Panama’s Pacific coast is urban metropolis, indigenous village and island escape all in one.
Begin your Panama journey walking the streets of Panama City’s old town, then travel inland to Gatun Lake to see the daily activity at the locks of the canal. Explore the abandoned ruins at Fort San Lorenzo, then follow the lure of the Pearl Islands, drifting from one sublime beach to the next and lounging, swimming and snorkelling along the way. Darien National Park vaunts not only an incredible array of wildlife, but also the indigenous Embera people who are eager to meet visitors to Mogue village. Cruising through Pacific waters gives voyagers access to everything across Panama’s southern coastline, ensuring an unforgettable experience.

Excursions and experiences
Each of our tailored itineraries is sprinkled with what we call 'Peregrine Moments', those special experiences you'll only have while travelling in a small group with one of our local leaders. Here are just a few of the experiences you'll share in Panama.
- Travel to the Darien National Park and the Mogue Embera Reserve. Paddle upstream in dugout canoes to reach the village of Mogue and meet the indigenous Embera Indians.
- Drop anchor in stunning locations like Restingue Island, Cebaco Island, Punta Patino and the beautiful Pearl Islands for some incredible swimming and snorkelling experiences and island beach barbeques.
- Visit the Panama Canal Expansion Centre at Gatun Lake and the Canal Museum to learn more about the history of the famous waterway and watch the enormous ships move through the locks.
- See the abandoned ruins at Fort San Lorenzo, originally built to protect the Panama coast from pirates in the 16th century.
