Discover a variety of activities in Panama
When you stay at Radisson Summit Hotel & Golf Panama, you can spend a morning hiking through Panama’s rainforests before making the 15-minute drive to downtown Panama City for some of the country’s best shopping and entertainment. The renowned Panama Canal is just five miles from our hotel, and you can take the family bird-watching at Panama Rainforest Discovery Center or at Summit Municipal Park. Step back in time with a visit to Casco Viejo, Panama City’s historic district, and then look into the future at Biomuseo, dedicated to preserving the biodiversity of the rainforest for the next generation.
