If you are ready to start planning you next holiday, our 'Book with Confidence' pledge has been created to give you peace of mind. For new bookings made before 30 June 2021, we will not charge if you need to move your holiday dates or change to a new destination due to Covid-19, up to 60 days prior to travel. You can move your holiday to any time up to 31 December 2022 or 12 months from your departure date, whichever is later*. If you are unsure of your future travel plans when you need to make this change, we will provide you with a 100% travel credit note.
* Terms and conditions
We may need to adjust the cost of your trip to reflect any seasonal differences. Sometimes non-refundable deposits are required by local suppliers, which would be specified prior to booking. If you are unable to travel, we would secure a credit note for future travel from these suppliers, but you would not get a cash refund for these items. Flights that have already been issues will be subject to the rules of your airline & therefore may not be refundable or changeable. All other terms and conditions remain as standard.
 
If you are looking to travel closer to home, our sister company Auriel Holidays – offers a wide range of tailor made holidays in the UK, Europe & worldwide.

Panama City

Panama City is dynamic, sophisticated, multi-cultural and friendly. With a greater population of nearly 1.5 million, this is a major regional hub for trade and finance. It is not only the most cosmopolitan, high-rise capital in Central America, but it is surrounded by tropical rainforest. The forest is precious both as an important natural habitat and because it provides water for the commercially essential Canal, so it is very well cared for.
 
You will not have to go far to enjoy the typical Central American profusion of incredible wildlife. The rainforests of Soberania National Park to the east of the Canal are easy to reach and perfect for hiking and birding. Also located beside the Canal, just ten minutes from the city is the Metropolitan National Park, home to caimans, tapirs, birds and many butterfly.
 
The old city’s historic centre, Casco Vieja, is a delightful colonial maze of plazas, bars, churches, cafés and palaces. In contrast, the modern 1,000 metre long Centennial Bridge, built in 2004, carries the Pan-American Highway over the Canal. You can enjoy superb shopping here (high-end to ethnic) or wander through the Los Pueblos open-air mall. And just outside the city, don’t miss the stunning new Frank Gehry Biodiversity museum. Its world-class interactive exhibitions cover Panama’s emergence from the oceans and its importance in the world’s biodiversity. Download our Central America brochure (PDF 0.5 Mb)
 
ALL OUR PANAMA CITY HOLIDAYS ARE FINANCIALLY PROTECTED wherever in the world you live. Selling holidays for over 15 years.
The city sits at the southern, Pacific entrance to the Canal and was founded in 1519 by the Spanish. The original site was sacked and burned by one Henry Morgan, the notorious English privateer, in 1671 but the ruins of the old town - Panama Viejo - remain a fascinating and popular tourist attraction.
 
Panama is barely 50 miles across here so you have a wonderful choice for exploring both the Pacific and the Caribbean. Day trips from Panama City include the Canal, the beach at Santa Clara on the Pacific Coast, Embera village tours and Portobelo on the Caribbean Coast. It’s also possible to visit the San Blas Islands for the day if your timetable is tight but we’d recommend staying a little longer if you can.
