A tiny land of contrasts!

Panama is famous for the Canal, a marvel of engineering that joins the Atlantic and the Pacific Oceans, and its vital role in the fate of international trade. However, reducing Panama only to its Canal would be an discourtesy to the destination’s extraordinary diversity. The country boasts a vibrant modern capital city, one of the richest ecosystems on Earth, lush jungles, pristine beaches, bountiful archipelagos, indigenous tribes and wonderful Unesco colonial sites.

There are plenty of paradoxes. For example, the US legacy of modernity with skyscrapers neighboring historic colonial sites that played a major role in the Spanish conquest. Wealthy businessmen fly to their next meeting in their helicopter, while indigenous people paddle their dugout canoes in the Chagres national park. The Neo-Panamax canal expansion means even more business than usual, but you can pick a deserted island and play “Survivor” for the day, just like in the famous series (one of the sequels was actually filmed here). Half an hour from the concrete jungle of Panama City, you will encounter another type of jungle, made of lush tropical rainforest, inhabited by howler monkeys and toucans.

Our expertise

What our clients say about us...

Thank you again for Quetzal Motivo’s great work on our incentive program! As you know, the (…) executives, agents, associates, and guests had a very positive experience in Panama. This was due in large part to the Quetzal Motivo team! We did not have the familiarity of having worked with you on past client programs. To your credit, you made it seem like we’ve worked together for years… all from day 1!

All of your team often went over and above to deliver exceptional service to our client’s guests! That team, including all the guides, was professional, enthusiastic, and tireless in their efforts over a long period of time. It was helpful that they all had a great sense of humor as well! The Gavel team thoroughly enjoyed getting to know and working with your team! Throughout the planning process, and on the field, you were responsive, creative, and patient. We appreciate all that you did to help make the program a success! We look forward to working with you again soon!

Jim Bozzelli, Vice-President – Gavel International (Chicago)
