Probably the most important province in Panama, Panama Province offers the highly commercial lifestyle of Panama City, while keeping natural wonders up its sleeve.
The province also has a lengthy coastline with many inviting beaches, including Playa Coronado, Playa Gorgona, Punta Chame, and Playa San Carlos.
The islands of Isla Toboga and Isla Contadora are also worth exploring.�
Isla Toboga is picturesque and packed with day-trip escapees from Panama, and back-packers seeking a laid-back community and to enjoy the forested trails and sandy coves.
Isla Contadora has 13 sandy beaches.� Nearby is the beautiful San Jos� private island, with one development, the hilltop Hacienda del Mar.� There are days worth of exploration of the dense jungle on this island, and the deep waters off San Jos� are particularly rich in game fish. There are also native turtles on the beaches. A nightly wildlife safari seeks out white brocket deer, wild boars, dwarf anteater, snake and owl.
Panama Province also has national parks, perfect for camping, hiking, and enjoying the wilderness. Pay a visit to the Parque Metropolitano, or check out Soberania National Park. Other parks worth noting are Altos de Campana National Park, Las Cruces Trail National Park, and Chagres National Park.
So whether you want to enjoy some sun and sand, or soak up the culture, Panama Province is the place to check out. It has both modern, cosmopolitan features and enriching, wildlife experiences.
