Over 2 billion people are deep into their winter months dreaming of a moment away from the cold winter, snow, and slippery roads to somewhere tropical, sunny, and warm. Did that give you pause to look out the window? I wonder what you see?
Here in Panama, it's summertime and sunshine! So, if you're one of those 2 billion people, the new year has gifted you with some more time off, and you're looking for a quick get away to the tropics to warm up a bit, Panama is a quick and easy destination to get to. In fact, there are 89 airports in 37 countries around the world with direct flights to Panama City. At Tocumen International Airport (PTY), there are 166 daily flight arrivals. That means a heck of a lot of opportunity to jump on a jet plane to defrost.
Flights aren't the only reason Panama is an easy travel destination, it's also the safest country in Central America. Additionally, the water is safe to drink (except the islands), we use the US Dollar, the electricity and power outlets are the same as the USA, and we have a brand new road to our area.
Not everyone loves spending time in cities but travel pretty much dictates at least some time spent in a city so you're in luck in Panama. The city is pretty awesome; It's modern with beautiful ruins to explore, the Panama Canal, great restaurants, jungles to walk through, and exceptional hotels.
Most of the world doesn't think of Panama when considering their travel plans which means less crowds and more authenticity in those special places like surf breaks and island escapes. Tourism is still quite a new concept to Panama and unfortunately for us, has not been a high priority for the government. We are hoping the country is at a turning point after the mine debacle last year and Eco Tourism will be the focus for the future.
If this is sounding good right about now, and you need some help putting a trip together, we totally got you. All you have to do is get to the airport and we will take you from there. There's a lot of reasons our resort is ranked in the top 1% of hotels in the world; we make travel easy, adventurous, inspiring, safe, and delicious.
Join us for some warmth and don't worry, if you're in the mountains enjoying the snow, it will be there for you when you get back. We'd love to hear from you and especially want to know what you see out your window!?
