Panama is the pearl of the tropics. Although Panama is recognized the world over for its shipping canal, the country is much less known for its tourism wealth. As the isthmus that bridges the North American continent to the South, this tiny country is a study of unity amid juxtapositions. Not far from the urban jungle, with all the bubbling modernity of the capital city, one can find still-virgin rain forests of exuberant vegetation. The dream-like islands and beaches fringed by warm sea, thick jungle growth, sanctuaries for tropical fauna, and indigenous cultures with their traditions intact are other features that lure even the most hard-to-please travelers.
