The province has close proximity to many of Puntarenas’s major tourist attractions and nature reserves, such as Puerto Caldera, which is a great place to parasail. Perfect for the adventure tourist looking for some action, this small port town has some amazing steep cliffs, from which one can take off to see some truly breathtaking views of the country’s Pacific Coast. Close by is the Turubari adventure centre where you can enjoy the Canopy Tour, the Aerial Tram, Horseback Riding, or the Sensational Cable. Read more about Puerto Caldera, Costa Rica

    View of Panama Canal, Panama

    Named one of the seven modern wonders of the world by the American Society of Civil Engineers, the Panama Canal is a 77 km ship canal in Panama that joins the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans, and is a key conduit for international maritime trade. Built from 1903 to 1914, nearly 850,000 vessels have passed through the canal. Interestingly, the 8-10 hour journey from the Pacific Ocean in the west and the Atlantic Ocean in the east is one from SE to NW. Crossing the Canal is something that we would all like to experience, and subsequently many passenger ships provide a narrator giving excellent information during the crossing.

    The Panamanian San Blas Islands archipelago of 378 islands and cays (only 49 inhabited) lie 130 km to the NE of the Panama Canal entrance at Colon. This southernmost part of the Caribbean Sea is free of cyclones and popular with eco-tourists, due to the pristine environs and undeveloped tourist industry.

From 1904 the town was the port of entry for construction equipment and materials, most canal workers, and supplies and provisions. Read more about Cristobal, Panama
