Panama shares the #2 ranking on “Top 5 Places in the World for Women to Travel Solo” with our next-door neighbor Costa Rica. The list was featured in an article on FOX News Travel and was written by Susan L. Eckert, the founder and president of AdventureWomen.

The list includes:

  1. New Zealand
  2. Costa Rica and Panama
  3. Vietnam
  4. Iceland
  5. Alaska

Susan shares that “If you’re looking for a Central American destination, I highly recommend both Costa Rica and Panama. There are so many things to do here and again most people speak English. I suggest starting in Panama City where you can schedule day trips and tours to different attractions like the Panama Canal. There are lots of adventure activities for active women like zip-lining, hiking, white water rafting and even bungee jumping!”

A solid endorsement for adventurous female travelers out there looking to explore the world on their own!
