The beautiful country of Panama connects North America with South America. This geographical connection is reflected in the historical and cultural traditions of the two regions.
One of Panama’s most well-known sites is the country’s famous canal, which cuts the country in half and runs from the Pacific to the Caribbean. Visit this magnificent feat of engineering to discover one of the country’s most important assets, and understand the history behind the site.
Snorkeling and Diving
There are plenty of opportunities for snorkeling and diving off of Panama’s Caribbean Coast. The most famous destination in the country for underwater activities are the beautiful rainbow reefs near Bocas del Toro. Bahia de Almirante is one of the best locations in this area, because it is protected from harsh waves, and therefore the waters are normally crystal clear.
The Pacific coast of Panama offers some of the best surfing in the whole of Central America. There are places to suit all levels of experience, from beginner to professional level surfers. At more popular locations, such as Santa Catalina, you will find surf schools, but in other places, you may have the waves to yourself.
Panama offers excellent freshwater and saltwater fishing opportunities. Because Panama has two different sea coasts, there are plenty of sports fishing opportunities, including the chance to catch tuna, marlin and bass. Gatun Lake, where freshwater fishing is popular, is one of the largest artificially built lakes in the world. Gatun Lake was created during the construction of the Panama Canal.
Dolphin and Whale Watching
A variety of different dolphin and whale species can be found off the coasts of Panama. A number of tour companies help visitors enjoy trips out to sea, to view these magnificent creatures. Dolphins are more common on the Caribbean coast, whereas whales are usually spotted off of the Pacific coast. Some locations in the Caribbean even allow visitors the chance to swim with dolphins in the wild. June to November is the best time to spot either of these species.
Panama is well known for its large indigenous population. Guided tours are available which allow you to visit indigenous villages and experience indigenous traditions. There is also the opportunity to purchase traditional arts and crafts items, to take home as a memento of your trip.
