Navigating the Panama Canal alongside towering cargo vessels is an unforgettable experience, but this impressive feat of engineering is far from the only reason to visit Panama. Its swashbuckling colonial history is one of Spanish exploitation and wealth built from plundered South American gold. Pristine rainforests, diverse indigenous cultures, cool highlands, exquisite Caribbean islands and some of the best birdwatching in the world make this country a truly enthralling destination.
