See the Top Things to Do in Panama City

When you stay at Summit Rainforest & Golf Resort, the best attractions, events and things to do in Panama City are only moments away. Spend a morning hiking through Panama’s rainforests before making the 20-minute drive to downtown Panama City for some of the country’s finest shopping and entertainment. The famous Panama Canal is just five miles from our hotel, and you can take the family birdwatching at Panama Rainforest Discovery Center or at Summit Municipal Park.
