The remaining parts of the original Panama City
This settlement dates back to 1519, when Pedro Arias Dávila and 100 other inhabitants made it their home. The area now known as Panama Viejo was the first permanent European settlement on the Pacific Ocean. When you get there, explore the archeological site of Panama Viejo to see the Old Panama Cathedral, as well as various historical ruins. Next, climb atop the iconic bell tower and look at the Panama City skyline from the city’s original “skyscraper". While you’re there, take some time to shop at the artisan market, where you can pick up local crafts and souvenirs.
Fort San Lorenzo - Portobelo
An extraordinary example of 17th and 18th century military architecture
You’ll get to walk through the same dark, musty hallways of the colonial era, and view the heavy cannons nestled behind the walls. Take in the stunning views of the Chagres River, and on out to the Caribbean Sea. The historical area is not only great for exploration and introspection, but it’s also an excellent place for birdwatching.
Coiba National Park
A marine reserve located in the Gulf of Chiriquí
Coiba is a world-class diving destination offering access to Bahia Damas Reef. Not into diving? You can experience the local wildlife in a whale watching tour, or a hike through the rainforest. Look out for over 147 bird species, as well as monkeys, crocodiles and iguanas. And, if surfing’s your thing, you’ve come to the right place.
One of the highlights of visiting the Colon province is the Caribbean towns, like Portobelo and La Guaira.
