Contributed by: Don WinnerAs part of the "Discover The Interior" campaign of the Panama Tourism Authority, they recently launched the "Chiriqui is the most" promotion, with which you can visit the province of Chiriqui and stay for three days and two nights at the hotel of your choice from $233.50 per person. The package includes airfare, breakfast, taxes and up to 50% discount on activities and services. Activities include tours of the province of Chiriqui, rock climbing, climbing the Baru Volcano, among others. The promotion is valid until December 12, 2011 and is subject to the availability of each participating hotel. (Panamagazine)
Editor's Comment: They were doing this with Bocas for awhile, don't know if it's still valid. Basically the government sponsors or subsidizes these packages as part of an effort to get Panamanians to travel to see other parts of Panama.
