What We Believe
We believe that travel leads to a deeper cultural understanding and compassion and therefore a better world.
Along the narrow isthmus bridging the Americas, the wildlife and terrain of two continents meld to form the striking contrasts of Panama. Ocean, forest, mountain and jungle set the stage for countless adventures.
Among Panama's 1500 islands you can go whale watching along the craggy Golfo de Chiriqui, snorkel coral reefs in the Caribbean or surf massive breaks off either coast. Island lovers revel in the white-sand beaches around the Comarca de Kuna Yala, while conservationists delight in the four species of sea turtle nesting on the country's beaches and wetlands.
Coursing along the spine of the isthmus, the mountains hold their own allure. You can kayak class-five rapids, hike through cloud forests and swim in crisp mountain streams. Adventurers trek up Volcan Baru, Panama's highest peak, for the view of both oceans at their feet.
Panama's jungles are some of the world's least explored areas. The villages of seven vibrant indigenous groups lie scattered among the country's 500 rivers and 22,000 sq km of rain forest, along with 940 bird species and 125 animal species found nowhere else in the world.
Panama's diversity doesn't end in the countryside. With immigrants from across the globe, Panama City is a 'melting pot.' You can sample French-Asian cuisine, then dance at clubs infused with salsa, merengue and Arabic-electronica. Charming highland towns, seaside fortresses and old-world festivals all lie within a day's travel. That Panama remains relatively undiscovered is just one of the country's many enticing features, and one that surely won't last forever.
