Top tips for finding the perfect Panama hotel
Panama City is among Panama's top destinations. We recommend booking a hotel here if you want to experience the country's vibrant nightlife, modern-day casinos, stylish apartments, and gleaming skyscrapers. For example, Wyndham Panama Albrook Mall Hotel & Convention Center will place you 12min away from the city center. If you're a shopping enthusiast, there is a mall close by. The Christmas Parade, better known as El desfile de Navidad, is a peak travel period in Panama City. Suppose you're looking to celebrate your Christmas holiday in Panama. In that case, you'll want to avoid the capital city but still get to enjoy hotel stays in equally large cities, such as David and Santiago de Veraguas. Aranjuez Hotel & Suites in David and Hotel Mykonos Panama in Santiago de Veraguas are some places you can stay to enjoy the thrill of significant albeit less crowded cities.
Panama has islands and coastlines along the Pacific Ocean and the Caribbean Sea. If you want to catch some waves, you'll want to stay near the Pacific Coast with wide beaches and large waves. However, if your little ones are tagging along and you would like to ensure their safety in the waters, stay near the Caribbean Coast that has small beaches with relatively calm water for relaxing or swimming. The Pacific Coast town Santa Catalina is home to Hotel Santa Catalina Panama, which lies nearby Coca Beach, has an outdoor pool, and offers swimming pool toys. Sister Moon Hotel in Isla Grande will place you on Panama's Caribbean side, and kids can enjoy the outdoor pool as you relax by the bar or lounge.
While Panama weather is usually humid, it tends to be worse in lower elevations. If you wish to escape the wet weather, consider staying in a high-elevation town such as Boquete. An example of a Boquete hotel is Boquete Tree Trek Eco Adventure Park that lies in a national park, an ideal place for an outdoor adventure.
