The skinny isthmus of Panama is best known for the giant Panama Canal linking the Pacific and the Caribbean, one of the great engineering feats of the 20th century. But the republic is also host to magnificent tropical scenery, including some of the world’s most untouched areas of rainforest. There’s a diverse wildlife population, with bird and mammal species found nowhere else on the planet. Fringing the jungle are 3,000km of beautiful coastline with coral reefs, islands and undeveloped beaches. There are also plenty of vestiges of the country’s wild history of pirates and smuggled gold: colonial forts, shipwrecks, cannons and towering city walls tell a colourful story.

Our insider tips for Panama

The sight of the massive bulk of a container ship passing through the locks of the Panama Canal: a surreal experience as the hull looms above the horizon.

Spending time on the autonomous San Blas archipelago with the cheerful Kuna Indians, who have managed to retain a simple, traditional lifestyle in harmony with their island environment.

Snorkelling in the Bastimentos Marine Park, where the coral reefs are populated by dazzling fish species and lobsters.  Meanwhile watchful caimans bask in the lagoons, alongside the turtles which nest on the beaches.

Exploring Panama City. The Spanish made it a hub for their gold plundering activities. Attacked and burnt by marauding pirates and power-seeking national fleets, it survived to become a centre for international commerce and banking, with a multi-national population.

What our experts say

Panama is a country of contradictions, where within twenty minutes of taking off over the futuristic skyline of one of the world’s largest concentrations of international banks, you can touch down in indigeous territories where coconuts were currency until not so long ago.
