Adventures in Panama
Some people take vacations to relax and take a load off; others utilize the time to clear the mind; and then there's you, a breed of individual that looks at a vacation as a means to take on a set of new adventures. Finding a place that offers such activities to satisfy the needs of the adventurer inside you may start off as a difficult task, but once you realize where you should be looking, your eyes will widen. It's time to leave the United States and the comfort of familiar cities for a land that, though it may be foreign, is guaranteed to satiate all of your adventuring needs.
Being a lush, tropical environment, Panama offers a vast array of activities that will cater to all walks of life, from the timid to the overly adventurous. No matter what level of adventurer you are, the city of Panama will be able to cater to your needs. One of the more breathtaking activities is the canopy aip-line tour. Harnessed safely to a thick stretch of wire, you'll zoom down the Central American jungle at canopy level. With up to 9 different stops, you're sure to get the most amazing views of Panama's jungle one could ever ask for.
While the canopy zip-line tour is sure to give you an amazing overhead view of Panama's jungles, it is the awe-inspiring helicopter tours that truly deliver. Find yourself high in the sky, hovering over the majestic beauty of this country. Be sure to bring a camera, or you may find yourself having a hard time convincing anyone you were soaring over the lush jungles and crisp water's of Panama.
More adventurous individuals can take part in a nice walk through the jungle. Follow one of three trails to a refreshing-looking river as you get up close and personal with the local wildlife and vegetation. These short hikes accompany the zip-line tour perfectly, as you'll see up close exactly what you were zooming by overhead. The lush green environments make for the perfect place to call home for a night, so be sure to make use of the campsites that you'll pass along your travels.
To tone down your activities quite a bit, you can find yourself swimming in the comfort and safety of NitroCity, Panama's premier waterside resort. Take part in such activities as fishing, jet skiing, Kiteboarding, and, for the true adventurer in you, sky diving. Feel the adrenaline course through your body as you defy the worst case scenario with these high octane activities. The best part about NitroCity? You're still in range of Panama's beauty, so you won't feel like you've left country's breathtaking nature behind.
While these activities certainly can be enjoyable within a group you're not familiar with, it's always best to travel in a pack of your own. You'll want to designate one individual as the group photographer, for these locations are nothing short of scenic and gorgeous. You'll also want proof that you conquered the country of Panama.
