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.
Volcano Valle de Antón – El Valle de Anton is the crater of a volcano. Due to its height of around 600 meters above sea level, the climate is less warm than in the coastal areas. Waterfalls and thermal baths in the primary forest invite you to visit this unique part of Panama.
