Honeymoon Destinations for Outdoor Enthusiasts: Panama

The exact location of Panama on a map is the Pacific Ocean borders to the south and the Caribbean Sea to the north. A honeymoon is an opportunity to unwind after the stress of wedding planning, and what better way is there to do so than to visit the country Panama, graced with beauty, flora, and fauna, bubbly with life and an endless string of outdoor activities, not to mention the beautiful scenery for photography?

Ideal vacationing weather in Panama is around December to April when the climate is most conducive and inviting. However, the downside to this is that most tourists, both local and international, choose this time of the year for their holidaying activities. Therefore, the demand for accommodation as well as flights to, from and within Panama increases. Generally, temperatures in Panama are usually hot throughout the year, and it may rain a little around October to November when the temperatures also go down the lowest. The colder temperatures are characterized by intense, piercing winds that may, at times, turn destructive, and it may affect ocean tides and humidity thus ruling out these months of the year.

For a couple that wants to splurge on their honeymoon, the demand tends to be higher around March, and thus prices are low. This, however, does not rule out the fact that Panama is home to some of the best, most expensive and also the most exquisite hotels in the world such as Villa Bonita that has hosted dignitaries from all over the world. However, for the less extravagant, a variety of hotels are available and relatively affordable. The necessity of booking, however, cannot be emphasized enough.

Panama has excellent sites to behold. An example that is widely known is the Panama Canal. It is a glorious sight as ships harbor at the canal, which can serve for as a historical site as well as the beauty of it. The Panama Canal is a great spot for photography. Nothing gets more beautiful than the natural parks in Panama. A trip to Panama is not complete without a visit to the Gamboa Rainforest where animals such as baboons may be spotted. However, if not careful, it is easy to get lost in the forest as they are very thick. Panama is also the home of art, preserved in The Museum of Contemporary Art. It is an open and free museum where even the history of the art pieces displayed is provided in detail.

I would suggest Panama to a nature-loving couple. Panama may be small and almost inconspicuous but attractions are countless and the memorabilia ageless. Panama presents a romantic getaway where the outdoors is more glamorous then indoors. With the right timing, right weather and well-planned for finances, Panama may even end up being a nature-loving couple’s regular vacation spot. The hills (Cerro Acorn) in its splendor that is well seen throughout, favorable weather and a population that is not very high make it even more attractive. It may seem costly to visit Panama, but it is undoubtedly worth every penny.
