Your Destinations

Panama

Panama is an exotic destination that boasts many facets. Its beaches and its exceptional nature are favourites among travellers in search of exciting new scenery. Relatively understated, Panama is a country with a certain charm. Go on a Panamanian adventure punctuated by the historical remains, the natural wonders and the traditions. In Panama, there are no shortage of curiosities, but what comes to mind is probably the famous Panama Canal, a grand structure with a rich history.

Colombia

The land of the El Dorado is undoubtedly a beautiful synthesis of South America: magical landscapes of the Andes, colonial cities rich in history, remarkable memories of pre-Columbian cultures, the picturesque coffee region and a friendly and proud population of its ancestral traditions. Enjoy a tour to the end of the world in a country often ignored by tourists, Colombia. The fourth Latin American country, this original destination will allow you to combine discovery and relaxation. Take in the colourful alleys, colonial architecture and coffee plantations and fall in love with the charm of this unique destination.
