Cambutal is situated 140 miles (225 kilometers) southwest of Panama City, the country's capital.
To understand why so many tourists choose Panama as a place to vacation, ensure you see a bit more of the places surrounding Cambutal. Pedasi and Chitre are two more places worth visiting while you're in Panama.
Panama is a good destination for travelers with a passion for open-air markets.
Active travelers in search of action should max-out their heart rates by signing up for a zip-lining or mountain biking adventure. When the temperatures climb, do what the locals do and head to the region's gorgeous waterways for a day of scuba diving or surfing.
Why not let your tastebuds loose in Panama's cafés and restaurants. Locals in this region frequently use rice and plantains in their cooking. Why not order tamales (corn dough rolls) or corvina (baked fish)? Both dishes are a favorite choice in this area. To complete your local dining experience, try raspados (ice topped with sweet syrup). The bars in this region often have Balboa, so order one if you enjoy drinking beer. Visitors who never drink alcoholic drinks will want to order resbaladera (chilled barley and rice drink), a common drink here.
As the sun sets on your adventures, spend your last balboas on last-minute keepsakes and say Adiós to the people you've met and the spots you've been.
