pacific Ocean.
