Santa Catalina

(4/5 based on 1,200+ reviews for top 10 attractions)
Things to do: adventure, sightseeing
Since Santa Catalina became known in the international surfing community in the 1970s, it has done well to maintain its identity as a tucked-away fishing village. Surfers who stumbled on the formidable waves must have decided to keep it a secret, because the village still enjoys a refreshing lack of touristic development. Still, a holiday in Santa Catalina can be a comfortable affair, with a few local restaurants and cafes set in pleasant beachside buildings, along with a small number of surf shacks and budget accommodations. To personalize your trip to Santa Catalina, create itinerary details specific to you using our Panama trip builder.
