Panama travel guides

Known as the ‘crossroads of the Americas’, Panama is home to a mix of Spanish, Afro-Caribbean, American and indigenous cultures. This heritage is reflected in the ancient ruins and crumbling colonial buildings right through to the modern skyscrapers and fine restaurants.

Join the cargo vessels and cruise ships that navigate the awe-inspiring canal, sample the country’s coffee in the lush, green plantations or discover unique Caribbean islands. Whether you're planning a honeymoon, a family holiday or a larger trip through Central America, our travel guides are an invaluable resource.
