My Latest Panama Adventure

A Driving Trip across PanamaTime for a Panama Road Trip!

It had been almost three years since we took a good road trip from Panama City across the country to Boquete. So, we decided to take a couple of weeks and explore some of our favourite spots. We really tried to put our 10 year Panama history aside and look at things from a fresh perspective.

A quick view of our itinerary –

  • Tocumen – Panama City and the Pan-Am Highway
  • Playa Blanca – all-inclusive R&R
  • The Azuero and Pedasi
  • The big beach at Las Lajas
  • Back on home turf – Fresh and breezy Boquete
  • Luxury at Buena Ventura
  • Casco Viejo – Art Deco and History Restored

From the beautiful beaches of Playa Blanca, down the Azuero Peninsula, a quick stop at Las Lajas and onward and upward to Boquete in the Chiriqui highlands…I’m going to spread our latest adventure out over a few posts with lots of photos and new info so stay tuned – just wanted to give you an update and let you know some ‘fresh off the plane’ info is coming your way!

Buen Viaje!
