Sandwiched in between Costa Rica and Colombia, Panama is a small and tropical country that connects North and South America. Boasting plenty of rivers and coastline on both sides, the country has many different water sports hotspots, in spite of its small size.

This network of rivers is located in the west of the country and offers adventures suitable for everyone. Thrill seekers can choose some of the steeper rivers in the mountains that offer more intense rapids. Others that run through the jungle, are perfect for wildlife watching and cooling off on a humid day. Kayaking is also a popular option with many guides offering trips on Gatun Lake, in the Panama Canal. Here, there are opportunities to see massive cargo ships and explore biodiverse islands. Another popular option is to head to the Caribbean Sea and explore the San Blas Islands, one of which was used during the filming of the popular Netflix series, Money Heist (Casa de Papel)
