Panama is a country of contrast with a strong mixture of culture, architectural beauty, natural attractions, beaches, night life and a history based on pirates' pillages and a technical endeavor that has become an icon of what humanity can do.
The national territory has a great biodiversity and Panama continues to be a sought after destination for bird watchers and nature lovers.
Cities with magical architecture, towns lost in time and pirates raids sites are part of the attractions that you can appreciate during your visit. All the above mentioned together with the Panama Canal which is considered the eighth wonder of the modern world makes this country one of the best places to visit in the world.
Panama, due to its particular geographical situation has a bigger diversity of wildlife than any other country in Central America. It is a natural land bridge that joins the two continents. Panama is home to many South American species as well as wildlife from North America. Today, 29 per cent of Panama's territory is protected with 14 national parks, more than a dozen forestry reserves and 10 wildlife refuges. Panama houses almost 1000 bird species, as well as 220 different types of mammals and 354 types of reptiles and amphibians. The country also has hundreds of islands and protects miles of coral reefs that are the habitat of a great diversity of marine life. For those reasons we can guarantee that Panama is a natural paradise.
Leisure, colonial heritage, culture & ethnic, adventure
The City of Panama is a mixture of the historic and the modern blending its Cosmopolitan stile with areas that go back to the colonial era where visitors can find pleasant surprises. This is a city full of life and cultural wonders. It only takes a few minutes to get away from the city hustle and bustle to have an unforgettable ethnical-cultural experience, where so close to the city you can coexist with a group of indigenous people who keep intact their traditions and are surrounded by their spectacular natural environment. Within this wonderful space you will have the opportunity to enjoy adventurous pursuits in the caudalous rivers that border this incredible city.
Panama, never too far from the sea. Panama… one of the only places in the world where you can welcome the sunrise swimming in the warm waters of the Pacific and, hours later, enjoy a romantic sunset dancing to Caribbean rhythms.
The 2,500 kilometers of marine coastlines that embrace Panama continue to attract explorers and adventurers from all cover the world, like it occurred centuries ago with Columbus and the discoverer of the Pacific Ocean, Vasco Nuñez de Balboa.
The Caribbean Sea crowns Panama to the north and its beautiful beaches and blissfully isolated islands surrounded by astonishing clear waters are the perfect hideaway for a slow-paced, yet intrepid vacation. Bocas del Toro, to the west, is synonymous with relaxing and tropical charm; yet it is untamed and naturally blesses. Snorkeling in coral gardens and mangroves, sea- turtle and dolphin watching, and laying on a hammock under palm trees are part of the daily schedule.
