Darien National Park Vacation Packages
Panama City, which is the national capital, is located 160 miles (257 kilometers) northwest of Darien National Park.
From much-loved, tourist hotspots to still-undiscovered gems, the area around Darien National Park is wonderfully endowed with things to do and see.
Go to Panama's historic ruins, it's a great way to familiarize yourself with the region's rich past.
De-stress the way the locals do in Panama. Go sunbathing and bird watching while you are in the area. If you're seeking an escape from seeing the sights, why not indulge in the local watersports? Fishing and sea kayaking are available in the area.
Uncover the culinary arts of Panama by checking out the food that is eaten here. Some ingredients you'll find in many Panama menus are rice and plantains. Two of the local favorites worth tracking down are tamales (corn dough rolls) are corvina (baked fish). And when it is time for dessert, you can't say no to raspados (ice topped with sweet syrup). Find a good spot to relax and try Balboa, a popular beer in these parts. Those who are not used to drinking alcoholic beverages will want to try resbaladera (chilled barley and rice drink), a common drink here.
As the sun sets on your adventures, spend what's left of your balboas on last-minute keepsakes and bid a fond Adiós (farewell) to the people you've got to know and the places you've spent time.
