Experience tropical breezes and beaches with Panama vacation packages

Panama Vacations: Beaches East to West

Panama is a land of rainforests, exotic wildlife, and stunning Caribbean and Pacific beaches. While many visitors come to Panama for its wilderness escapes, most come for the Panama Canal, a 50-mile waterway that links the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans. Don’t let the canal’s relatively short distance fool you. This stretch of water is an engineering wonder. The Gatun, the Pedro Miguel, and the Miraflores locks flood with water, lifting ships above sea level, allowing them to complete their journey between two oceans. Cruise the canal or visit the locks with Liberty Travel.

Discover Panama City's Shopping

Located on the Pacific side of the Panama Canal, Panama City is a metropolitan hub of trade and commerce.
