Join trip in Panama City, Panama's eclectic capital and a curious mixture of old colonial Spanish architecture and modern American city buildings. Built on the back of the trade and plunder from the Spanish colonies in South America, Panama City was a key trade route as gold and silver were transported by mule through the rainforest of the Darien region, up to the Caribbean.
Due to the number of evening flights into Panama City, your Leader plans to do the welcome meeting on the morning of day two, and will leave a message in reception with details on timings and everything else that you'll need for the day. There are no activities planned today, so you are free to arrive in Panama City at any time. If you would like to receive a complimentary airport transfer today, you'll need to arrive into Tocumen International Airport (airport code: PTY), approximately a 45 minute drive away from our hotel.
If your flight arrives earlier in the day, we recommend a visiting 'Casco Viejo', the heart of the colonial town. Its ramparts were built to fend off marauders, and from the top you have excellent views of the 'Bridge of the Americas'. Stay: Country Inn & Suites (Comfortable)
