Land of many faces

 

The path between the seas. The Panama Canal is just one of the many wonders of this tiny isthmus stretching between Costa Rica and Colombia. Forever hidden in the shadow of its much-visited neighbor, Panama’s world-class birding, hiking, snorkeling and surfing spots are putting this country on the map for other reasons besides the famous canal.

 

Panama’s position as a narrow land bridge between North and South America has given it a remarkable variety of plant and animal life being home to over 940 species of birds! The Darien Jungle to the far East of Panama stretching to the Colombian border is home to several indigenous populations (Embera, Wounaan, and Kuna) who live in settlements scattered along the numerous river valleys.

 

The turquoise waters of the Caribbean’s archipelago Bocas del Toro offer world-class surfing and snorkeling on any given day. From the very cosmopolitan Panama City to the Kuna Yala comaraca, where life beats to a different drum, Panama is truly a land of many faces.
