15 the most beautiful places to visit in Panama; Becky Moore; Global Grasshopper
Gateway from Central to South America, Panama sits on a narrow isthmus sandwiched between the Pacific Ocean and the Caribbean Sea. It is one of few places to sense harmony between scientific progress and wildlife. Here the huge metropolis of Panama City merges seamlessly into verdant tropical forests. With an unfussy, laid back vibe and some truly wonderful spots to visit; including trendy surf resorts, sleepy mountain enclaves, paradise-esque archipelagos and dramatic diving spots, Panama seems to delight both tourists and backpackers.
