Central America's unruly jungles and pristine beaches beckon the inner wild child in us all. Throw off the trammels of domesticated life and set yourself free on this week's seven-day Escape to Panama, courtesy of Elegant Adventures.

You and a kindred spirit will spend three nights at the Gamboa Rainforest Resort, followed by four nights at the InterContinental Playa Bonita Spa & Resort. You'll receive daily breakfast for two, basic medical insurance and traveler assistance, and round-trip ground transportation between Tocumen International Airport and your hotels ($1,218).

The journey begins in a Standard Room at the Gamboa Rainforest Resort, set on the banks of the legendary Panama Canal and the Chagres River in Soberanía National Park. The jungle teems with spectacular flora and fauna, and the rhythmic trilling of tree-frog choirs will sing you to sleep.

In the daylight hours, venture out to greet your neighbors on an included tour of Monkey Island. You'll cruise along the Canal, getting to know inquisitive capuchin and howler monkeys and marveling at toucans' dazzling plumage.

When darkness falls, tap into your nocturnal side on an included nighttime safari on the Chagres River. Look carefully to make out caiman, capybara, and two-toed sloths moving through the ink-black forest. Between excursions, you can soothe tired muscles in the Hydro massage hot tub and thermal baths at the on-site Sensory Spa by Clarins.

For the second leg of your adventure, you'll set up camp in an ocean-view Deluxe Room at the InterContinental Playa Bonita Resort & Spa. Scout out the swim-up bar along the palm-fringed pools or take a solo trek along the private beach, leaving your footprints in the unspoiled sand.

The resort is mere minutes from Panama City, giving you easy access to one of Central America's cultural hubs. "You'll never run out of things to do at night in Panama City," says Fodor's. "As the sun sets on the torrid afternoon and evening takes over... an exceptionally lively bar and dance scene fills in the gap, running the spectrum from conversing over a quiet drink to shaking your stuff to the latest Latin rhythms."

It's not hard to leave trivial cares behind. Just pack an unflinching sense of adventure for this week's Escape to Panama—it's beyond your wildest dreams.
