Destination Overview PANAMA

Panama, located at the “heart” of the Americas, serves as an airline hub for connections to any part of the world. It is a safe, stable and friendly country of four million inhabitants and 75.517 square kilometres. Panama means “abundance of fish and butterflies.”

The country impresses with a stunning natural beauty. More than 30% of Panamas land is protected by 15 national parks, 5 forest reservations and 10 wildlife reserves. There are 2 oceans, the Pacific and the Atlantic (Caribbean), bordering the country, over 500 islands within its boundaries, mainly located in the Caribbean, as well as hundreds of rivers all across the territory.

Panama possesses 7 of the 12 regions which maintain the balance of the main ecosystems of the world. More species of birds live here than in North America and Canada combined. Also, the country holds world records in the areas of bird watching and sport fishing.

It was on Panamanian soil where Spain founded the first city in the New World: Santa Maria la Antigua at Darién. Ever since, Panama is home to seven different indigenous cultures. The Panama Canal, an 80-kilometer long engineering marvel, which in addition has a spectacular watershed and abundant fauna and flora, is the pride of Panamanians and is greatly admired by visitors. Additionally, five areas of Panama have been declared World Heritage sites by UNESCO.

Panama, this is where valleys and mountains, a “sleeping” volcano, cool mountainous terrains, tropical areas with temperatures averaging 28 degrees Celsius, a desert, lakes and bird watching towers go hand in hand with each other. From the most luxurious hotels and restaurants, to cabins in isolated islands, indigenous cultures and modern, contemporary arts, extreme sports and cultural tours – there’s almost nothing that can’t be found in Panama.
