The second part of the excursion was a delicious lunch on a house boat floating in the middle of the jungle (so cool!) and then there was a choice between kayaking through the jungle to a waterfall or fishing.
I was lucky enough to go with a privately-hired guide who was extremely good at spotting the monkeys as well as a whole host of other wildlife (birds, lizards, sloths!) Really great time cruising the lake from isl...

Playa Ejecutiva

Contadora Island
You can relax at the sand, the water is super clean and if you want you can also take a boat trip to do fishing or whale watching.
If you have more time and can visit more beaches, I'd recommend that, but this was still my favorite, where I'd recommend you spend the most time.
Highly recommend a guide to learn about the flora and fauna from a native Panamanian and with our tour through Boquete Outdoor Adventures our guide Ed took all the pictures and they were later available free on th...
There’s also some bird feeders there frequented by beautiful hummingbirds – we rested there watching the birds after we completed the hike.

The wide high sided canyon adorned by very old and new trees and thick jungle captures the whole of the length of the trail which finishes with a stunning ‘horse tail’ waterfall cascading from the top of the canyon.
Definitely worth the entry fee and getting as far as you can though as there are great vistas and chances to see interesting birds and nature (including some huge trees) in the surroundings - this contrasts with L...

Red Frog Beach

Isla Bastimentos
You can walk the beach and on the Far East end of the beach there is a nice walk path through the jungle along the ocean where you can look-out at the beautiful blue sea.
Red Frog Island is probably one of the prettiest beaches I have ever visited - perfect sand, punctuated by coconut-trees and not-too-vicious waves for children to play at water's edge.

Loved the bus ride here...driving right along the beach....great restaurant with superb drinks and hammocks, chairs, swim beach.

Finca Dracula

Cerro Punta
We had an amazing tour guide who was informative, interesting, patient with questions and allowed some hands-on experiences as well.
Cerro Punta is a beautiful place overall, but make sure to spend a bit of time here to learn about the plants most especially the orchids.
Raquel is amazingly welcoming, and she’s very articulate in describing the animals wild lairs and habits in addition to the ways she makes them feel at home in her sanctuary.
If you visit Panama, want to experience wildlife up close,-really close- and see Panama's tallest mountain, Visit Raquel's Ark in Volcan.
We had a great VRBO right on the beach, nested among fishing boats and families.
10$ for the four of us, gave us our picnic table under a little cabana with a hammock.
