Some of the best local beaches are Taboga Beach and Coronado Beach. The first is 45 miles to the northeast and the second is 17 miles to the northeast.

When you start to crave the sights and sounds of nature, grab your daypack and head to Chorro Macho Waterfall, located 15 miles from Rio Hato. Another option is Sleeping Indian Girl, 14 miles away.

Want to go to Santa Clara Beach and Farallon Island? They're located in Las Guias Occidente, roughly 1 mile from Rio Hato. La Casa de Lourdes Outdoor Spa and Farallon Beach are some additional places. These are 3 miles away from Rio Hato, in Santa Clara Beach.

About 14 miles to the north of Rio Hato is El Valle de Anton, a regional center which is home to El Nispero Zoo and Botanical Garden, Sunday Market and Museum El Valle. Valley of Square Trees and Anton Valley Historical and Cultural Museum are more great additions to your to-do list.

Enjoy the cuisine of Panama by spending some time in its enticing cafés and restaurants.

Keep an eye out for rice and plantains, two renowned regional ingredients.

Take a tip from the locals and try tamales (corn dough rolls) and corvina (baked fish).

Finish with a bang by sampling some raspados (ice topped with sweet syrup), a mouthwatering dessert.

If knocking back a few bottles of the local beer is one of your vacation treats, make a beeline for the closest watering hole and order a round of Balboa

If alcohol's not for you, resbaladera (chilled barley and rice drink) is a great alternative.

Long-time travelers understand that a good way to get the most out of any vacation is to practice a variety of basic expressions in the local language. ¡Que pase un buen día! is the Spanish way of saying have a nice day. ¿Cómo estás? is also worth learning. It means how are you.

If you're planning to visit on the 3rd of November, you should get ready to party. Each year on this day, the whole country comes together and celebrates Independence Day.

As your adventure draws to a close, spend any remaining balboas on last-minute gifts and bid "Adiós" to the friends you've made and the places you've been to.

If you'd like to find the closest airport, it's approximately 55 miles away.
