Panama: Wellness, Beaches and Culture
Panama is known worldwide for its 48 miles of canals that connect the Pacific Ocean with the Atlantic Ocean. Each year, more than one million people visit the Panama Canal and witness this marvel of engineering. In Panama City, you can enjoy quality restaurants, exciting nightlife, and diverse scenery. Panama has a cultural multiplicity that makes it unique in the region, which also contributes to the constant presence of visitors from all over the world. The origin of this unique cultural mix is undoubtedly the crossroads the country has always had, but so is Panama's intense connection to the sea that makes it very similar to a Caribbean island. It is particularly rich because, although it comes from very diverse cultural origins and traditions, there is an atmosphere of tolerance and harmony that has always prevailed in this beautiful territory.
