The Tourism Authority of Panama is aware of the importance of the development of tourism within the interior of our country. They have launched campaign entitled, "Discover your Interior", which promotes this area of the country with affordable rates and support for destinations like Boquete, Pedasí, Veraguas, and many others that can be visited by local and foreign tourists alike. This program is designed to enhance and promote the beauty of the Panamanian interior.
The first destination to be promoted during this campaign was El Valle de Anton with a promotion entitled “Discover the Interior, Get Away to the Valley. This event, which will run until October, will boost the economy of the region, and provide affordable rates for visitors who wish to enjoy some of the beautiful destinations that Coclé Province has to offer.
The next destination included in this campaign is Bocas del Toro, with its Bocas Combo being one of the tourist destinations for both foreign and domestic visitors. This region of the country offers visitors a wide array of activities and locations to enjoy, including: beautiful natural environments, unique beaches perfect for sunbathing and surfing, wonderful food and islands that beckon you to come and escape. This campaign is the result of agreements between the ATP, the Bocas del Toro Chamber of Tourism, and Aeroperlas. It aims to help both Panamanian and foreign visitors enjoy this destination at affordable prices, with range of excellent hotels to choose from. With an expected operating period of five months, this incentive program offers accommodations at 20 different hotels with promotional prices from $240.00 per person, including roundtrip airfare, accommodations with breakfast, and taxes. The packages include two nights and three days with an option of up to 4 nights and 5 days, varying according to the time selected and the cost of the hotel. It also offers discounts of 15% at participating restaurants and tour operators.
As indicated by the slogan of this promotion“The Bocas has never been so close”, a single traveler needs only some time off and a booking to enjoy an excellent stay that includes guaranteed relaxation, a beautiful destination, comfortable atmosphere, friendly people, and a unique regional cuisine. The program will contribute, enhance and promote the efforts of private enterprise in this region to offer an affordable opportunity for all those wishing to visit The Bocas and improve the region's economy.
