Travel to Panama and experience its wonders with this 8 Day / 7 Night Travel Vacation Package and Tour that includes
Panama City, the Panama Canal, Portobello, San Miguelito Town and San Blas Archipelago
Panama is located in the middle of the American continent. To the east lies Colombia and to the west, Costa Rica. It forms a natural bridge, 80 kilometers at its narrowest part that joins the Atlantic Ocean in the north with the Pacific Ocean in the south. The Panama Canal was built by the United States of America from 1904 to 1914 and is still one of the most amazing engineering marvels of the world.
The Canal provides easy and reliable crossing from the Atlantic to the Pacific and back for more than 750,000 vessels. Ships all over the world are built to fit the three sets of double locks that are part of this 80 Km (50 mi) long waterway, which can be visited any time. The favorite pastime of Panamanians and visitors is enjoying the Caribbean and Pacific Beaches. Both coasts have beautiful beaches with crystal-clear waters, white sand, coral reefs, and coconut palm trees.
These qualities make places such as Portobello and the San Blas islands in the Caribbean ideal vacation spots for sun-seekers and scuba divers. The San Blas Archipielago paradise is located in the northeast of the country. Every day of the year you can choose a different island from along the two hundred miles of coral reefs off the Caribbean Coast.
