‘Panama Eco Wonderland’ is the title that has been designated to Panama in the article published by the world’s most famous magazine, National Geographic Traveler Magazine. With a photograph by Sergio Pitamitz, the article communicates that Panama is a bridge between continents, with just 51 miles from sea-to-sea. The Panama Canal —soon to become a literal nexus of global trade— will be expanded with two new sets of locks, as it is where 13,000 cargo ships cross annually.
The article also states that ‘in Panama, nature and indigenous culture are abundant, [and that] the canal-bordering tropical lowlands of Soberanía National Park ring with the cries of howler monkeys and the chatter of toucans.’ Boquete’s ad Colba’s attractions are also highlighted in the article. Panama shares the top exotic destination list along with Croatia, Mongolia, Perú, and City of Pittsburg, Pennsylvania in the United States.
EXHIBITIONIn addition to the article published by the National Geographic Traveler Magazine, Panama will have the opportunity to exhibit its tourist benefits before 900 journalists who will be participating at the World Congress of Travel Journalists and Writers, which will be held in Panama in 2014. This international event will generate over 100 articles, which will be released through the mass media, about the tourist offers in Panama.
