Breathe in the lovely fresh air at Panama's beaches. After all, who doesn't love the beach? Pack your sunglasses and hat, and head 40 miles (64 kilometers) southeast of Isla Popa to find Chiriqui Beach, or 11 miles (18 kilometers) north to Red Frog Beach.
Those who jump at every opportunity to explore the great outdoors will love Bastimentos National Marine Park. It's just 8 miles (13 kilometers) from Isla Popa.
Take a little break from Isla Popa with a visit to Bocas del Toro, only 6 miles (10 kilometers) to the north. You will find some interesting sights, such as Nivida Bat Cave and Bastimentos Sky Zipline. You won't regret a stopover in Isla Solarte, about 10 miles (16 kilometers) to the northwest of Isla Popa. Here you will find some further worthwhile sights, such as Bocas Butterfly Garden and Bolivar Park.
You'll surely have a good time at Lil' Spa Shop by the Sea, Bocas Marina and Tortuga Beach in Wizard Beach, just 12 miles (19 kilometers) northwest of Isla Popa. Other choices include Finca Los Monos Botanical Garden and La Gruta, which are also in the neighborhood.
Food is an important part of any vacation, so to really get to know a region is to check out its local flavors.
Typical meals here are often prepared with locally sourced ingredients, including rice and plantains.
Try a few of the popular meals here, like tamales (corn dough rolls) and corvina (baked fish).
Raspados (ice topped with sweet syrup) is a local dessert that is definitely not to be missed.
Pull up a barstool and buy a round of Balboa, a recommended beer in Panama. Drink responsibly!
Resbaladera (chilled barley and rice drink) is a regional, non-alcoholic drink that anyone can try.
An ideal way to impress the locals is learning some of their language, so brush up on some basic Spanish phrases. Start from the beginning with Buenas tardes, a popular phrase that means good afternoon. Also, understanding ¡Perdón, which translates to excuse me, is going to be another handy tool to have in your arsenal.
See Panama spring to life as you join the crowds for Independence Day, a national celebration held every year on the 3rd of November.
