Never Thought I’d … Sleep in an overwater bungalow at Azul Paradise with a 3-month old.

Top Trip Highlights:

1. The Panama Canal! When built, it was the greatest engineering feat ever created by man. It revolutionized and expedited the global shipping of goods between the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans.

2. Traveling with a 3-month old and seeing how well he adapted to everything!

3. Driving from the Pacific Ocean to the Caribbean Ocean.

Best Foodie Find: Restaurante Ouchoymedia in Panama City

Never Thought I’d … Sleep in an overwater bungalow at Azul Paradise with a 3-month old.

Cultural Obsession: How kind and hospitable the Panamanian people were! They cherish family and would pick up my son and sing and dance with him.

Favorite Hotel: American Trade Hotel in Panama City. The property’s old-world, colonial charm creates the perfect place to unwind. Sip a cocktail on your private balcony, which overlooks the water and Casco Vieja.

Not To Miss: Isle Palenque. Situated among thousands of other islands, this boutique eco resort is a dare-to-leave-me escape for couples and families. And three, all-inclusive daily meals prepared by a Peruvian chef? Yum! What’s more, discover remote beaches—with nothing in sight but howler monkeys—just steps from your private bungalow.
