Here are 5 things to do in Panama to beat the high heat we’ve been having lately! You can either relax or go for something more challenging, you decide what you want to do!
1. Pool day
Enjoy the hotel pool where you’re staying, or if you’re just visiting, go over to a friends place, or visit these places:
If you are in Panama City
Hotel Sortis Exclusive Pool Day
If you are in the countryside
Nitro City- Punta Chame: They offer day passes and sometimes have really fun pacakages that include other activities.
Sheraton Bijao- Bijao: All Inclusive.
Playa Blanca Resort- Playa Blanca: All inclusive.
2. Chilling in La Laguna de San Carlos:
Perfect for a day trip! Take a swim in the lake and have a picnic! I went on a saturday and it was perfect! Bring cash to cover entry fees(It’s about 2.00 + bring some spare $ to use the bathroom they have at the community house). If you can’t bring your own food and beverages, they also offer it. Just make sure you bring dollars, they don’t take credit cards.
3. Boat Tour
I took one a while ago over at Gatun Lake, it was really fun! If you are looking for something more relaxed and just take a quick dip in the water, this one is perfect.
4. SUP(Stand Up Paddle).
Great activity and you don’t have to own a board, they’ll rent you one!
In Panama City:
Panamá SUP Company
Paddle Paradise Panamá
If you are in the countryside:
Nitro City- Punta Chame
Pacific Adventures- Buenaventura
Shokogi Surf- Pedasí: Go do SUP at Isla Iguana, it was beautiful water with a clear view.
Bibis on the Beach- Isla Carenero, Bocas del Toro: Calmer waters, after you finish SUP, go enjoy some local bocas lobster or other delicious food!
(Sorry, I could’nt find a better picture: P)
Aventuras Panamá: Their offices are here in Panama city, and they offer rafting across the country. I went to the one in Mamoní and it was a really lovely experience! People tend to get scared when I mention rafting, however I felt safe throughout the entire trip!
Have fun! Don't forget your Bikini Bag! Get yours by stoping by one of our Stockists!
