Overview

There's more to Panama than its canal; this bridge between Central and South America is host to a fascinating mix of cultures. From the traditional Kuna in the San Blas islands to the fusion of Latino, Caribbean and Indian influences in the Bocas region, the country offers remarkable diversity.
Panama is the latest ecotourism hotspot, with rainforest covering a third of its area. While twitchers delight in 350 species of bird - more than anywhere else on Earth - others can enjoy spectacular butterfly migrations. With excellent fishing, rafting and hiking, this is a haven for those with a passion for the outdoors.

Discover:
