Playa Blanca is located some 40 miles (64 kilometers) from Panama City, the country's capital.
When it comes to getting the best out of your time here, it's worth keeping in mind that Playa Blanca is just just the start; Panama is home to a treasure-trove of scenic and cultural delights. If you're looking for other places to check out, you'll find Chagres National Park, 19 miles (31 kilometers) to the northwest, and Colon 25 miles (40 kilometers) to the northeast.
Panama is a good spot for visitors interested in open-air markets.
The Panama area has a number of places for scuba diving, so ensure you leave room in your schedule to fit it in. Rafting is another popular activity here. Panama offers those in the area with a wide range of laid-back pastimes, such as bird watching and sunbathing.
Savvy travelers know that food is a good technique to truly experience a destination. Cooks in this part of the world commonly make use of rice and plantains in their dishes. Tamales (corn dough rolls) and corvina (baked fish) are just two interesting regional treats to taste. And when you are ready for dessert, why not try raspados (ice topped with sweet syrup). If you enjoy sampling the worlds' beers during your travels, try Balboa while you're in Panama. It is one of the region's best beers. And, regardless of what time it is, Panama is the perfect place to order resbaladera (chilled barley and rice drink).
At the end of your holiday in Playa Blanca, pack up your camera and mementos, spend your last of your balboas, and bid a fond Adiós (farewell) to this unique destination.
