Resort & Spa
Within a short
distance of Panama’s capital, Panama City, is the new
300-room InterContinental Playa Bonita Resort & Spa. The hotel
features several pools, a 10,000-square-foot spa, three restaurants
and 12,500 square feet of meeting space. Nature lovers can enjoy a
hiking trail that rises behind the property to reveal wonderful
vistas and glimpses of colorful tropical birds.
About 20 miles north, the Playa Bonita
resort’s sister property, the 145-room Gamboa Rainforest Resort,
stands at the confluence of the Chagres River and the Panama Canal.
Both properties can arrange expeditions to attractions such as
Panama City’s wonderful Casco Viejo colonial district.
