Luxe Magazine: Panama Travel Article

When you think of Panama, you might think of canals, hats and the fabled Darien Gap. But what you might not think of is just how stunning and traveller-friendly this country is, which is why we enjoyed writing about it so much in this article for Luxe Magazine.

Panama proved a fascinating topic to cover, from its slick modern skyscrapers to secluded tropical beaches. Such diversity characterises the small country, which offers heritage sites, angling in fish-crammed lakes and a broad array of museums. You could choose Panama if you wanted an adventure holiday, a city break, a lazy week by the ocean – or even a bit of all three.

Clearly, there is never a shortage of things to see and do in Panama, so this travel article for Luxe Magazine filled up quickly with fascinating facts and recommendations to make the most of any holiday there. Scroll down to read an excerpt from the piece, where you can learn more about the country, including the curious origin of its name.

Fabien Cousteau: Into the Deep

The legendary French explorer Jacques Cousteau inspired and educated generations about the wonders of our planet’s oceans. His career was prolific. During his lifetime, the trailblazing mariner helped develop pioneering scuba diving equipment, created more than 100 television documentaries and dozens of educational ocean-focused books, as well as the Cousteau Society environmental foundation – all of which have left a long-lasting impression. His shoes are difficult to fill, but as we discovered this month, his grandson Fabien Cousteau is not only honouring his grandfather’s legacy, but it also making his very own mark in the world of ocean exploration.

Like his famous grandfather, Fabien is a man of many talents: an ocean explorer, a documentary filmmaker, an environmental activist and a philanthropist. We interviewed Fabien for Private Air New York Magazine, catching the intrepid mariner as he resurfaced following more than a month spent living below the surface in an undersea laboratory for the Mission 31 science expedition. During our chat with the dynamic aquanaut, we spoke about the motivations behind his explorations, as well as his upcoming projects and initiatives (among them a documentary about his 31-day underwater mission and Florida’s soon-to-be-opened Fabien Cousteau Ocean Learning Centre).
