This province, Panama’s third largest, is predominantly known for its stunning coastline and rural rolling hills: a 200 kilometer mountainous stretch of white sand beaches, surfer-approved crashing waves, and lush forested terrain.
A trip along the coast will reveal a handful of charming towns and postcard-worthy scenic overlooks. Watching a seductive sunset over the ocean is a must-do, however road tripping through the picturesque landscape isn’t too hard on the eyes either. As you follow the coast southwards, you’ll meet the adorable towns of Las Tablas, Pocri, Pedasi, and Tonosi: rural Panama at its best.
This region is known for its sancocho, a flavorful soup regarded as one of the national dishes.
Take the time to appreciate the Los Santos province today, because by the time the secret gets out, it might be too late.
