Ultimate Panama Road Trip: Panama City, Gamboa, Pacific Coast & More - 15 Days

Panama is a great place for a scenic and adventurous road trip. In 15 days, this self-drive itinerary will take you around the most notable regions of the country. Begin in Panama City, then hit the road to discover the jungle, beautiful mountains, charming villages, and pristine islands. Some stops along the way include Gamboa, El Valle de Anton, Boquete, and the Pacific Coast.

Whale in the Pacific Ocean
Panama's Pacific Coast: Panama City, Playa Reina, & Santa Catalina - 10 Days

This 10-day trip to Panama’s Pacific Coast is the perfect mix of exploration and relaxation. Begin in Panama City, where you’ll tour the iconic Panama Canal, Casco Viejo, and take a day trip to visit the indigenous Emberá. Then, rent a car and drive to the beach—you’ll stay in Playa Reina for two nights, where you can observe turtles nesting and hatching. Next, enjoy some surfing and downtime in Santa Catalina, followed by a whale-watching excursion, before you return to Panama City.

Panama Rainforest Adventure - 8 Days

Ideal for hikers, birders, and lovers of wild nature, this off-the-beaten-path trek takes you to Darien National Park—an ecologically-diverse rainforest at the tip of Central America. In addition to rare species of flora and fauna, the region is full of history and native people who are happy to display their artistry and hospitality. Start and end the trip in cosmopolitan Panama City for a dose of urban culture.

Fort San Fernando in Portobelo
Panama History & Nature Tour - 8 Days

Harken back to the days when Panama was rich with colonial ports and pirate invasions on this 8-day itinerary. Starting in the capital, you’ll explore historic neighborhoods, see the Panama Canal by train, and visit ruins of a UNESCO-listed fort. Finish the trip with a catamaran ride in the same waters as the pirates once sailed. You’ll also hike in two national parks laden with exotic birds, monkeys, and tropical plants.

Best of Panama City - 7 Days

Melding colonial history and bold modernity, the cosmopolitan capital of Panama is a thriving hub in Central America.

Zulmy, our local specialist, did a brilliant job - she was friendly, responsive and helped us have an unforgettable three week trip to Panama! We started in Darien (and would highly recommend Ecotours Darien) and spent some time with the local Embera community, before visiting Santa Catalina, Boquete, Bocas del Toro and finally Panama City.

Working with Zulmy was a great experience as together we were able to setup a fantastic, first time trip to beautiful Panama. The balance of tours, and sight-seeing expeditions was a perfect balance. We had some organized excursions where our Guides and Drivers handled all details, tickets, admittances, getting to the front of the lines, and even a meal here and there. However, we also had our own free-time to pursue what we wanted, and didn't want, to do.

Definitely recommend Panama as a MUST see and do to every traveler. Can't say enough about how well that KimKim coordinated our trip. It was smooth and flawless so that we could just enjoy being there and taking it all in.

Thanks again, Zulmy!

Hotel Review
Riande Granada Urban Hotel
Panama City

It is a nice, clean, comfortable hotel located within walking distance of stores & restaurants. Our room was rather small with 2 beds taking up most of the space, a walk-in closet that was really unnecessary and could've provided more space for guests and also had a nice large shower though. We enjoyed the pigeons coming up to or 8th story room. There are many hotels in the area so would look to stay at a different place next time, however.

Authenticity & Character
Larger rooms. The outdoor "Hot Tub" was anything but Hot. Would be nice to be able to control the Temperature locally without having to go to the Front Desk to have them turn it On & Off. Also, to have hot coffee in the AM ready-to go for traveling would be a nice benefit. We had to order, then wait for coffee, which weren't in styrofoam or other types of traveling cups.
Location
Walking distance to stores and restaurants
Staff
Very pleasant staff and eager to help with everything.
Cleanliness & Comfort
Beds were comfy, the in-house restaurant was OK, nothing special.

Our driver Juan was such a pleasure - super punctual, pleasant and informative. (He claimed his English was terrible, but we were impressed.) We felt very well taken care of by both Zulmy and Juan.
Highlights of our trip in Panama City were the Panama Canal tour and exploring Casco Viejo. The rooftop pool at our hotel that overlooked the Panama City skyline was a hit as well. We also enjoyed the laid back vibe of Bocas del Toro - the snorkeling/dolphin tour was super and also hanging out at Starfish Playa on our own. The food was excellent in Panama, we especially loved the ceviche. The warmth was felt weather-wise and from the people of Panama. We were impressed with the collective Covid precautions taken by everyone. We definitely recommend kimkim and this trip.

The overall experience with Zulmy and Kim Kim went beyond my expectations. Zulmy was nice to work with via the internet, and the resulting trip was excellent and enjoyable. Your planning took all the worry and stress of traveling away so we could enjoy Panama to the fullest. Our driver, Roberto, and our 2 guides were excellent and fun to travel with. I will highly recommend KimKim to anyone wanting to organize a custom vacation experience like we had. Thank you !

Zulmy did a wonderful job for us. She understood our requests and provided good options. I think she did a great job.

We felt the length of the trip, the schedule, the accommodations, the personnel, etc. were all top notch. We knew essentially nothing about Panama before we went, so we weren't sure whether we were signing up for and engaging in things that would be meaningful or not.

The only disappointment was that there were a couple of times where we were working together on-line and suddenly she would disappear for a few days. In the end the package she helped put together for us was excellent.
