Activity adventure | Beach | City | History & culture | Honeymoon | Natural world | Wildlife

As with neighbouring Costa Rica, Panama boasts unspoilt jungle wilderness, spectacular Caribbean beaches, verdant mountain ranges and an abundance of wildlife. What you won't find is uncontrolled coastal development and large groups of camera-totting tourists, making Panama a secret well worth preserving.

This eleven-day tailor-made tour covers some of Panama's main attractions, including the famous Panama Canal, the spectacular San Blas Islands, the mountainous interior including the Chiriqui Cloud Forest and Baru National Park as well as the picture-perfect Bocas del Toro Archipelago, located on the country's beautiful Caribbean coast.
