Every year, between July and October, there is whale watching season in Panama's Pacific.
Around the Las Perlas Archipelago, around the Azuero Peninsula and elsewhere you can watch the mighty humpback whales, mothers and babies enjoying the warm waters.
Impressive to watch them. you can too.
A world of 200 or more islands and islets in the Gulf of Panama, most inhabitated.
A maritime wonderland with whales, dolphins, marlins, mantas, turtles and more.
A paradise for sailing, sport fishing, snorkeling, swimming, beachwalking, and for seafood.
One hour west of the capital, in Gorgona, the Inter-American Highway gets close to the Pacific coast.
Along this coastline, from the tip of Punta Chame 70 km to Rio Hato, there are numerous settlements, fisher villages, hotel resorts, beach communities and lonely places.
And it's less than an hour by car to reach the former volcano lake of El Valle or the mountain tops of Altos de Maria, at 1,000m.
