You want to know something? IT WAS EVERYTHING. These types of trips really refresh my spirit and renew my sense of go-get-em. The day to day gets drab, you know? Camaraderie, ocean, sand, food, and relaxation we’re exactly what I needed! I have a friend who recently moved to the area, so it was the logical choice for this year’s girls trip. Both of The Travelistas attended this one, which has become a rarity. We’ll have to remedy that!

Anyway, we flew into PTY, which is the main airport in Panama City. A 2-hour drive out to Rio Hato left us in true paradise, staying at the luxurious and relaxing JW Marriott Golf & Beach Resort, visiting nearby town Penonome to take part in the Carnival festivities, an awesome waterfall hike and swim, and a day in the city. Enjoy the photos of our trip to Panama!

 

This is the JW Marriott Golf & Beach Resort in Rio Hato, on Pacific Coast of Panama.. It is a stunning luxury resort that is right on the beach, I highly recommend to all travelers! Come see this warm and welcoming destination: PANAMA.

Moving along to Penonome, Panama…

The exact center of the Americas!

The local market, locals shop here a few times per week to guarantee fresh meats and produce.

Then we headed up the Cerro la Vieja mountains to splash around in La Tavida waterfall! There were plenty of locals swimming, hot temperatures make it necessary to swim in the cool natural waterfall.
