Surf, sun, sand and lush rainforests are just a few of the reasons why Canadian travellers flock to vibrant Panama each year.
And while it often costs Vancouverites over $500 CAD just to travel across Canada, a return ticket to this tropical paradise may cost far less. In fact, this flight with Aeromexico costs under $400 CAD return with only one layover in Mexico City.
The outbound flight departs Vancouver on Sunday, Nov. 10 at 11:20 p.m. and has one layover in Mexico city. The return flight departs Panama City on Wednesday, Nov. 20 at 3 p.m. and also has one layover in Mexico City.
The total cost of the return ticket is $379.39 CAD including all taxes and fees.
Considered a true marvel of modern engineering, the Panama Canal is an awe-inspiring 82 km waterway that connects the Pacific Ocean with the Atlantic Ocean. Completed in 1914, it is one of two strategic, artificial waterways in the world – the other being the Suez Canal. As a result, the lengthy waterway attracts throngs of tourists, with Panama welcoming over a million visitors annually.
With this in mind, the canal isn’t the only draw to the Central American country. From glistening white sand beaches to crystal blue waters brimming with colourful fish, Panama oozes with paradisical enchantment. Furthermore, tourists may enjoy a bevy of water-sports and activities including snorkeling, diving, paragliding, paddle-boarding, sailing, fishing, boat tours, swimming and more.
