Riviera Pacifica

If you’re looking for a resort-style beach vacation, complete with white-sand beaches and beautiful blue water, look no further than Panama’s Riviera Pacifica. This fast-paced area comprises a corridor of beaches along the Pacific Coastline, conveniently located just outside of Panama City and easily accessible with a car. At the riviera, you’ll find a variety of hotel options from basic to all inclusive, to higher-end resorts, as well as 5 golf courses.
