Since the creation of the world-famous Panama Canal in 1914, Panama has been at the heart of international shipping, serving as a connection point between the Pacific and the Caribbean.
In recent years, Panama has also become a major tourist destination as flights from the US have become increasingly cheap and more Americans begin to retire here (it’s also a big center for international banking).
Most travelers visit Panama either at the end or the beginning of their journey through Central America here and stick to the well-worn tourist trail of Bocas del Toro, Boquete, the San Blas islands, and Panama City but if you head to some of the lesser-known destinations you’ll be rewarded with better food, amazing scenery free of tourists, and lower prices.
This guide to traveling Panama can help you plan the perfect trip there without breaking the bank!
