We have one great hotel in Panama, the brand new, world-class Riu Playa Blanca!  Did you know that Panama is the southernmost country of Central America and the whole of North America?  Situated on the isthmus connecting North and South America, it’s bordered by Costa Rica to the west, Colombia to the southeast, the Caribbean to the north and the Pacific Ocean to the south. The capital is Panama City.


This brand-new resort takes its first guests April 4! It’s on the beautiful Playa Blanca beach, just about three miles from Scarlett Martinez International Airport, or 93 miles from Tocumen International Airport (PTY).
