Humpback whale watching migrating from both poles

From July to October is the second whaling season in the Pacific Ocean of Panama. About 2,000 whales arrive on the Panamanian Pacific coast from Antarctica between July and October to mate and give birth. Panama is one of only two countries in the world that receives humpback whale populations from both poles. Panamanian waters are his favorites for their warmth. The sighting is one of the most wanted tourist activities, and it is carried out in areas such as Coiba, Cébaco, Iguana, Taboga, Las Perlas Islands and Bahía de Chiriquí. Here, scientists come to carry out their studies on this specie’s behavior.

One of the five World Heritage Sites is located in Panama

Declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1980, with the aim of safeguarding the cultural wealth and historical memory of Panama, San Lorenzo Castle is located in the Chagres National Park in the province of Colón. A guided tour of the fort is recommended. You can get there by taking the train to enjoy a beautiful panoramic view of the Panama Canal, where you can admire the incredible flora and fauna; a safe journey, without worries. The other way to get there is by car, from the Panamanian capital taking the Panama-Colón highway, in just an hour and a half you can enjoy the beauties of this monument. If you feel more adventurous, we do it by boat, from the town of Portobelo and explore the islands and beaches of the Caribbean. The views of the Chagres estuary are unmissable. In the area you can also hike the Cerro Pavón trail or enjoy the Tortuguillas beach. Explore the ruins of the San Lorenzo castle with Excelencia en Viajes!
