Panama

“An important meeting point” – thus we could describe the narrow isthmus that bears the name of this understated but interesting nation. Any visit starts at Panama City and it would be a challenge to ignore that nearby and imposing feat of engineering: the Panama Canal. The large ships passing through are impressive but this is just the start of the discovery here, the isthmus also representing one of the most biodiverse areas of the planet as it is literally the place where north meets south. Away from the centre we can find a quiet countryside with beautiful sandy beaches and high misty cloud forest, pastoral farmland and dense jungle. Whether you wish for a more urbane experience or one that’s a little more rustic, Panama accommodates.
