Dubai of Latin America

Arguably the most modern of Central American cities, Panama City boasts a shimmering skyline of glass skyscrapers.
Venture out of the city with trips to Isla Taboga (Taboga Island Beaches & Iglesia de San Pedro), Chorro de La Chorrera (in La Chorrera) and Gamboa (Asociacion Panamericana para la Conservacion & Chagres River). Spend the 22nd (Thu) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. There's lots more to do: make a trip to Panama Canal, browse the different shops at Albrook Mall, get engrossed in the history at Museo del Canal Interoceanico de Panama, and explore the striking landscape of Soberania National Park.

With a lively banking sector and a booming tourism industry, Panama remains one of the most powerful nations in the Americas, though it's also one of the smallest by land area. The country boasts coastlines on both the Pacific Ocean and the Caribbean Sea, so it's not surprising most Panama holidays include some form of seaside entertainment. With outstanding beaches all over the country, it's easy to find an ideal spot to swim, snorkel, dive, fish, sail, or simply kick back on the sand with a few cold drinks. The country's best-known landmark and one of the world's most significant shipping routes, Panama Canal tops most tourist itineraries--many choose to see this engineering wonder by traveling the length of it by train.
