The Westin Playa Bonita Panama is a beachfront oasis, with golden sands and the blue waters of the Pacific Ocean just steps away.
The natural splendor of the area & rainforest is not to be missed. Take a drive, cycle, or jog down the scenic Amador Causeway, a one-lane road that connects three islands. Outdoor enthusiasts can explore Punta Bruja Nature Reserve, fish off the islands of Las Perlas, or watch whales out in the Pacific.
Guests can visit famous sites like the Panama Canal’s Miraflores Locks. Once there, they can visit the museum, dine out at the restaurant, take in a movie, or step out onto a large terrace to watch ships cross the canal.
The Westin Playa Bonita Panama boasts four breathtaking beachfront pools providing a sun-baked escape overlooking the Pacific Ocean and a private white sand beach. Every day,a host of activities ranging from salsa lessons to kayaking to beach volleyball, are available as well as a fitness studio, spa & kids club.

Dear Kennedy friends and family;

This past year has been an incredible challenge for all of us, as we have navigated our way through a world wide Covid -19 pandemic. Our sincere condolences go out to all families who have lost a loved one.

With the ongoing rollout of vaccinations, we are very hopeful that life will return to some semblance of ‘normal’ as soon as possible. We sincerely hope that all of you have stayed safe and healthy this past year. We are so very grateful to all of our front line workers and the sacrifices they have made.

Your Kennedy Seminars team met regularly with CWT Vacations, plan and initiate a roster of CE vacations starting in January 2022.

For those of you who have been waiting patiently to resume travel, we present the following programs to you. As we have always done since our first trip in 1996, our vacation settings and CE scientific lecturers have been chosen to provide the best of travel and educational experiences. Be assured that we will follow all health guidelines when our programming begins in January 2022. As always, please feel free to reach out to us via email.

We wish you all a healthy, happy and safe spring and summer.
