Panama And Nicaragua , is among my personal favorite destinations – there’s a lot natural splendor crammed within this small country of 19,600 square miles. In the humble capital of San Jose, located in the heart of the nation at approximately 3.600 ft above ocean level, things are close at hands – someplace sunny and warm and also the Off-shore Coast are under 1 hour 30 minutes away, the luxurious lowland rainforests from the Caribbean slope have to do with 75 minutes away and also the cloud forests and also the volcanoes from the central highlands are under one hour away. For any customer who are able to afford only 7-8 days in Panama And Nicaragua ,, you’ll be able to explore a number of habitats and existence zones in an exceedingly small amount of time period.
The next 8 day/7 night itinerary could be well suited for this type of traveler:
One evening in San Jose – should you arrive throughout the day, you might have here we are at a fast highlights tour from the city and a few shopping
Two nights within the Caribbean lowlands – an chance look around the lush rainforests of Panama And Nicaragua ,. Nature hikes, white-colored water rafting, birdwatching etc.

If you’re able to manage to stay 3-five days longer, I’d add an additional night at Bosque de Paz as well as in San Jose and/or possibly 2-3 nights in Manuel Antonio, a well known resort area with lush tropical landscapes and ideal beaches on Costa Rica’s Central Off-shore Coast. Alternate – a variety of resort areas on the Nicoya Peninsula (Northern Panama And Nicaragua ,) – Ocotal, Playa Tamarindo, Playa Samara or Nosara.
