East of Costa Rica and west of Colombia, Panama is a narrow isthmus connecting North and South America. Panama offers an incredible variety of world-class attractions. Discover exotic tropical rainforests, beautiful mountain refuges, Caribbean-style beaches, 1000 islands, seven living Indian cultures, a sophisticated capital city, Spanish colonial historical sites, and the famous Panama Canal. Visit the Miraflores Visitor's Center to witness 5,000,000 ton vessels rise and drop more than 50 feet as they make their way from one ocean to the other.
A sovereign, fully democratic country, Panama is a top destination for adventurists, eco-tourists, history buffs, beach lovers, families, and romantics. Panama offers free emergency health care to anyone who enters the country through Tocumen International Airport. English is widely spoken, and the U.S. dollar is the official currency.
Panama City offers a cosmopolitan area, Manhattan-like skyline and world-class casinos while also housing the only rainforest in the world within city limits. Along the Pacific Coast, just outside of the city, begins a Hotel Zone with a string of beautiful white sand beaches and sapphire blue waters. Booking one of Apple Vacation's Panama Escorted Tours allow visitors to explore San Jose and the surrounding areas, including the Caribbean Coast.
IMPORTANT: A passport valid for a minimum of 6 months from the day of arrival is required for U.S. citizens traveling to Panama.
Panama's lowlands average temperatures of 80F-90F degrees during the day, while the highlands enjoy spring-like temperatures year-round. The dry season is from mid-December through May and the green season from May through December. During green season travelers can expect daily showers in the late afternoon.
