Yes, you will find an almighty canal and no, you won’t find locals swanning around in Panama hats. On a Geckos tour of Panama you’ll get to watch massive cargo ships and cruise liners negotiate the Panama Canal, see colonial mansions meet postmodern skyscrapers in Panama City, fall under the spell of Bocas del Toro, sip superior-quality coffee in the highlands of Boquete, and catch some waves at the local surfing mecca, Santa Catalina.
