Overview

This 9-day Panama vacation takes you to Panama City to explore the canals before staying at resorts in the jungle and at the beach. It features economy or superior accommodations depending on preference, active tours, and is a perfect combo of a nature adventure and beach stay.

Your journey begins in Panama City, the capital of the nation and the center of its colonial history. A full-day city tour will take you through the ruins of Old Panama to chart the city’s history and learn about its current formation. You’ll climb Cathedral Tower to look out over the old town, visit the Old Panama Museum to see artifacts and exhibits on the country’s history, and tour Casco Viejo, the old city compound, to learn about the city’s history and failed past endeavors to construct the Panama Canal. In the afternoon, you’ll head to the Panama Canal itself, the marvel of modern engineering that connects the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans. You’ll tour the Miraflores Locks, enjoy a presentation from the Panama Canal Authority, and tour the town of Balboa before connecting back into town.

From Panama City, connect 30min away to nearby Gamboa and Gamboa Rainforest Resort, which offers beautiful accommodations and easy access to the surrounding nature. Spend a full day at leisure taking advantage of the resort amenities and the many available activity options. Lounge in the luxury pool, relax with a massage in the spa, or head on an eco-adventure into the jungle, including a water tour along Gatun Lake or a wildlife trek into Soberania National Park to see sloths and monkeys. After exploring the jungle, connect to Santa Clara and Sheraton Bijao Beach, an all-inclusive beachfront resort overlooking the Pacific Ocean. You’ll have two full days at leisure to relax in your guest room with beautiful views of the Pacific or the Panamanian mountains and follow your fancy. Cool off in the outdoor swimming pool before dining on delicious cuisine in one of the three restaurants. Tee up on the nine-hole golf course or spend your days swimming through the warm waters of the Pacific and shopping in the nearby centers.

At the end of your stay in Santa Clara, you’ll connect back to Panama City for one more night before returning home.

Expert Tips & Advice

Opt for late seating. Most cruise lines offer multiple dinner seatings. Pick the late seating because many of the excursions won't get you back in time for the early dinner seating.

Protect Yourself with Manulife

Why purchase travel insurance?

• Travel insurance can reimburse your for out of pocket expenses if your trip is canceled and some of it is non-refundable

• If your trip is interrupted – perhaps there is an emergency that requires you to return to your starting destination – expenses may be paid and arranged for you

• Medical coverage that we have at home, including provincial Canadian plans, typically pay only a portion of what medical care costs internationally.  

Why Purchase Manulife Travel Insurance? 96% Claims Approval Rate!

We deal with Manulife Global Travel Insurance. We have carefully assessed travel insurance providers, and although these are not the cheapest policies – you do get what you pay for.  Part of the reason that we have chosen them is their claims record, which was to pay out 96% of claims.  

Why You Should Avoid Credit Card Travel Insurance

If you have insurance on your credit card, please note that very few have coverage that is applicable to fully cover your trip, there are often changes to coverage as you age, and often traveling companions are not covered.  

Update - Please note:  Policies are now available with Covid-19 coverage.  As always details are important – ask us!

We know that travel is important; for many of our client’s travel is essential to their sense of well-being.  Learning, relaxing, partaking in fulfilling experiences and filling up our memory bank is part of our identity.  

Insurance can sometimes be the forgotten piece, but we can’t afford for it to be.  Insurance needs to be integral to every travel plan because lets be real…risk is a part of life.  

So, what is your risk tolerance?  Are you ok to lose the investment in your travel plans?  Are you prepared to be out of pocket for your medical expenses, which can mount easily into the hundreds of thousands, and even more?  

This is a very personal, but important part of your vacation planning. Everyone is different in terms of what risks they are willing to take, and in terms of their personal health experiences and how that may affect coverage and pricing.  Our ask – please put insurance into your planning, check the terms and conditions carefully, and give our insurance a chance.  Please don’t travel without good insurance coverage!

All insurance policies have terms and conditions, please make sure you are aware and are comfortable with yours!  

Buy wisely, have peace of mind, and travel well!
