Want to learn more? Let’s dive in a bit deeper and look at our top 5 reasons why we think you should visit Panama.
1. National Parks
More than a third of Panama is formed by protected natural reserves, dedicated to the conservation of the country’s ecosystems. Within these protected areas there are 13 National and Marine Parks and 1 International Park. Some are in the heart of the Panama City - a sweet juxtaposition between the natural and man-made world.
Although there are many to choose from, we recommend a visit to the Volcan Baru National Park. At 3,474 metres high, the towering Baru Volcano is the 12th highest peak in Central America. There are 7 craters and several walking trails suitable for all abilities. If you are an experienced hiker, you can make the journey to the summit from where marvellous vistas unfold.
Volcan Baru National Park is in the province of Chiriqui, a region renowned for its production of geisha coffee. This is one of the most sought after and expensive coffees in the world - so make sure to pick some up when you visit!
