Twenty years ago, the Caribbean coast of Panama was practically unknown. Nowadays travelers, surfers, and adventurers alike find crystal waters, exotic flora and fauna, and a rich cultural heritage in destinations such as Bocas del Toro, San Blas, Portobelo, and many others. Panama is a country where the concept of exotic begins in its name. The indigenous language describes the name Panama as abundance of fish & butterflies, and this concept is true as visitors will quickly discover for themselves. An abundance of wildlife can be found in Panama’s many national parks. Panama is world famous for it’s 48 mile canal that connects the Pacific Ocean with the Atlantic Ocean. Each year over a million people visit the canal and are able to witness this engineering marvel at work. Panama is very proud to have this magnificent creation operating 365 days a year, enabling the world’s cargo to be shipped efficiently and safely to new destinations. Three million years ago, the Isthmus of Panama emerged from the sea and changed the world forever. It divided an ocean and joined two continents together, triggering one of the most important natural evolution events in the history of the world. Today, this narrow land bridge in Central America is home to more species of birds and trees than the whole of North America.
