Many travelers want to make sure their Panama vacation includes a visit to the Panama Canal. The Panama Canal acts as a vital connection between the Caribbean Sea and Pacific Ocean, directing nearly 14,000 ships each year through more than 50 miles of locks and lakes. Fortunately, many of our Panama vacations visit the canal; speak with our experts to select the right Panama Canal trip for you.

Panama vacations with AdventureSmith focus on wilderness travel, authentic culture and incredible wildlife viewing. Visit Panama in the company of expert naturalist guides to explore biodiverse beaches, mountains and rainforests. Our style of Panama travel actively explores world famous coffee regions, colorful indigenous culture and the incredibly engineered Panama Canal. We are Panama vacation experts and our team is here to assist you.

Choose to visit Panama on a scheduled small group tour, a privately guided custom Panama vacation or an exciting expedition cruise. Visit Panama as few travelers do. Explore deep into the remote jungle; tour from boutique beachfront inns; cruise the Panama Canal in a small ship; snorkel on a remote coral island, canoe to an isolated indigenous village or visit the best Panama City sites.
