Panama is a land of contrast. Imagine one of man’s most impressive modern feats of engineering, in the middle of one of the most biodiverse countries on earth. Aside from the canal that makes it famous, Panama is a country full of hidden natural treasures, diverse indigenous cultures, and lessons in sustainability and environmental leadership.
Neither truly part of North nor South America, Panama’s long relationship with the U.S. yields a fascinating blend of Hispanic and English-speaking influences, which, combined with some of the world’s most thriving modern indigenous traditions, creates a beautiful patchwork of cultures at the very heart of the Americas.
Official Language: Spanish
Fun Fact: Panama is the only place in the world where you can see the sun rise on the Pacific and set on the Atlantic.
