There are not many places where you can have a true adventure these days without sharing the experience with hordes of tourists . . . but Panama is one of them. It's hard to shake off the feeling during this two week tour that you’re in on a secret the rest of the travelling world has yet to discover. The country's highlights are still very much off-the-beaten-path destinations, though it’s likely that this will change in the years to come. Until its anticipated tourism boom explodes, however, Panama is a real gem with mountains and rain forests to explore, endless islands and islets, sublime beaches and pristine waters. There is incredibly scenic trekking opportunities and a veritable bonanza of colonial towns, exquisite handicrafts and the friendliest people.
