The Ocean is Calling

What to Do

Not only is Panamá one of the best places for diving and snorkeling being one of the most bio-diverse ranges in the world, but it’s also the only place where you can dive & snorkel in both oceans in one day, and see two completely different underwater marvels. Visitors can witness amazing marine life, including 250 species of reef and game fish, five species of sea turtles, humpback whales, whale sharks, reef sharks as black-and-white-tips, tiger sharks, yellowtail snappers, butterfly fish, dolphins, schools of tuna, and so much more.

Descend into our waters for a chance to see stunning coral reefs–including the most extensive coral reef in all Central America at Coiba National Marine Park–rocky drop-offs, majestic mangroves, and even shipwrecks, so you can explore what pirates left behind. These corals are known to house even more marine species like cowries, arrow crabs, and Nudibranchia. 

Our most popular diving areas in the Pacific are Coiba National Park, Pearl Islands Archipelago in Panama City and Azuero Peninsula. On the Caribbean side Portobelo in Colon, and the Bocas del Toro Archipelago.







What to See

There’s nothing quite like the thrill of whale watching, and in Panamá, the experience is unlike any other. That’s because Panamá is one of the only two regions worldwide where humpback whales from the Northern and Southern hemispheres migrate for breeding and birthing.

Panamá is also home to more than 200 turtle nesting beaches dispersed between the Pacific coast and the Atlantic. Thanks to the diversity of habitats, ecosystems and its strategic geographic position, the country offers ideal conditions for 5 out of the 7 sea turtles species in the world to thrive. Sea turtle conservation is a priority in Panamá since the five turtle species found in Panamá are classified as either endangered, critically endangered, or vulnerable by the World Wildlife Fund. 

There is nothing quite like the once-in-a-lifetime experience of observing a mama sea turtle digging her hole in the sand and laying her eggs. Visitors can spend time at one of our many sanctuaries and even be a part of their conservation volunteer programs.
