Fort Sherman Vacation Packages

40 miles (64 kilometers) to the northwest of the nation's capital city, Panama City, is where you'll find Fort Sherman.

Wanting a bit more of an adventure? The renowned Gatun Locks in Limon Bay, only 3 miles (5 kilometers) southeast, is a great place to visit.

No vacation is complete without a morning spent at the beach, and this vacation is no different. Taboga Beach is situated 50 miles (80 kilometers) to the southeast of Fort Sherman, while Blanca Beach is 25 miles (40 kilometers) to the northeast.

Enjoy some time with nature at the local natural treasures. Make sure you check out Culebra Cut, which you will find 25 miles (40 kilometers) from Fort Sherman. If you love it there, also visit Barro Colorado, which is 16 miles (26 kilometers) away.

Acquaint yourself with the destination and its surrounds by traveling to nearby Cristobal. It boasts Colon 2000 and Monument to Christopher Columbus, and it's only 4 miles (6 kilometers) to the east. If you are still hungry for adventure, why not also visit Gatun? It is just 7 miles (11 kilometers) to the southeast and features Canal Expansion Observation Center and Gatún Dam.

Just northeast of Fort Sherman lies Mechi, which is known for several fun spots, such as San Felipe Church, Fuerte San Jerónimo and Real Aduana de Portobelo. Fuerte San Fernando and Fuerte Santiago are some extra choices.

Get to know the traditions behind this region's cuisine. Make your adventure complete by checking out some of the local dining places.

Rice and plantains are among the ingredients that you'll commonly find in the local dishes.

Experience an authentic taste with local dishes like tamales (corn dough rolls) and corvina (baked fish).

For a wonderful dessert, or perhaps a sneaky afternoon snack, order raspados (ice topped with sweet syrup), a popular sweet treat.

If you enjoy a lager, ale or bitter, enjoy Balboa, a much-loved choice here.

If you don't feel like alcohol, resbaladera (chilled barley and rice drink) is an excellent finishing touch to any culinary adventure.

Even a basic greeting in one of the native languages will help you feel more at ease with everyone you meet. A fine example of a Spanish phrase is ¡Salud! (cheers/good health!). Also, knowing ¡Perdón, which means excuse me, is going to be another useful tool to have up your sleeve.

This nation celebrates Independence Day on the 3rd of November. If you're visiting on that date, you can observe any local festivities.

When it is time to say, "Hasta la vista" to Fort Sherman, you are sure to leave with fantastic memories and perhaps some gifts to take home.

Situated 40 miles (64 kilometers) to the southeast from Fort Sherman is Marcos A. Gelabert International Airport, the closest major airport.
