Exploring Panamanian Culture
Panama links Central and South America and is a bridge between the Atlantic and the Pacific Oceans. Geographically, it is part of Central America, but Panama culture has been historically influenced by the Caribbean and South America. Known as “the place of many fish,” Panama is a tropical paradise with beaches, rainforests and exotic animals, birds, and sea life of unparalleled beauty. Sometimes called the “Eighth Wonder of the World,” the Panama Canal connects the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans and transformed this country into an international trade hub.
