About Panama

Panama, often considered a true melting pot, embraces a diverse range of ethnic groups due to its historical reliance on commerce. Notably, during the monumental construction of the Panama Canal, numerous individuals from mainland China and the West Indies migrated to assist with the project, and their descendants have since settled in the region. The population also includes indigenous tribes, Europeans, as well as smaller communities of Jews, Muslims, Hindus, Buddhists, and Rastafarians.

While Panama may often be overlooked by tourists who opt for the more popular destinations like Costa Rica or Guatemala, it boasts stunning natural beach towns and a unique tropical allure of its own. Unlike some other Latin American countries, Panama places importance on coastal development, attracting visitors who seek an authentic experience of Latin American culture. Additionally, Panama is home to the Kuna people, one of Latin America’s most autonomous indigenous groups. For those seeking an off-the-beaten-path adventure, Panama offers a plethora of captivating experiences that won’t disappoint.
