Think of Panama and most people think of the Panama Canal. However, Panama is host to some magnificent natural scenery, including some of the most pristine areas of rainforest in the world. Panama and Panamanian Resorts are great for wildlife photography tours, and bird watching tours will enjoy the 940 recorded bird species found nowhere else on the planet.
The developing tourist industry is concentrating on eco-tourism. Although not well known for its beaches, Panama has almost 3,000km of coastline, perfect for snorkeling tours or scuba diving tours. The coral reefs and unspoild sands are as gorgeous as any of the more celebrated beaches in the region, with excellent hotels nearby. These are located both on the Caribbean in the north and on the Pacific in the south.
