Planning a trip to Panama? Good for you! Panama surprised me in many ways. I used the country as a way to get from Colombia to Costa Rica – like many travellers do – but I ended up liking it way more than I initially thought.

And what’s even better? You don’t need more than 3-4 weeks to explore the whole country. You can see most of the popular backpacker- and traveler destinations in an amount of time that short. From the Caribbean Coast to the Pacific side and the small towns in the mountains: traveling to Panama will be an amazing adventure.
