Of course, we all have heard of the Panama Canal, and its long history of transit. But like any overlooked destination, the country is more than just its Claim to Fame; Panama is a popular destination for cruise ships and travelers looking for a unique and personal Central American experience. Its special blend of biodiversity, natural beauty, Spring-like temperatures, friendly locals, and abundant fruits erupting with flavor, are enough to place it in bold on any globetrotter’s map.
Last winter, WIT Agent Barb headed to Panama to check out this beautiful country for herself. She joined our longtime partners in the Central America, Caravan Tours–a reliable and affordable tour company that combines the best of education and luxury–for a Unique Look into the Heartland of the Americas that included:
Panama Canal – Pacific & Atlantic Oceans – Miraflores Locks – Old Panama – Gatun Lake – Embera Indians – Orchid Nursery – Playa Bonita – Handicrafts – Panama Canal Locks Transit Cruise
