Sail Away to Bocas del Toro with a Panama Visa

April 9th, 2011
A 30-minute ferry ride away from the Panamanian mainland, the Bocas del Tora archipelago is laid back and beautiful, a perfect place to catch your breath and chill out. Bocas Town on Isla Colon is the largest community on the island chain, and while it still has a small-town feel, the growth of tourism in the region means that there are lots of places to stay, nightlife and fine dining options available. The surrounding islands offer surfing, snorkeling and other outdoor activities. Track jaguars in the ancient rainforests of the Parque Internacional la Amistad, lounge on isolated tropical beaches or catch a wave on your surfboard - it's up to you. Unfortunately, this archipelago's isolation and tranquility may soon be lost to development. Lonely Planet says: "It’s difficult to predict


Panama Visa Requirements for Tourists

November 21st, 2010
With its pristine, quiet beaches, Panama is one of South America's best-kept secrets. According to Gadling, only about a million tourists visited last year. However, as word gets out about everything the country has to offer tourists, that may soon change. In fact, according to the New York Times, more and more Americans are even relocating to Panama to start their own businesses. Despite the recent good press, for the time being Gadling says that "There's just enough tourist infrastructure here to keep vacationers occupied -- white water rafting, zipline excursions and fishing expeditions abound -- but you'll bypass the glut of chain restaurants, overpopulated coastlines and horrific traffic (outside of Panama City, of course) that typify so many other tropical destinations."

Panama Visa Requirements For An Evening in Panama City

May 25th, 2010
Panama City is Panama's capital and largest city. As you might expect, there's no shortage of ways to spend your time there. In fact, you may find yourself with too many activities to choose from. To get the most out of any visit to a new city, it's best to ask a local. Recently, Time magazine asked 3 famous native Panamanians for their recommendations. For example, according to New York Yankee's pitcher Mariano Rivera, the best time to visit the Panama Canal is from late afternoon until sunset, while the best seafood restaurants are located on the Calzada de Amador. Architect Spiros Vamvas recommends an itinerary that starts with whiskey sours at the Bristol Hotel and ends with dinner and dancing at Habana Panama. Naturally, jazz pianist and composer Danilo Perez recommends visiting


Getting a Panama Visa to See the Panama Canal

November 18th, 2009
Almost as soon as the New World was "discovered" by Europeans,  explorers were trying to find a way to sail through it. After all, what they really wanted was to get to Asia where they could trade for spices and other goods. When the new continents were finally mapped out and people realized that there wasn't a water route that went straight through either of the new continents, the obvious next step was to build one. At first, there was a bit of a disagreement as to whether the new canal should go through Panama or Nicaragua. Eventually, with the help of some deceptive propaganda spread by American lawyer William Nelson Cromwell on behalf of the French Canal Syndicate, Panama won the day. (According to Wikipedia, Cromwell falsely claimed that a dormant volcano in Nicaragua was erup


Do You Need a Panama Visa to Visit Panama?

October 25th, 2009
Unlike other countries in Central America such as Costa Rica or Belize, Panama is not yet a well-known tourist destination. However, that may be changing-Wikipedia reports that tourism to Panama has been steadily increasing over the last few years. It's easy to see why-Panama is covered with lush, green cloud forests and fringed by picture-perfect white sand beaches.  It is also surrounded by tropical islands, including the island used to film the original Survivor! If great views are what you crave,  check out Parque Nacional Volcán Barú,where you can climb to the top of a dormant volcano, Volcán Barú.  If you're lucky, you'll be able to see all the way to the coast on both the Pacific and Caribbean sides of the country! If you're looking for wilderness, you might check ou
