The Caribbean Coast, or Panama’s Northern coast stretches from Costa Rica to Colombia and is incredibly pristine and untouched. Other than Bocas Del Toro, near Costa Rica and Colon, north of Panama City, much of Panama’s Caribbean Coast is undiscovered and beautifully natural. Below I’ll quickly summarize the Caribbean Coastal towns in Panama with a link to a more in depth description on the Live Invest Panama website.
The islands of Bocas del Toro are located on the Caribbean coast of Panama, South East of the Costa Rican border and consists of many islands with tropical turquoise water with multiple islands; some highly populated with hotels, restaurants, and tourists, while others are virtually uninhabited.

These Caribbean towns are located between one and two hours drive North from Panama City, Panama. The vibe throughout the Caribbean coast is laid back and tropical. The crystal clear waters and rich history dating back to the 1500’s has made this area of Panama a historical paradise. Many Panamanians and tourists frequent these towns on the weekends and holidays to swim and picnic on the beach.

The Archipelago San Blas Islands are situated along the Caribbean coast of Panama, less than 2 hours from Panama City and stretch from the Gulf of San Blas to the Colombian border. The Kuna Indians, who run all the islands as an autonomous province, with minimal interference from the Panamanian national government have maintained their own economic system, language, customs and culture, with distinctive dress, legends, music and dance and thus have avoided traditional tourism development.
