DISCOVER A VARIETY OF THINGS TO DO IN PANAMA
When you stay at Radisson Summit Hotel & Golf Panama, you can spend a morning hiking through Panama’s unique rainforests before making the 30-minute drive to downtown Panama City for some of the country’s best shopping and entertainment. If you’re here to explore the Panama Canal, our hotel is just five miles from this modern wonder.
You can take the family birdwatching along Pipeline Road or at Summit Botanical Gardens and Zoo. Step back in time with a visit to El Casco Antiguo, 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.
