San Carlos Vacation Packages

Panama City, the national capital of Panama, is situated 45 miles (72 kilometers) to the northeast of San Carlos.

Find some time to relax at the beaches surrounding San Carlos. Taboga Beach and Coronado Beach are a couple of this area's best beaches. Taboga Beach is 35 miles (56 kilometers) to the northeast of San Carlos, and Coronado Beach is 8 miles (13 kilometers) to the east.

It is known that the world's most beautiful treasures are provided by Mother Nature, and just outside San Carlos there are some for you to explore. It's only 13 miles (21 kilometers) from San Carlos to Chorro Macho Waterfall, and Sleeping Indian Girl is about 13 miles (21 kilometers) away.

Taking a day trip is a great way to discover more about a place. San Carlos is a short distance from Santa Clara Beach and Farallon Island in Las Guias Oriente, just 7 miles (11 kilometers) away. That said, you may also want to check out close-by La Laguna. El Nispero Zoo and Botanical Garden and Sunday Market are some other tourist attractions you won't want to miss while there.

If you're visiting San Carlos, consider going to El Valle de Anton, 12 miles (19 kilometers) away. Here, you'll enjoy many attractions, such as Serpentarium, El Chorro Macho and La Piedra Pintada. Other choices are Chorro de las Mozas and Chorro El Macho, which are also nearby.

Local fare can often be an integral part of any culture, and a fun way to get a feel for a region.

Rice and plantains are local ingredients you'll probably try during your stay in the region.

Try a few of the popular dishes here, such as tamales (corn dough rolls) or corvina (baked fish).

A great treat that's local to the area is raspados (ice topped with sweet syrup). You should have a taste while visiting.

Want to sample a popular beer here? Treat yourself to a pint of Balboa.

There are a range of drink choices on menus here that are suited to those who are looking for something non-alcoholic. Resbaladera (chilled barley and rice drink) is sure to quench your thirst.

A quintessential experience of visiting another country is learning different languages, so why not pick up some basic Spanish expressions during your trip? A prime example of a handy Spanish phrase is ¡Que pase un buen día! (have a nice day). Add Muchas gracias (thank you) to your repertoire and increase your conversational capacity.

Make sure you don't miss Independence Day on the 3rd of November. You'll realize how fantastic this area is.

Spend the last of your balboas on a souvenir or two, and say, "Adiós" to San Carlos.

Found 45 miles (72 kilometers) to the northeast of San Carlos is Marcos A. Gelabert International Airport, the nearest major airport.
