Santa Isabel Vacation Packages

The popular city of Panama City lies 45 miles to the southwest of Santa Isabel.

Let the sun shine on your face and the waves crash over your feet at one of the surrounding area's most popular stretches of coast. We recommend Taboga Beach, 55 miles to the southwest, and Blanca Beach, 35 miles to the west.

The surrounding area also has a lot to offer tourists. Miramar and Palenque are two popular places that you can go to.

The regional center, Portobelo, is where all the action is. Starting from Santa Isabel, head west for 35 miles and visit San Felipe Church, Fuerte San Fernando and Fuerte Santiago. Fuerte San Jerónimo and Real Aduana de Portobelo are additional places if you have extra time.

To really gain a true understanding of Panama, make sure you visit the restaurants and cafés. These are good spots to meet local residents and try popular dishes.

To capture the culinary heritage of the region, try out local ingredients like rice and plantains.

Why not sample tamales (corn dough rolls) or corvina (baked fish)? Both specialties are common fare in the region.

Your tastebuds will thank you for sampling one of the area's tasty treats, raspados (ice topped with sweet syrup).

Be sure to put up your feet, hang loose and tame your thirst with a sip or two of Balboa, a favorite brew amongst the locals here.

Accompany your delicious meal with resbaladera (chilled barley and rice drink), an alcohol-free option that's popular with locals and visitors alike.

Many travelers agree that one of the greatest courtesies you can present to the locals is to go to the trouble of learning a few common words and phrases. "¿Querría bailar conmigo?" is Spanish for "Would you like to dance with me?" "Este caballero pagará por todo" is also worthwhile knowing. It translates to "This gentleman will pay for everything".

Independence Day, on the 3rd of November, is a day of national celebration you'll want to take part in.

The unfortunate thing about vacations is that they eventually end. Although you might be saying "Adiós" to Santa Isabel, don't worry too much, you will be welcome to visit again!

When it's time to hit the tarmac, the Tocumen International Airport is 35 miles southwest of Santa Isabel.
