In Panama it is said that the authentic country is found at the other side of the bridge that crosses the Canal, the country of the ancient traditions. In certain way, it is true since very close to the capital city in the first town located along the interamerican road the country ways are still kept and a certain happiness is found among the colors and spirit of the interior. Starting in La Chorrera, at few kilometers from the capital city up to San Carlos located at the limit of the province of Panama, in practically all towns visitors may enjoy the diverse and extraordinary samples of the Panamanian folklore, especially during the town fairs. In the country, the religious beliefs are mixed with the cultural traditions, particularly on the dates of the saints venerated by the respective towns whose anniversaries are fully celebrated. These towns form part of the region of the Arco Seco which offers dozens of beautiful white sand beaches.
