Since the building of the Panama Canal more than 100 years ago Panama has become an internationally renown centre of shipping, commerce and financial institutions. It is now becoming just as famous for tourism. The country is small enough that you can swim in the Caribbean and Pacific ocean in the same day, climb a mountain where you can see from coast to coast and yet large enough to find your exact type of vacation, whether its jungles, beaches, cities or mountains.

Panama City, a combination of super modern urban capital with an historical old town, to the beautiful beach islands of San Blas – Guna Yala just a short trip away. The mountain town of Boquete with its rivers, forests and temperate climate is in great contrast to the Bocas del Torro archipelago of islands with a distinct colorful Caribbean culture.
