San Carlos is located 45 miles from the city of Panama City.

To really see more of this area, make tracks to Rio Hato and experience Farallon Island and Parque Nacional Coiba. El Valle de Anton, another interesting place, features the Serpentarium and Valley of Square Trees. This nearby destination is 14 miles away.

To find the Gatun Locks, the Colon Free Zone and Fort San Lorenzo, make your way north from San Carlos for 60 miles to Colon. Galeta Island Marine Education Center and the Monument to Christopher Columbus are also great to experience.

Get outside and make the most of the local adventure options. Have a shot at mountain biking or zip-lining.

Take a big breath and let your worries drift away as you try out this region's relaxing pursuits, like sunbathing and bird watching.

If you are after an escape from seeing the sights, why not take advantage of the water activities in the region? Swimming and snorkeling are popular in Panama.

Discover the range of tastes in this area by trying local food and drinks.

Begin your food adventure by trying out the wide variety of meals available, many featuring local ingredients, rice and plantains.

Any proud foodie should be sure they taste tamales (corn dough rolls) and corvina (baked fish) before enjoying other examples of local foods.

Enjoy raspados (ice topped with sweet syrup) for a culinary sensation particular to this area.

Refresh yourself with a glass or two of the local brew. Balboa is a good choice.

If you're in need of a thirst-quenching alcohol-free drink, make sure you try resbaladera (chilled barley and rice drink).

One of the most genuine courtesies you can give to the people you meet along the way is to take the trouble of memorizing a little of their language. "¿Querría bailar conmigo?" means "Would you like to dance with me?" in Spanish. There's also "Este caballero pagará por todo", which means "This gentleman will pay for everything".

If you will be in the area on the 3rd of November, remember that this day is one of celebration for the nation. It's called Independence Day.

We know you will be reluctant to say "Adiós" to San Carlos, however, the silver lining of a trip finishing is that you have been able to relax and have some fun.
