The hugely diverse landscapes of Panama make for loads of great opportunities for those who like adventure. Here are some of the top spots for adventure travel in the Central American nation.

If you’re into diving, Panama has both Caribbean and Pacific coasts. Some of the best spots are in the Las Perlas archipelago in the Pacific Ocean, where there are 90 islands just waiting to be explored. Time your visit right and you might also be able to see humpback whales in the area.

Those that prefer to stay on top of the water might fancy a bit of kayaking in the Guna Yala archipelago on the Caribbean side. Home to the Guna indigenous community; these 365 islands are home to amazing white-sand beaches, palm groves and fascinating traditional villages.

White-water rafting fans should head inland to the Chiriqui River near the town of Boquete, where there are a number of tour operators waiting to take you out on the water. The town is also a great jumping-off point for jungle hikes and ascents of Volcan Baru, the highest volcano in Panama.

Surfing is also popular in Panama, with the islands of Bocas del Toro the most popular Caribbean surfing spot. It’s also worth checking out the Azuero Peninsula, with Playa Venao a particularly highly-regarded surf beach.

Similar to other rainforests, Australia's are home to dangerous animals and fauna not friendly toward people, but, on the other hand, many have reported taking peaceful nature walks and feeling more connected to the Eerth from exploring the vast rainforest.
