It's a jungle out there: Explore the wilds of Panama, from rain forest to beach, while relaxing in the comforts of two resorts.

The Destination
With nearly a third of its landmass protected in national parks and wildlife refuges, Panama is home to a huge array of ecosystems and an even greater diversity of animals—species you won't find anywhere else in the world. So it comes as no surprise that this isthmus connecting North and South America—and the waterway that joins the Atlantic to the Pacific—has become one of the most important eco-tourism destinations on the planet. But it's also a hotbed of cultural exploration, offering both contemporary attractions in the decidedly cosmopolitan capital as well as traditional draws, such as Indian craft markets, in the more rural regions. Experience the best of Panama—courtesy of Elegant Adventures—on a seven-day excursion that takes guests from the beaches of the Pacific Coast to the rain forests of Soberania National Park.

The Digs
Your trip for two begins at Gamboa Rainforest Resort, where you'll stay for three nights in the heart of the Soberania National Park. Set on the banks of the Chagres River at the Panama Canal, this luxury eco-retreat sits on 340 tropical acres and comprises 110 spacious rooms and suites. Guests have access to three bars and two restaurants offering tropical and international cuisine, plus a fully equipped marina, large swimming pool, tennis courts, and full-service spa.

You'll spend the next four nights at the InterContinental Playa Bonita Resort & Spa, set on a private mile-long beach. Featuring infinity pools, waterfalls, and tropical gardens, this 300-room resort wows at every turn. On-site, guests will have three gourmet restaurants, a 10,000-square-foot spa, multiple swimming pools, and an array of water sports to keep them busy. Many of the rooms feature private balconies with views of the Pacific and the Panama Canal.

The Diversions
During your stay you'll get the opportunity to discover a variety of wildlife during two amazing eco tours. The Monkey Island day tour takes you onto Lake Gatun, where you'll see as many as four different species of monkeys, plus toucans, sloths, and a variety of birds. You'll also have the chance to take a dip in the spring-fed pools that dot the lakeside. 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.
