Panama parades between continents and oceans, crossed by an incredible, man-made canal. Here, you can get lost and found again, on dreamy, deserted islands, in remote national parks, or amid the festivals of the country’s cosmopolitan capital. Come for picturesque beaches and wildlife-laden rainforests, stay for unique indigenous cultures, fragrant coffee farms and surprising scenery.

PANAMA TRAVEL GUIDE

DESTINATION FACTS

Language

Officially Spanish, but many Panamanians are bilingual, speaking English, indigenous languages, Panamanian English Creole, or more.

What to eat

Hojaldras (sweet fried bread) or carimañolas (stuffed yuca fritters) for breakfast, ropa vieja (spiced beef stew), sancocho panameño (chicken stew) and coconut cookies for dessert.

What to bring back

A Panama hat (of course!), traditional indigenous masks like the Emberá or Diablico Sucio masks and a bottle of Seco, the national sugar cane liqueur.

Fun Fact

Imagine watching the sun rise above the Pacific Ocean and set over the Atlantic. Panama is the only place in the world you can do so thanks to its unique S-shape and small size. For epic views of both oceans, hike up the impressive Volcán Barú or cruise the incredibly man-made Panama Canal, built in 1914 to connect both oceans.
