Aug 18, 2007
Panama has a wide range of tropical landscapes including pristine beaches, rain forests, cloud forests, over 900 species of birds, 1500 species of trees and over 7000 vascular plants. Without a doubt, Panama is a real tropical paradise for natures lovers and outdoors adventurers.

Panama, the ideal country for the closest contact to a rainforest. Its the only Latin America capital surrounded by rainforest less than ten minutes away from its centre and with a easy access to three National Parks.

If your idea is to get in the rainforest, Panama offers you Nationals Parks, declared Biosphere Reserve and Mankind Heritage. Our Rainforest have the richest variety of flora and fauna around the world where more than 10,000 species of plants and 1000 species of birds live together.

You can walk and enjoy the Rainforest of the Baru Volcano National Park, and International Park La Amistad in Chiriqui Province Highlands.

Its privileged geographical position has allowed this strategically placed small nation to grow into an ever more important crossroad of the world, since before Columbus discovered America, then for the Spanish Conquistadors and now as a universally recognized trading and business centre.

Panama City has large shopping districts such as the Via Espana, Central Avenue, etc, where you can find Boutiques, Bazaars, Gift Shops, Jewellery Stores and many modern shopping Malls. The Free Zone, located in Colon, 45 minutes from Panama City by car, is the World's largest free zone and duty free shopping area.

Besides its abundant green areas, are its tropical jungles traversed by extensive rivers with their abrupt trajectories. In some of them that run towards the Pacific and the Caribbean there are appropriate scenarios for river rafting. If once you dreamt of doing it, this is the best moment to experience it in Panama.

Panama has a wide range of rapids classes. We have class III rapids in the Charges River and class IV rapids in Mamoni River, and in Chiriqui province you can practice Safe River rafting, all year long in two natural scenarios: Chiriqui River, a class III, IV and V!! River, available all year long, affording a real challenge during the months from April to December. Tour Operator in Panama provide everything that is necessary to enjoy this adventure, and help you find in these deep rivers the degrees of difficulty that visitors demand.

The same is true of the opportunity to practice this exciting adventure thanks to the extensive trajectory of the river and certain demanding stretches where you can experience the greatest challenge of your life with nature.
