Discover Panama

 
  • Panama City

    Panama City is worth a visit; especially for its city center (Casco Viejo) where the buildings date back to the colonial era.

  • The center of the country

    Hispanic traditions are alive and well in the Azuero Peninsula, home of the traditional carnival, which takes place every year. The small village of Chiguirí Ariba features extraordinary flora and fauna, and is also worth visiting.

  • The Panama Canal

    The history of the channel is related to the creation and development of the country itself. Visitors can hop on a boat and see the canal up close for themselves. Nearby sites also contain many natural attractions of the tropical jungle.

  • The islands and beaches of Panama

    Tourists to Panama are still relatively few in number, so the many islands and beaches have space on them for travellers to play. The islands of the Archipelago de las Perlas are undoubtedly a must see. Better enjoy them now before the secret’s out!
