Panama: Scuba Diving
Miami of the South
Portobello is the jumping off point for Caribbean Coast activity nearest to Panama City. Just under two hours from Panama City, Portobello is an access point to several marina projects along the stunning Caribbean Coastline. For scuba diving lovers, Portobello has one of the best areas of Panamanian Caribbean coast reefs, close the coast and not too deep. In this area several scuba diving schools have been established. San Blas Islands and Bocas del Toro on the Caribbean coast. Great coral reefs and visibility. Pacific spots like the Pearl Islands also offer some snorkelling but less reef and normally lower visibility.
