Panamá´s adventure is very well known, in part recently because of TV shows that have chosen Panamá as the location in which to film programs like "Survivor" and others, due the beauty of Panamá´s environment, mountains, beaches, plants and flowers.
Mountain biking, water rafting, hiking and surfing are very popular.
The waves in Coronado, Panamá and Gorgona are especially good for surfing, with surfers from all over the world coming for international competitions here.
Panamá has several national parks, with the "Volcán Barú" being one of the most important ones. Thousands of visitors come here to see the famous "Quetzales" (a bird), and for scientific projects.
Other places known for great beauty and adventure in Panamá are the isle of Coiba, Cerro Colorado, Bahía Piña (in the province of Darién), Golfo las Perlas (in the Pacific Ocean), and Bocas del Toro province, which has many exotic isles and resorts.
The province of Chiriquí is especially well suited for water rafting, due the many rivers that cross this region.
El Valle de Antón is also another good place to enjoy outdoors activities and lots of adventure.
One piece of advice, though, is if you want to take part in adventure travel, always go with a local guide. Mountains and forests in Panamá can be tricky and very isolated.
The government's Authority of Tourism can guide you with proper information on licensed guided tour agencies, that offer all kinds of packages at different prices. You can also contact the private Chamber of Commerce, or the local Chamber of Tourism for further information.
Of course, nobody leaves the country of Panamá without visiting the Panamá Canal, which is in the city of Panamá, or city of Panamá itself, which is an impressive cosmopolitan city, combining the old and modern world.
