Enjoy endless attractions, including museums, cathedrals, restaurants, cafes and souvenir markets. 

Family Adventure Day Boat Expedition - Take a boat tour with the family, through the Panama Canal and into secret waterways. Discover hidden islands where Capuchin and Howler monkeys can be seen leaping in the trees above. Occasionally, they become curious of visitors and venture down to take a closer look. In this boat tour ride, you will have the opportunity to spot huge container ships. Experience the Canal from a unique and up-close perspective, unlike anything you would see from a large cruise ship.

Sea Turtle Hatching & Nesting - June – November – Five of the world’s eight species of sea turtles can be found in Panama. If you are staying at Dreams Playa Bonita from June through November, you can find sea turtles emerging to lay their eggs in the sand of the beach.

Whale Watching – July – October & December – February – Witness the migration of whales, who have the longest migratory journey of any mammal. Panama is one of the few places in the world with two whale watching seasons with whales migrating from Antarctica and Alaska.
