Panama is a curious but exciting combination of cultural influences. It is located in the center of the world, and its islets represent the last part of the natural bridge between the North and South American continents.
Due to its east-west spread, Panama is the only country where you can see the sun rising over the Pacific and setting over the Atlantic Ocean. Of course, where there are two oceans, there are 2490 kilometers of coastline and over 1000 islands and islets, so Panama is one of the popular destinations for everyone who loves the sun and the sea.
The Bocas del Toro Islands is the most beautiful gift of the Panamanian Caribbean. It is a paradise that will overshadow you with its coral reefs, multicultural diversity, natural beauties that surround this archipelago and its exotic flora and fauna. On the main island of Colon is Bocas Town where there are many restaurants and shops, some of them on the water. When night falls, there is an opportunity to meet Bocas as the capital of nightlife in this part of the Caribbean.
Nearby is the island of Bastimentos. It is a National Park and a completely different world with mangrove trees protecting coral reefs and glistening beaches where turtles rest after their long journey from Nicaragua. Ride catamarans and peek behind mangroves, enjoy spectacular snorkeling while corals and fish surround you.
The Panama Canal rainforests are just minutes from the city of Panama, and are considered the most accessible rainforests in the world. It is part of the former zone of the American Channel, now Soberania National Park and serves as a barrier for the 80km long Panama Canal.
In addition to the canal, you should also go to El Vale, a small town that is located no less than in the large crater of an extinct volcano. There are thermal springs near this city and this is one of the few places in the world where you can see a Panamanian golden frog. Nearby is the famous forest of "cube" trees, which for some reason only in this place grows in a square shape.
The attraction of an Indian culture in a tropical paradise is the San Blas Islands, which are the choice of many. With about 365 palm trees covering the islands, you have a magical view of the glistening white sand and indescribably beautiful water.
Panama's high tourist season, which lasts from mid-December to mid-April, is characterized by droughts on the Pacific side. During these months, there is relatively little rain in Panama City and in the southern parts. North of the mountains on the Caribbean side of Panama, it rains all year round.
Welcome to paradise, prepare for the time od your life!
