A privileged geographic location, an exquisite natural beauty, a rich culture, and an avant-garde capital connected with the rest of the world make Panama a vogue touristic destination as well as the new jewel in Latin America.
Over 750,000 tourists have visited Panama during the first five months of this year. This statistic represents an eight percent increase in the flow of tourists, compared to the same time period in 2010. Among these tourists, more than 500,000 arrived from distinct countries of the Americas. Colombia, Argentina, Venezuela, Ecuador, and Mexico stand out among the markets with the most volume and growth within the region.
At the International Tourism Fair of the Americas, Panama is present as an exhibitor, manifesting that this event is a magnificent opportunity to promote, before Mexican travelers, members of the tourist industry, and Mexican and international journalists, its endless touristic qualities, which have turned it into one of the tourist destinations that is continuously growing in Latin America.
Panama, located in the center of the Americas, offers a wide range of aerial connectivity, which makes it the “hub” of the region.
On the other hand, the Panamanian authorities believe that the flow of Mexican travelers will increase even more. Copa Airlines has expanded its flights frequency, which connects various Mexican cities with Panama. The weekly number of Copa flights, from Mexico City, have incremented from 21 to 28; from Cancun, from 21 to 35; and from Guadalajara, it maintained 7 flights while incorporating routes with Monterey, Puerto Vallarta, and San Juan de Los Cabos.
The route between Mexico and Panama will not only be covered by Copa, as Aeroméxico has also solicited authorization to start flying between Mexico City and Tocumen International Airport during the first trimester of the upcoming year.
