Panama holidays by Cox & Kings

At the crossroads of the Americas, Panama is best known for the amazing feat of engineering that is the Panama Canal, which connects the Pacific Ocean and Caribbean Sea.

Yet the country has so much more to offer. Its amazing biodiversity and lush rainforests make it a birdwatcher’s paradise. It is possible to learn about the indigenous cultures of the Kuna in the San Blas islands and Emberá tribes in the Chagres National Park, while the Pacific and Caribbean beaches offer superb sun, sand and sea. Panama can also easily be combined with a visit to neighbouring Costa Rica.
