Placed in between two oceans and connecting two continents, Panama is endowed with nature’s beauty like no other country. Its landscapes are incredibly varied: beaches, valleys, and mountains are ideal places to rest and to enjoy sun-filled vacations surrounded by the best that nature has to offer, and all within a few minutes’ drive from cosmopolitan Panama City.
Tourism to Panama has undergone a significant boom, as a result not only of the country’s promotional campaign, but also due to the expansion of the region’s aerial hub, which is now able to transport passengers from anywhere in Latin America to Panama, and from Panama onwards to any possible destination.
On top of this, the tourist experiences Panama’s impressive supply of touristic attractions. Rainforests on Panama City’s periphery, an enormous and incomparable variety of bird species, butterflies, and species of plants native only to Panama. Almost 57% of Panama’s territory is covered by rainforest reserves.
Tourists also enjoy what it is like to live and to be in a commercial crossroads, with world trade at their feet. Goods from the world over can be purchased in Panama very cheaply, thanks to the Panama Canal, the Colon Free Trade Zone, the country’s many shipping ports, and Panama City’s dazzling financial sector.
Thus, shopping tourism is a formidable opportunity for the visit to purchase products from anywhere in the world, even the most exotic or modern brands, and at unbeatable prices at some of the world’s largest shopping malls. The hallways of Albrook Mall alone are over a kilometer long, unparalleled anywhere in the Western Hemisphere.
