There’s something about traveling that’s so liberating, so exhilarating, and just down right awesome to breathe in different air and experience different cultures and scenery. My trip to Panama was nothing short of amazing, it was our annual girls trip that was much needed!
We started our adventure in Penonome, Panama, which is about 2 hours outside of the city. The JW Marriott Panama Golf & Beach Resort in Rio Hato was our home for 3 days (I highly recommend), we enjoyed carnival festivities, local food, sunshine, and a waterfall tour in the Cerro La Vieja mountains before heading back to the city. We spent the last day in Panama City and went to check out the Panama Canal. Everything was amazing, relaxing, and I can’t wait to do it all again!
Here are my 15 favorite photos from my trip to Panama…
This is considered the exact center of the Americas, found in Penonome. Pretty cool to say that I stood there!
The Panama Canal. This huge walls in the water are called “locks”, they open and close to allow water to move back and forth so ships can pass.
The largest ship we saw passing through the Panama Canal was this one, it is GIGANTIC. I don’t believe the photo does it any justice!
Fresh fruits and vegetables at a market in Penonome, locals shop here a few times per week to guarantee fresh food.
A few souvenirs…
Fish at the same market. They were smelly, but probably so delicious and fresh!
Hiking to La Tavida waterfall was one of the best things we did. With direction from the locals that were swimming, a few of us climbed up the base and jumped in! We had a delicious hot lunch afterwards, right under these straw huts. I recommend this, you can book this excursion with a tour guide at the JW Marriott Panama Beach Resort.
Beautiful statue in the center of the JW Marriott Panama Resort. Such a stunning representation of LOVE.
Here’s part of the group of lovely ladies, the sparkling pool at the JW Marriott was refreshing! This one was for adults only…
These fresh flowers were in the lobby at the JW Marriott and they were GORGEOUS!
