Hotels in Panama
Since the country has become an increasingly popular destination for the wealthy, luxury hotels in Panama have sprung up. Some of the best hotels in Panama are in metropolitan areas, such as Panama City, where five-star hotels are increasingly available. The spots offer a variety of typical services and amenities you would expect, such as pools, spas, and world-class restaurants.
If you are looking for something a little different, resorts, villas, and locally owns bed and breakfasts are worth exploring. Some areas, like Kuna on the San Blas Islands, have tried very to hard to offer eco-friendly lodgings that fit in with their traditional huts. Keep in mind that, unlike the luxury hotels in Panama City, these traditional dwellings are not air-conditioned.
Just six hours away from that particular type of Panama hotel, there is an entirely different option. Mountain houses are available for rent in the towns of Boquete and Volcan and will bring you close to the country’s other enjoyable scenery.
What to Expect: On this two-and-a-half-acre island in the San Blas archipelago on the northeast side of Panama, hammocks swing gently on the verandas of 13 thatched-roofed bungalows set on stilts over the clear Caribbean.
The rooms are homey and comfortable. Guests enjoy fresh baked pastries and fruit for breakfast on their private veranda. Best of all, the area boasts world-class bird watching.
After a short flight from Panama City to Playón Chico (which the hotel will help arrange), guests of one of the five overwater casitas are picked up by boat and taken to the property’s private island.
