It’s a fact. Panama is unbelievably photogenic. There are thousands of beautiful images to be found of this fine isthmus when scrolling through the ‘gram. Here are 10 Instagram accounts to fall in love with Panama, one photo at a time.

Azul Paradise is “that” over-the-water bungalow resort in Bocas del Toro (affectionately shortened to ‘Bocas’ by adoring locals). The name of this boutique property means, “blue paradise” in Spanish, yet the views will leave you feeling anything but.

7. TheBeachBell

Another Panama convert, travel writer Rosie Bell accidentally found herself here in 2015 and that was the start of an enduring love affair. Between the food, nature, the energy and of course, the beaches, she couldn’t believe her eyes. She was so impressed that she left London and moved there entirely. She wrote her first book ‘Escape to Self‘ while sitting and pondering in Panama City’s various cute cafes. She also writes and talks about Panama for Forbes Travel Guide, Fodor’s, and pretty much anyone who will listen.
