Panama attracts tourists through its teaming rainforests and its hundreds of islands and sun drenched beaches. However it also has some great opportunities for wildlife spotting such as the white-faced capuchin monkeys, sloths, pumas and jaguars. The birdlife is also magnificent and the habitats consist of ocean, forest, mountains and jungle. With 15000 islands it’s also a great place to snorkel and watch whales. There are also four species of seat turtle.

Travel Safe

Most of Panama is very safe. People in rural areas are generally extremely friendly and very helpful. If you want to visit Latin America, but are paranoid about security, Panama might be a good place to cut your teeth.However, as with most countries, there are a few spots that warrant some caution. Most of the city of Colon is considered dangerous, and some neighborhoods in Panama City are a bit sketchy, in particular El Chorrillo, Curundu and El Marañón, poor and crime-ridden areas. The old colonial quarter, Casco Viejo (also called San Felipe) has a lingering bad reputation among travellers and some Panamanians, but is gentrifying rapidly. During the daytime, San Felipe is perfectly safe for foreigners. At night, the main streets and plazas, as well as the district of bars and restaurants toward the point, are also safe, but visitors should exercise caution as they move north along Avenida Central towards Chorillo.
