Panama City may be the third cheapest major city in the world, but it has enjoyed the fastest growing economy in the Americas. This makes visiting Panama affordable, luxurious, and full of things to do. Combine all this with a close proximity to great diving spots, thick jungle, teeming rainforest, and the manmade marvel of the Panama Canal, and you’ve got a world-class luxury destination escape.

Nearby bustling Panama City lies the Anton Valley – a tropical rainforest so full of life that it has literally made the area famous (in the eyes of biologists anyway). From tree frogs with translucent skin, to wild and exotic rainbow toucans, visiting the Anton Valley is perhaps the best way to see nature while in Panama. The world’s only inhabited volcanic crater, the humid air and rich soil make for an incredibly potent mix miracle grow for life – be sure to bring the camera!

Soberania National Park is another step into lush tropical vegetation. Hike to waterfalls, hear the frighteningly loud yet oddly small Howler Monkeys, and walk the Pipeline Road – known for its abundant supply of eagles, toucans, and other exotic birds. Hike to waterfalls, dip in the water, and relax among Mother Nature’s resplendent beauty.
