The southernmost of the Central American nations, Panama is located southeast of Costa Rica and northwest of Colombia. The ease of travel and wide diversity of experiences make Panama one of the most attractive emerging tourism destinations in the world! In as little as one week, visitors can swim in two different oceans, experience beautiful mountains and rainforests, learn about traditional native cultures and take advantage of the vibrant urban energy of Panama City.
The indigenous meaning of the country’s name translates as “abundance of fish, butterflies and birds” and we think this perfectly reflects Panama’s reputation as a paradise for water sports enthusiasts, fishing fanatics and eco-tourists. As the isthmus connecting two massive continents, Panama’s flora and fauna are incredibly diverse and the country boasts more than 10,000 species of plants & animals and the Western Hemisphere’s second largest rain forest (only the Amazon is larger)!
