Tocumen airport is one of the busiest in Latin America. Around 20 million passengers pass through here, connecting it to multiple destinations around the world.

1.- The Pacific and the Caribbean are just a few kilometers away.
There is a saying that in Panama you can have breakfast in the Pacific and lunch in the Caribbean and it is literally the truth. You can organize your trip to enjoy both seas -with the differences that both offer-, exploring more than a thousand islands that make up the Panamanian insular territory.
2.- Panama City: a cosmopolitan capital
Many nationalities live in the country and it is evident when walking through its streets and finding all types of cuisine. Many have their roots in Afro-Caribbean and Asian combinations that are an explosion of flavors for any palate. If there is something extraordinary in Panama it is how the food has created its own identity.

The most expensive cups of coffee in the world is produced in Panama. The Boquete area (along the border with Costa Rica) is world famous for the grains that are harvested there. It is relatively common to meet the best tasters in the world on the streets analyzing coffees and visiting farms. In the city, there are cafeterias like Unido, Kotowa, or Mentiritas Blancas where you can have an extraordinary cup of coffee.
According to sources from the Ministry of the Environment, “Panama is home to approximately 3.4% of the world’s amphibian species, 2.3% of its reptile species, 9% of its known bird species and 4 .8% of mammal species. In Panama alone, a total of 220 species of freshwater fish and 1,157 species of marine fish have been identified.
