About Panama and Tour highlights
Panama has a tropical climate. Temperatures are uniformly high, as is the relative humidity, and there is little seasonal variation. The rainy season lasts from May to November but rain rarely lasts all day. The dry season is from December to April.
From its humble beginnings as an Indian fishing village, Panama City is now a metropolis and a prosperous hub for trade and immigration. Despite its skyscrapers and modernity, the city retains its colonial influences found in several plazas and churches in places such as Panama Viejo. Activities in the city are endless there are rooftop bars, clubs, palettes full of international cuisines as well as nearby escapes to sandy beaches, admiring the famous Panama Canal or hiking Panama’s rainforests.
The Panama Canal is an engineering masterpiece allowing vessels to travel between the Atlantic and Pacific oceans via the narrow Isthmus of Panama. It is a ‘shortcut’ between the two oceans shortening the sailing time for ships. Tour the Panama Canal to observe the fascinating locks, Gamboa rainforest, Monkey Island and the man-made Gatun Lake.
