Panama is a great attraction for both foreign and domestic tourists, who are drawn to the country's beaches and provincial sites.
A project to build a touristy seaport in the Terraplén area to boost tourism development in Old Town was presented by the developer Riccio & Riccio Asociados.
Ecotourism is mostly sought out by foreigners from the United States, followed by the United Kingdom and Canada. All tour guides must be certified through university studies or courses approved by the Panama Tourism Authority.
Besides being a place to do exercise and drop a few extra pounds, go for a stroll or see who is available to pick up, the Coastal Strip now also offers tourist info in the latest tech medium.

The Panama Tourism Authority (ATP) authorized a direct contract for $1.3 million with the Argentinean company Conde Marketing SRL to “promote tourism in Panama.”

Signed by ATP deputy director Ernesto Orillac, the technical report states that the contract will be effective from January 1 to December 31, 2013, and its function is “to advertise Panama internationally, by broadcasting boxing fights scheduled to take place in Argentina.”
