Panama is a country in Central America, bordering Costa Rica and Colombia (South America). It strategically forms the land bridge between North and South America and it controls the Panama Canal, which is one of the world’s most important shipping routes. Panama is a founding member of the United Nations, OAS, LAIA, G77, WHO and NAM.
Known as the "Crossroads of the World", Panama is strategically located to be the perfect venue for international conferences, business meetings, and incentive programs. Panama has a long tradition of hospitality. With the advent of tourism as a mainstay of the economy, it is prepared to create legendary experiences for your clients. Panama is a small country, full of natural attractions and a booming world commerce.
Panama has some of the world's most beautiful and biodiverse rainforests. As one indicator of biodiversity, Panama has over 950 species of birds, more than the U.S. and Canada combined. Furthermore, all this great nature is very accessible, with some of the best locations just 30 minutes from Panama City. With two coasts, countless islands and pristine beaches, it offers full-service resorts with experience in handling large meeting and incentive groups.
No trip to Panama can be complete without visiting the early settlement fortresses and churches established at the beginning of the 16th century: Portobelo, Fort San Lorenzo and the magnificently preserved ruins of Panama Viejo. And, of course, there is the Panama Canal, a marvel of engineering set amidst a spectacular rainforest environment. Panama also offers beautiful mountain sanctuaries, historical sites, impressive diving and snorkeling and unique Indian cultures living in the jungle with their culture and rituals still intact.
