Outdoor adventures in picturesque Panama

Occupying the isthmus between Central and South America, Panama is in a world of its own. A tropical land of haunting cloud forests, towering mountains and flawless blonde beaches, it's spliced through by the Panama Canal, an incredible feat of engineering. Ideal for adventures, you can speed through rainforest canopies on a zip line, trek to breathtaking vantage points, raft along rivers or just relax on a sun-kissed beach. Paying a visit? Be sure to check out Panama City. A Miami-like sprawl of skyscrapers, it's home to some of the very best Panama vacation rentals, with casinos, historic monuments and energetic nightlife to explore.

Waterfront living in fun-packed Panama

With its beach-laced Caribbean and Pacific coastlines, it's no surprise that watersports dominate the agenda. Snorkel among enchanting reefs in Bocas del Toro, dive with whale sharks in the Pacific, raft the racing waters of the Chiriqui Province or catch the surf in Santa Catalina, the choice is yours. If you prefer to stay on dry land, rock climbing and guided treks through the rainforest can fill your itinerary instead. When you want to unwind, you can soak in a hot spring, enjoy a fresh local coffee or let off steam in a fiesta-fuelled nightclub.

Picturesque plazas in Panama City

Choosing a Panama vacation rental in the capital is the best bet if you want to tick the star attractions off your to-do list. Cutting through the country and linking the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans, the 77-kilometer Panama Canal is the most famous of them. A major shipping route first used in 1914, the waterway's rich history can be discovered at the Interoceanic Canal Museum. Small but perfectly formed, Casco Viejo is Panama City's coolest, smallest and oldest neighborhood. Rebuilt in the late-1600s after being destroyed by pirates, the UNESCO World Heritage Site is home to crumbling churches, beautifully-restored colonial facades and picturesque plazas.

Feel the heat in sun-soaked Panama

Wherever you choose your Panama vacation rental, the climate doesn't vary too much, unless you're up in the mountain ranges, where it's much cooler. Boasting a tropical climate, Panama maintains a high and humid temperature all-year round, with an average high of around 86 degrees, good news if you enjoy hot weather. While visitors come here throughout the year, the dry season is the most-desirable time. It runs from mid-December through mid-April, with sporadic rain falling outside the season.

Rivers, mountains and more in spectacular Panama

Hemmed between Colombia, Costa Rica and the Caribbean and Pacific Oceans, it's no surprise that Panama has such a diverse and spectacular landscape. Geographic features range from mysterious mangroves and rippling rivers that meander through valleys, to beautiful beaches and wild, impenetrable jungle. The dominant natural landmark is the verdant Cordillera de Talamanca mountain range, which sits beside the Costa Rica border. For wildlife lovers, Panama is a paradise. Visit the jungle to see creatures such as sloths, marmosets and capuchin monkeys, to name but a few.
