The Republic of Panama- the land where the sun rises in the Pacific and sets in the Atlantic!

Magnificent rainforests viewed best from the heart of the Panama Canal, the call of the white-faced capuchin; spotting the osprey hunting for peacock bass, body painting with the Embera tribes and witnessing the beauty of the wild on the transcontinental train; Panama offers all this and more. The southernmost city of Central America, Panama is situated on the strip connecting North and South America, bordered by Costa Rica, Colombia, the Caribbean Sea and Pacific Ocean. The lush forests of Soberania, rainforests of Chagres and bird watching at San Lorenzo await your indulgence. Adventure sports like snorkeling, white water rafting and diving feature on the to-do- list in Panama. Also, make sure you explore the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Coiba’s Reef, it’s definitely worth a visit.
