Experience of a Lifetime

Looking for something just a little different from typical touristy things like trails and snorkeling? How about horseback riding on the beach (yes, like straight out of the movies!). Or bring a hammock along, find a secluded beach and take the nap of a lifetime. Rent a car from us and take a short drive to Panama City to experience local art festivals, theater performances museums and galleries, too.

Whatever you crave, Coronado and the surrounding area can provide!

Trails / Hiking

Be sure to check out the trails at Bocas del Toro, but there are many more to explore around the area. Sendero Los Quetzalés is a five mile trail east of Cerro Punto, Panama and takes four to seven hours to explore, depending on how frequently you stop to take in the gorgeous cloud forest of Parque Nacional Volcán Barú that surrounds you.

If you’re looking for something a little different, check out the Amador Causeway, which connects three islands near the Panama Canal to the mainland. It offers gorgeous views of the city and is a popular “trail” for jogging, biking, or blading.

Visit El Valle, Panama (also known as Alton Valley) and explore the world’s only inhabited volcanic crater! Located less than an hour inland from Coronado, El Valle is home to over 500 birds and countless species of other plants and animals. And, while the volcano has been dormant and estimated five-million years, it’s still active with a number of mineralized volcanic hot springs. Basically, be sure to bring your camera on this hiking excursion!

Scuba Diving / Snorkeling

The marine life in Panama waters is something any visitor must experience. One of the best locations to do so is at the Coiba National Marine Park, centered around the Island of Coiba, the largest in Central America. You’ll get to see, up close and personal, more than 800 species of marine life. Be sure to bring your underwater camera!

Additionally, there is a beautiful coral reef in Bocas del Toro. It’s shallow water is ideal for beginning scuba divers. It also offers beautiful hiking trails through lush rainforests and beaches relatively untapped by tourism.

The Panama Canal

If you’re into the wonders of engineering, this is the most popular destination in the area. You can cross the canal in four to eight hours if you choose to experience it that way. You can also visit the Miraflores Locks Museum to learn about its creation and place in history. Or dine in one of the restaurants on the top of the museum to watch passing vessels on the canal and see it in action from afar.
