When most people think of Panama, the first thing that often comes to mind is the man-made marvel that connects the Pacific Ocean with the Atlantic Ocean, the Panama Canal and while this modern marvel that cuts across the Isthmus of Panama is definitely a huge draw and tourist attraction, it is far from the only incredible offering that the gateway to the Americas has to offer.
Providing access to two oceans (the Pacific and Atlantic), towering mountain vistas and incredible dense tropical rain forests teeming with an outstanding diversity of flora and fauna, Panama is a destination that will provide an abundance of activities and excitement as well as a lifetime of memories.
