Perched beside a mangrove wetland on the chocolate sand shores of Playa Panama, El Mangroove is 17 acres of pure sexy. The whimsical resort features 85 sleek units, two mouthwatering restaurants, a spa, a gym and a long, cabana-flanked swimming pool, all dreamed up by It architect Ronald Zürcher. Aside from carnal pursuits, the focus is on food and drink. By day, the Matiss restaurant offers light and playful dishes in an oceanfront sandbox setting. By night, spectacular cocktails are stirred up in the pulsating, open-air lounge before some truly epic feasts. Try the Worcester glazed short rib with apple-jalapeño puree and rosemary breadcrumbs, but save room for the fierce chocolate cheesecake for dessert.
Ensconced between the opulent Pagagayo Peninsula and the bustling Playa del Coco, Playa Panama offers a tranquil setting to swim, kayak, snorkel, paddleboard, bike, boat and hike. It’s also a great base to fly through trees and explore volcanoes. Golfers will be well served by the nearby Arnold Palmer signature golf course, and serious scuba divers shouldn’t miss a trip to the shark-friendly Bat Islands. For an urban adventure and hiking combo, try the Santa Rosa National Park & Liberia City Tour
