Panama, chosen among the best holiday destinations for 2020
Posted on 2019-11-01
Panama is No. 1 on the list of the best holiday destinations for 2020 according to Condé Nast Traveler magazine, rounding out the places that will come into play next year.
"We have carefully selected the 15 destinations to watch in 2020, from Panama to Plymouth, Sicily to Senegal, Kyoto to Kyrgyzstan" indicates the important magazine.
According to Condé Nast Traveler, ecological retreats once again put an idyllic isthmus on the map.
The site describes that the Isthmus possesses from coffee plantations and cloud forests to strong Spanish ruins and footprint-free islands, Panama has the products, but not the number of visitors. They emphasize that this will change with the opening of the eco-retreat of Dry Islands in December 2019, which gives access to 14 small rugged islands in the Gulf of Chiriquí on the Pacific coast bathed by the sun of Panama.
It stands out that 33 nautical miles from the mainland, there is the complete service escape outside the network, which previously only had a group of beach yurts and a basic fishing cabin, comprises four sites of individual houses, with capacity for only 18 guests on one of the islands. The residences, nestled in the tropical forest full of toucans on the island, are designed with privacy in mind, each with an outdoor terrace area, a deep pool and a thatched cottage.
The marine park has one of the largest coral reefs in the Pacific, which means that the waters surrounding the Dry Islands bubble with eagles, humpback whales, hammerhead sharks and Ridley olive turtles in danger of extinction. Guests can sail, snorkel and Seabob, and there will be a dive instructor on site, two equipped fishing boats and an adventure concierge designated to advise on the best opportunities to observe wildlife.
The 100% islands of energy used here will be generated by the sun; 100 percent of food waste will be recycled or composted; 100% of wastewater will be reused for irrigation; and 75 percent of the remote archipelago has been completely intact. Here you will not find single-use plastics and the retreat was built with certified sustainable wood.
"Impressive, but these green credentials also extend beyond" indicates the web. The Dry Islands Foundation supports local organizations for the conservation of land, water and wildlife, as well as community programs in the region. Next year, a field station will open for scientists to observe migratory humpback whales, and guests are encouraged to participate in research and conservation efforts.
The site specialized in tourism considers that, although perhaps the most luxurious, Dry Islands is not the only ecological place in the area. He points out that last summer, the Cayuga Collection opened a 14-room hiding place in 161 hectares of protected forest on Palenque Island, north of the Dry Islands, and next year Marriott International will launch a property on Pearl Island, a slightly more developed part of Panama as part of its Ritz-Carlton Reserve brand. There is eco-gold on these coasts.
