2014 marks the 100th anniversary of the Panama Canal, and we have exciting news about our Discover Panama tour for the 2014 season: our Product Manager has taken the best components from our existing tour and enhanced it with some new and exciting features. With easy flights from many gateways, the ability to use U.S. dollars, and great low rates during high season, now is the best time to book.
On arrival, travelers head directly to the Panamanian jungle and stay at the luxurious Gamboa Rainforest Resort, where they spend three nights exploring and relaxing in a deluxe river view room – complete with balcony and hammock. I can’t think of a better way to begin this adventure. Then travelers experience what they have been waiting for – a partial transit cruise through the 100-year-old Panama Canal aboard the Pacific Queen.
It gets even better. Escape the heat as you ascend a dormant volcano to Anton Valley. The community is nestled entirely within the volcano’s crater! You have entered a new ecosystem: a cloud forest. The region is charming and colorful, and you will feel the tranquility. Stay two nights in a local gem – Hotel Los Mandarinos. While here, take the opportunity to browse in an indigenous craft and produce market and enjoy a picnic lunch in an orange grove.
It is time for perhaps the biggest new highlight: two days to unwind and relax at the JW Marriott beach resort on pristine Playa Blanca. Bask in luxury as you relish in a full day of leisure with your choice of free time activities including water adventures, a round of golf, spa treatments and more.
This tour just keeps getting better as you move from place to place. And this is the perfect time to go—the canal’s 100th year anniversary. With so many new experiences and luxurious hotels, this trip is a must.
