Welcome to Panama, the heart of the Americas, a country with great contrasts, kilometers of beaches on both Pacific and Atlantic Oceans, pristine islands, fertile highlands, historic landmarks, great outdoor adventures, lush nature, indigenous tribes, a thriving, vibrant, cosmopolitan city and, of course, the Panama Canal. Panama is a real treat for nature and history lovers, foodies and it is a shopping paradise.
Chiriqui, described by many as the “breadbasket" of Panama, is comprised of fertile mountains and rolling hills, rocky rivers and coffee plantations, pristine beaches and islands with world class sports fishing and a thriving city conveniently close to all destinations within the province. Located in the western-most region of Panama, Chiriqui is bordered to the north by Bocas del Toro, to the west by Costa Rica, to the east by the Veraguas and to the south by the Pacific Ocean.
The Republic of Panama has a privileged geographic position bordered on the north by the Atlantic Ocean and the south by the Pacific. It therefore has a plethora of islands varying in sizes and includes uninhabited pristine islets, national marine parks, as well as up-and-coming hipster and backpacker islands with a great nightlife. Some Caribbean islands have a different feeling due to the influence of African culture, while other Caribbean Islands are inhabited by local indigenous tribes preserving their pre-Columbian traditions. The most popular islands in Panama are Bocas del Toro, San Blas (Guna Yala), Taboga and the Pearl Islands. The Pearl Islands is an archipelago that is comprised of 90 islands and 100 islets with the most popular being Isla Contadora, Isla San José, Isla Viveros and Isla Saboga.
