East of Costa Rica and west of Colombia, Panama is a narrow isthmus connecting North and South America. Named the "#1 Place To Go" in 2012 by the New York Times, Panama offers an incredible variety of world-class attractions. Discover exotic tropical rainforests, beautiful mountain refuges, Caribbean-style beaches, 1000 islands, seven living Indian cultures, a sophisticated capital city, Spanish colonial historical sites, and the famous Panama Canal. Visit the Miraflores Visitor's Center to witness 5,000,000 ton vessels rise and drop more than 50 feet to make their way from one ocean to the other. The canal is currently under expansion to double its capacity.
A sovereign, fully democratic country, Panama is a top destination for adventurists, eco-tourists, history buffs, beach lovers, families, and romantics. Panama offers free emergency health care to anyone who enters the country through Tocumen International Airport. English is widely spoken and the U.S. dollar is the official currency. A passport valid for a minimum of 6 months from the day of arrival is required for U.S. citizens traveling to Panama.
Panama City offers a cosmopolitan area, Manhattan-like skyline, world-class casinos, and houses the only rainforest in the world within city limits. Along the Pacific Coast, just outside of the city, begins a Hotel Zone with a string of beautiful white sand beaches and sapphire blue waters. Panama Escorted Tours allow visitors to explore San Jose and the surrounding areas, including the Caribbean Coast.
