Visit Pacific Coast Beaches, Panama
In recent years, the Pacific coastline has begun to develop a number of lovely eco-lodge beach escapes.
They are good alternatives to the more well-known islands of Bocas del Toro and San Blas on the Caribbean coast and although they do not offer the cultural elements they have wonderful swimming, snorkelling, fishing, whale watching, surfing and kayaking in peaceful and untouched surroundings.
The coastline is vast, extending from the Chiriqui province in the west of the country through to the Pearl Islands some 100 kilometres south-east of Panama City.
Comfortable accommodation options are available throughout, such as Hacienda del Mar, Villa Camilla or the Coiba Ranger Station. Our specialists will advise you of the most suitable option, depending on your requirements.
