Panama is located in southern Central America, on the border with Costa Rica and Colombia. It is the land in this zone that is home to most of the sites with UNESCO World Heritage status.
See the famous Panama CanalThe famous canal that connects the Atlantic Ocean to the Pacific Ocean runs very close to the capital. The Panama Canal is a mythical place. It is both a historic place, a testament to successful engineering and a source of inspiration for any traveler who sees the boats go by. It measures 80 km and consists of canals, locks and lakes. The Miraflores site is a good vantage point to watch the maneuvers. Find out about the times the large container ships go by, this is really impressive.
Admire the architectural heritage of SpainIf you want to walk in the footsteps of the conquistadors, head to the historic site of Panama Viejo, where you can explore the ruins of the city, built in the early 16th century. At that time, extensive protective measures had to be carried out. In the north, in the port cities of Portobelo and San Lorenzo, you will see the impressive fortifications with their cannons. Old Panama is also a historical site with many attractions.
Discover the paradise of the San Blas IslandsThe islands of San Blas have a special status among the landscapes of Panama. It is the area of the Kunas Indians, who live mainly from fishing and coconuts. This archipelago brings together several hundred islands and just as many smaller islands. The sailing ships on their way to Colombia often stop here to stock up on fish. Numerous tours are also offered from Panama. It is a small, fragile paradise, so it is important that you behave respectfully towards the people.
Fresh air and lots of nature in BoqueteBoquete is a colorful town located on a plain at the foot of the Baru volcano. It is the capital of ecotourism, You will be spoiled for choice when it comes to outdoor activities: if you want to go hiking, rafting, horseback riding or soaking in hot springs during your stay in Panama, Boquete is for you.
