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.

PANAMA TRAVEL GUIDE
LanguageOfficially Spanish, but many Panamanians are bilingual, speaking English, indigenous languages, Panamanian English Creole, or more.
What to eatHojaldras (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 backA 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 FactImagine 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.
