Panama is much more than its famed canal. The country’s curvy, narrow land mass serves as a physical—and cultural—land bridge between North and South America.

Its natural beauty is unsurpassed, with hundreds of deserted islands scattered through warm seas; densely forested wilderness; creatures as fantastical as any in Dr. Seuss’s book.

Panama City is one of the most cosmopolitan, culturally distinct, and enjoyable capital cities in all of Central America. Modern commercial buildings blend with cobbled streets and Spanish colonial architecture. West of the capital lies the Panama Canal, the legendary feat of humankind that unites two entire oceans.

If you’re interested in experiencing true rainforest’s you can visit the Soberania National Park, just 25 miles north of Panama City. The Bastimentos Marine National Park in Bocas del Toro offers some of the best diving and snorkeling in Central America!

Panama will change your life, so don’t wait!
