Local Area

One of Central America’s most vibrant and diverse metropolises, Panama City is a mix of cosmopolitan style, Spanish Colonial charm, and tropical beauty. The Santa Maria Hotel & Golf Resort is conveniently positioned for immersive stays in Panama’s capital. Within a few minutes are numerous upscale dining venues that serve a vast range of cuisines. Tocumen International Airport (PTY) is 12 kilometers away.

The downtown area is a hub of international commerce, shimmering skyscrapers, and urban life. Meanwhile, such enchanting neighborhoods as Casco Antiguo and Panama Viejo showcase cobblestone streets, crumbled ruins, and historic architecture. Trace the city’s lineage from the pre-Columbian era to the days of legendary pirates and Spanish conquistadors to the arrival of French and American prospectors, politicians, and engineers.

Admire the modern marvel that is the Panama Canal, including its recent expansion. Near its Pacific Entrance are such popular destinations as the Amador Causeway and Flamengo Island. Visitors will find plenty of shopping and entertainment options at Multiplaza Pacific Mall and Albrook Mall.

Panama’s rugged terrain and tropical climate have given rise to its renowned biodiversity. One-third of the land is protected, including three national parks that are UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Learn more at the Punta Culebra Nature Center and at Biomuseo, which was designed by Frank Gehry.

The uniqueness of indigenous communities throughout the country is evident in their wardrobes and dialects. Observe a variety of customs, dances, and handicrafts.
