Panama: 10-day itinerary

Jump to last reply

I've been to Costa Rica, but never to Panama. I'm looking forward to a visit this summer. I'm assuming that a few well-placed flights will save time, given the road conditions in some areas (similar to CR).

Here's what I was thinking:

2 nights in Panama City (Canal, Casco Viejo)
2 nights on the Pacific Coast (maybe Farallon/Playa Blanca area)
3 nights in Boquete (canopy tour, rafting, hiking, coffee plantation, Caldera springs)
2-3 nights in Bocas Del Toro area (snorkeling in Bastimentos Marine Park)

I'm not opposed to taking buses, but Bocas-PC looks like quite an endurance test (560 km.) Not planning on a car rental, as I have read taxis are plentiful and very cheap.

Any veterans of similar itineraries care to share? Thanks!
