Playa Bonita Offers the Best of Both Sides of Panama
Just 20 minutes outside of Panama
City, Playa Bonita is the best location to experience the sprawling city's urban excitement as well as its natural wonders. Hugging the Pacific Ocean, the resort offers dramatic views of ships lining up for the Panama
Canal. Playa Bonita provides excursions to the lush Panamanian rain forest and the lakes and waterways that feed into the Canal, with Gamboa Tours.You can also quickly dive into the city, exploring Casco Viejo and the restaurants and nightclubs that never seem to close. The resort boasts six elegant restaurants and four pools. I loved the beach views but the rocky terrain and high waves make it best for lounging. I especially enjoyed the Oasis Lounge, where live bands served up an energetic supply of cumbia, salsa, and romantic boleros. The passion fruit mojitos were my nightly relaxation tonic.
