I really can’t say enough great things about Panama! It is a 5 hour flight from Toronto International airport. We got a direct flight right to the small airport in Playa Blanca. It was about a 15 mins drive away from our resort the RIU Playa Blanca. I will warn you, the sun is extremely strong there. I don’t tend to burn, and I wear a 60 SPF and UVB, by day 3 I was staying out of the sun during the hottest hours. The Beaches in this part of the world are beautiful! The sand is grey and black and white in some places. The black sand is from the extinct volcano that was there before. We ventured out to Anton Valley with a bus tour! Well worth the trek! There were a few tours going out to a few different places like the Panama Canal. The RIU as a hotel was top notch! The food was amazing and so was the entertainment. There were 3 pools at the resort, including the swim up bar pool! The kiddie splash pad was away from the bigger pools. I would rate this hotel a 5+ for a great honeymoon spot! Or even if you have kids, its awesome also. Check it out, Panama Playa Blanca.Early Morning Sun Rise
