Tourism

Panama has a unique blend of attractions, from the volcanic sand beaches of the Pacific surf to the white sand beaches and tropical reefs of the Caribbean. Visit nearly 1500 coastal islands. Explore the interior’s vast temperate mountains, a multitude of unique rainforests, arid lowlands, lush mangroves, lakes, rivers and waterfalls. Experience a diverse collection of wildlife, reptiles, birds, sea turtles and other rich aquatic life combined with a growing multi-cultural population with a rich colourful history.

From the Famous to the Infamous, visit the land of ancient indigenous peoples, explorers, conquerors, pirates and more, much of which has changed little since the times of Christopher Columbus, Sir Frances Drake, and Captain Henry Morgan.
