    Rio Hato: off the beaten track, but not for long

    Rio Hato is tucked away along the south of Panama in Anton District and is best known for Playa Blanco, a long stretch of white beach that looks out over the Pacific Ocean. It's only been on travelers' radars since 2013, when the newly-opened Scarlett Martinez International Airport started offering flight routes directly to its sunny shores. If you're lucky enough to score a Rio Hato vacation rental, not only will you have the beach and all the possibilities for oceangoing fun, you'll be a stone's throw away from the crisp mountain air in El Valle de Anton.

    Family fun on the beach at Rio Hato

    Other than a beach towel and a good book, there's not much more you need to have a good time along Rio Hato's Playa Blanca. When the midday tropical sun gets a little hot, just tiptoe down to the calm Pacific Ocean to cool off, or wander home to kick back at your beachfront Rio Hato vacation rental. If that sounds a little sedate for your liking, fear not. There's no shortage of water sports rental outfits, offering everything from kayaks to sailing trips. When the sun begins to dip in the afternoon, you can draw lines in the sand for a family volleyball match.

    Head for the hills of Rio Hato

    This beachy spot lacks somewhat in attractions, it's more about the sun, sea and sand. If you're itching for a little culture and some escape from the tropical coast, drive up to El Valle, a mountain village tucked away inside an extinct volcanic crater. The drive along the winding roads leading up from the coast are scenic enough to make the journey worthwhile. If you visit on a Sunday, you can't miss the morning market, where piles of colorful fruit and vegetables sit side-by-side with local handicrafts and souvenirs. Bring plenty of cash and prepare to practice your bartering skills.

    Top up your tan in Rio Hato

    Though you can stay in a Rio Hato vacation rental any time of year, if you want to avoid the tropical downpours, try to visit between mid-December and mid-April, during which you'll find endlessly blue sunny skies. Don't bother packing an umbrella, with little chance of precipitation, you'll never need to use one. Instead, be sure to bring you swimming gear and goggles and prepare yourself for long days stretched out on the sandy beaches, basking in near perfect mid-80s with a little ocean breeze. Yes, it really is as good as it sounds.

    Rio Hato: it's all in the name

    In the indigenous language, Panama means "abundance of fish", so you don't need to take our word that the waters around this Central American country teem with marine life. There's no doubt that when you stay in a Rio Hato vacation rental, you'll spend at least 1 day out exploring the colorful underwater world. There's simply too many species to list but highlights including sightings of bottlenose dolphins, reef sharks and more than 5 species of sea turtle. Back on dry land, you've got plenty of critters which swing from the forest canopies, like cheeky monkeys and lazy sloths.
