Why Stay At JW Marriott Panama Golf & Beach Resort
Take a 90-minute drive from Panama City through the pastoral countryside of Coclé province to arrive at this secluded beachside luxury resort studded with amenities.
Nestled between two rivers on 1,000 lush acres, the Hacienda-style JW Marriott Panama City resort provides for both an adventurous and relaxed stay. All of the spacious guestrooms feature private gardens or balconies. Spanish Colonial décor, and marble bathrooms are offset by modern amenities like high-speed Internet and iPod docking stations. The sprawling property, part of the affluent community of Buenaventura, centers around expertly landscaped gardens, three outdoor pools and the tranquil Buenaventura lagoon. While you can snorkel on-site at calm El Faro Beach, you have your pick of more adrenaline-charged activities like zip lining or surfing at nearby Rio Mar. You may also elect to take it down a notch with holistic body treatments at the intimate full-service spa or tee off on the Jack Nicklaus-designed par-72 18-hole Buenaventura Club golf course boasting scenic beach vistas. After a day in the outdoors, head to one of the resort's dining spots. Tamarindo Restaurant is the culinary standout and puts an emphasis on locally sourced ingredients and flavors.
Due to the resorts secluded location, car rental is recommended to be able to get around on your own.

Why We Love Buenaventura
Only 80 minutes from Panama City, yet light years removed from the big-city hustle, Buenaventura offers elegant exclusivity along sandy white beaches.
Where to Drink: Sip a Passion Fruit Margarita at one of the ranchos (thatched roof palapas) at Pipa's Beach Bar & Restaurant. The place is located near the quaint village of Farralón and sits right on the sand offering panoramic ocean views.
Cocktails for two $15.
Road to Farallón, Playa Blanca.
Where to Shop: Brave the windy mountain roads, and discover the Sunday Market in the center of El Valle de Anton. Friendly vendors are selling indigenous Panamanian arts, crafts, jewelry and accessories. We recommend picking up local produce there, too.
Outdoor Excursion: Trade your car for a quad at Ty's ATV Tours. During the 3-hour excursion you'll trek up to a large waterfall and be rewarded with stunning views along the way. Take a dip in the pool at the foot of the falls and look out for ancient petroglyphs.
$125 per person incl. refreshments.
