Fly into Tocumen International Airport (PTY) where one of our local airport representatives will meet you as you exit your plane and guide you through an expedited immigration process. They will show you to the VIP Lounge where you can enjoy snacks and drinks while they collect your luggage for you. Once you are ready, the airport representative will guide you to your private transfer waiting outside the airport. A two hour drive outside of Panama City will bring you to the sandy shores of Playa Santa Clara. Check into your all-inclusive resort at The Sheraton Bijao and head down to the pool for a refreshing swim. Have dinner tonight at one of four restaurants within the resort.
After breakfast, find a spot alongside the pool or on the beach to call yours for the rest of the day! Enjoy the warm sunshine as you read a good book with cold beverage in hand. Take breaks from the sun with a swim in the pool or in the ocean. Enjoy unlimited drinks, snacks and meals while soaking up the Panamanian sunshine.
If you’re looking for a change of pace and scenery after a full day of beach bumming, then take a day trip up into the mountains to explore the quaint town of Valle de Anton (1 hour). Nature lovers will enjoy birdwatching on scenic hikes to picturesque waterfalls as well as a lovely butterfly house. Adventure seekers can go off-roading on ATVs through the jungle to the Cascada Tavida, a 100-foot waterfall perfect for swimming. Enjoy lunch at a local restaurant in Valle de Anton before returning to your beachfront resort. Indulge in a sunset spa treatment before dinner at Sheraton Bijao.
Enjoy your last full day in the ocean! Kayak, paddleboard, or windsurf the Pacific waters in front of the hotel. Take a break from the saltwater with a swim in the pool and repeat until sunset!
