Yandup Island Lodge
Simple yet idyllic lodge featuring over-water bamboo bungalows set around a tiny private island.
With rustic over-water bungalows spilling out from the edge of a tiny, palm-shaded private island, the idyllic Yandup Island Lodge is the essence of simplicity: bamboo walls, thatched roofs, local textiles, ceiling fans and hammocks. There’s no hot water, but nor do you need it in the balmy temperatures of this tropical archipelago.

Panama was far more interesting than what we thought it would be, particularly the Museum of Contemporary Art and the Bio Diversity Museum.CY, Heathfield
Each part of my trip had a special moment. I loved both the new and old parts of Panama city, but my highlight there was seeing sloths while walking up Cerro Ancon. In Bocas del Toro it was being the only person there on a stunning beach. The best moment though has to be staying at the Canopy Tower and experiencing the wildlife. I'll never forget the sound of the Howler monkeys.TF, Wakefield
"Most memorable was watching mother and baby two-toed sloths from bedroom window at Canopy Tower. Early morning on the roof of Canopy Tower listening to howler monkeys as the sun rises over the forest.”NW, Kidlington
Highlights: “Locks on the Panama canal and Panamax vessels up close.”MC, Fulham
"Bocas del Toro was great fun and frivolous and a great journey there by boat."GS, Bushey
Because of my interest in shipping, the Panama Canal partial transit was fascinating.JB
Most Memorable Moment?: Too hard to choose one. Panama Canal Transit was a lifelong ambition.NA, London
Most memorable experience: “Tranquillo bay was a cut above everything else. Staying on Waidup (near Isla Tigre) was also special.”MH, Chiswick
We didn't realise the partial canal transit would be in such a big boat with loads of other tourists - not a problem, but would have been good for this to be pointed out in advance.NF, Tunbridge Wells
Top experiences in Panama - going through the canal and exploring Panama City and surrounding area. I was surprised to find that Panama is not just the Canal Zone!
We enjoyed all locations which were very diverse and equally memorable.IB, Chesterfield
