Ask some regular people how Panama came to be called Panama, and all they may give you are blank-eyed stares. Panama, some locals believe, may have been called Panama after a commonly found species of trees, but the best known theory is that there was once a fishing village named Panama after a nearby beach. It means “many fish.”

But regardless of what people know about Panama, with its sprawling white-sand beaches, untouched natural features, and tropical weather, only one thing is for sure—it is an untouched paradise with unparalleled splendor.

Here are the top three places to visit in Panama:
• Panama City and Canal
o Panama City is a Latin America city where food, music, and night life abound. A cruise through the man-made Panama Canal is enough to take one’s breath away.
• The Highlands
o This is where nature lovers climb volcanoes, ride kayaks through snaking rivers, or watch the ever-elusive Quetzal.
• The Beaches
o There are thousands of pristine beaches in Panama, from secluded nudie beaches to terrifying surfing spots. Take your pick.
While staying in Panama, visitors often tend to (and most often fail to) choose
places that offer the best accommodation, world-class facilities, and excellent service. In the future, failing to cherry-pick won’t be a problem anymore.

After all, if you get to stay at a private island, would you choose not to?
