Recent Panama reviews

  • Casa Oceana is the best!!

    "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at 'the jungle house', after a narly trip here from the NW USA, it was such a relaxing treat to chill out on the spacious deck surrounded by the jungle! The house was awesome and the grounds were spectacular! The location is ideal too, close to surf spots, swimming beaches and just a short bike ride to town which we really enjoyed! It was nice to be greeted at the airport by carol and she gave us a little tour of town! Tera provided excellent friendly customer service and was super helpful!! We would stay at Casa Oceana again for sure!!"

  • Best choice for a relaxed stay in the caribbean Bocas area

    "My wife and I had a really great stay at La Casa Blanca while our fantastic journey through Panama. Isla Solarte means caribbean flair pure and is far enough from the bustling Bocas Town to have it quite and relaxed there. The house is in a nice area, has it's own waterdock from where you can go for snorkeling to the nearby coral riffs and a huge terrace with an impressively view, especially by sunset. It's equipped with everything you need for a self catering stay. Also nearby there's a jungle for little hikes where we have seen exotic birds like parrots and many of red frogs and funny crabs. Augustin, who lives directly in the neighborhood, gave us a good support. He took us with his boat to Bocas Town anytime we needed to go there to buy food for our meals and took us also to a nice and very personal boat tour and snorkeling trip to Dolphin Bay, Coral Cays and Bastimentos. If you go there just ask him for fresh fish. In any case we will highly recommend La Casa Blanca for a relaxed stay in Bocas area."

  • Absolutely fabulous!

    "My husband, teenage son and I recently enjoyed a spectacular week on Contadora Island. We had the pleasure of meeting Peter, a gracious and very honest property owner as well as Kevin & Jasmine, his dedicated Inn Keepers. They were always available to give advice or answer questions to make our stay everything we'd hoped for and more. A fabulous boat tour of the surrounding islands was easily arranged thanks to their guidance. Contadora is a safe, tiny, quiet island and perfect get away with deserted white sand beaches and turquoise waters. Driving around in the Kawasaki mule was a blast. In March it was sunny and a steamy 34 degrees daily with nighttime temperatures only dropping to around 24. As supplies are limited and expensive on Contadora, we tried virtually all of the restaurants and highly recommend Clarita's for an inexpensive local meal or Gerald's for great food/atmosphere (especially when his pet deer Mimi came by to visit)! We would return to Contadora without hesitation and highly recommend reserving your stay with Peter & Anke. Enjoy!"

  • Had a wonderful time-family of 8.

    "We were a family of 8 adults and spent almost a week at this most unusual home. We all loved the distinct differences this house had to offer.. Colorful areas for relaxation and conversations. We were there during the rainy season and we were all comfortable because of the open spaces and fans. After we found the house is was very easy to get out to the grocery stores which were supplied. We never went out to eat as we have a lot of cooks in the family and they enjoys staying in at night and having great dinners together. Even went down the beach to a rather local type fishing village and bought fresh lobsters right as they came in off the boat. Speaking of eating in I can't fail to sing the praises of the housekeeper Omaira. After all those cooks messed up the kitchen she faithfully cleaned up all the messes and would not let us near the sink. A marvelous gentle lady! Some of the family took a side trip to El Valle and had a good day otherwise we stayed home to enjoy the house and swim in the ocean "when the tide was in", take naps and read. We would recommend this property. Even though the owner was away when we arrived she made sure everything was ready for us. Thanks again for a great vacation!"

Panama Travel Tips

Getting to Panama Vacation Rentals

The Tocumen International Airport in Panama City is located not far from the city center. Because of the rapid expansion of the city in recent decades, roads and traffic can be particularly chaotic and you need to allow for additional time to get to and from the airport. Panama City Airport hosts most major North American, South American and European Airlines. There are regular daily scheduled flights that link Panama City with other major cities in the United States and neighboring countries. If you are traveling to a region outside of Panama City such as Bocas Del Toro, you will need to get a domestic connection from the Marcos A. Gelabert Regional Airport. This is the airport that hosts most regional flights to the rest of Panama. In Panama, the best way to get around is by taxi. Car rental is not recommended unless you are traveling in more remote areas.

Panama Travel Attractions

The Panama Canal is a major engineering feat and one of the country’s biggest attractions. You can visit the Miaflores Visitors Center and join a guided tour explaining the history, construction and modern-day operations of the canal. Then while enjoying lunch or a cup of coffee at the restaurant, you can watch the locks operating and see the ships passing through. Half-day and full-day cruises on the canal will take you through a number of locks.

Panama City has a number of interesting landmarks and museums. Most are open throughout the year and provide interesting and unique insights into Panama’s history and culture. Unfortunately, not all museums have both English and Spanish transcriptions on their exhibits so it is sometimes useful to have a Spanish-speaking guide with you. The Old City is known as the Panama-Viejo. This is original site of the first settlement in Panama. The city was once a base for Spanish conquests but was destroyed by fire in 1671 when it came under attack of the famous English pirate Henry Morgan. The historical heart of Panama City is the Casco-Viejo. Here, you can see some colonial architectural masterpieces. Browse the shops and enjoy a cup of coffee at one of the street cafés.

The Bocas Del Toro Archipelago is a group of islands that is a marine paradise. Home to the first nature reserve in Panama, the islands offer a quiet retreat where you can forget all about corporate city life for a while. There are excellent diving and snorkeling on the islands. Many have great beach breaks and are popular surfing spots. Birdwatching is a favorite pastime and you can spend many leisurely hours on the beachfront.

Stylish Comforts at Panama Beach Houses

If you want a truly relaxing vacation then rent one of the beach houses in Panama. Enjoy a quiet rural ambience and have a vacation where you can put your feet up and do whatever you please. Stroll down to the local restaurant for lunch and enjoy a home-cooked seafood meal. In the evening, you can enjoy sundowners on the deck as the sun sets behind you. The homes are either cozy cottages or more spacious homes depending on your rental requirements. Living areas are comfortable and rooms are tastefully furnished.

Seasons to Visit Bocas Del Toro Vacation Rentals in Panama
