Holidays in Panama
Panama is cosmopolitan vibe with a laidback Caribbean charm, sparking islands, tropical rainforests and striking coastlines, cityscapes and ancient forts. It is also a melting pot of different cultures and indigenous communities, in what is considered to be one of the world’s greatest crossroads. And nowhere can this be illustrated more perfectly than by the Panama Canal - an engineering feat that slices through the continental divide joining the Atlantic and the Pacific oceans.
Around 14,000 ships pass through the canal each year, and passengers onboard our Panama cruises will not only marvel at the sheer ingenuity of the design, but be amazed by the stark contrast of hulking steel against the steaming jungles alongside it, alive with colour, noise and an abundance of wildlife.
Panama City is a metropolis that combines modernity with colonial elegance, white sandy beaches and tropical rainforests. In Panama City you can enjoy the thrill of a buzzing city that is home to glittering skyscrapers and indigenous villages. We’ll wander amongst the remains of one of Europe’s oldest settlements on the Pacific Coast of the Americas, and be spellbound by impressive colonial architecture, as well as glorious views. We may also find time to sip cool Chichita Panamás and feast on fresh ceviche.
Taking up to 10 hours to pass through the Panama Canal, ships carrying cargo and passengers are able to cut through Isthmus of Panama without having to travel around the treacherous Cape Horn, which is why the Panama Canal is the world’s greatest shortcut. Discover the amazing facts about this engineering masterpiece and how its system of locks raises each ship 85 feet above sea level. Marvel, too, at the cloud forests of the Parque Nacional Soberanía teeming with native wildlife and natural biodiversity on what is a voyage of discovery.
