Try Journey Latin America’s new extension to Azuero Peninsula

An opportunity to extend your trip is possible to discover Panama's Azuero Peninsula which is known as the country's ‘cultural heartland’. Discover a heady mix of indigenous heritage, contemporary Spanish-inspired culture and cattle-raising.

Azuero Peninsula is situated in the centre of the country, on the Pacific side and boasts a rich history dating back to pre-Columbian indigenous groups, with many fascinating artefacts and ceremonial sites uncovered by archaeologists. Sadly, the Indians did not survive the Spanish invasion though, and nowadays there is a distinctly Hispanic tradition, best observed in the region's festivals and wonderful colonial architecture.

The 10-days basic Panama itinerary costs from £1,565pp, including B&B accommodation, excursions, transfers and domestic flights and the 4-days extension to Azuero Peninsula starts from £676pp.
