In this Panama Special Report, Panama: Province by Province, we go all-in, covering the entire country of Panama, including each of it’s 10 provinces.
To help you traverse through this great country—be it for work, play, or relocation—we’ve put together this A-to-Z country issue to help you get to know each province in depth—its culture and history… its economy and current state of infrastructure… its personality… and everything in between.
The first thing everyone learns about Panama is that it’s a small country on a small strip of land between two much larger continents. With an area of only about 75,000 square kilometers, Panama is smaller than South Carolina and 39 other states. Nine Panamas could fit into Texas alone.
Don’t be fooled by its small size.
Panama is a diverse country—geographically and culturally. The country’s vast wealth of nature includes rain forests, mountains, lakes, islands, coral reefs, and beaches. This is one of the most biologically varied and dense areas in the world.
In this Panama Special Report, we bring you Panama’s Pearl Islands.
The islands—the uninhabited ones, at least—are coated in a blanket of thick tropical marine forest with some areas of rare mangrove. This forest, together with rugged topography, cliffs, and rocky headlands, gives the islands a Jurassic Park feel. Innumerable sea birds wheel and dive around the cliffs, and dense tropical foliage hangs over the water, creating a wall of green that encases the beaches.
In this Panama Special Report, we bring you one of the most fun and eccentric neighborhoods in Panama City; El Cangrejo.
El Cangrejo’s mix of people from all over the world offers an interesting mix of cultures. Many regard El Cangrejo as Panama City's most lively and expat-friendly area. The neighborhood is walkable and offers an abundance of tree-lined streets under which to grab some shade and perhaps a bite to eat. If you are interested in living in Panama City, this is one of the first places we recommend you look.

Since being handed control of the canal from the United States, Panama has blazed a trail of economic advancement and prosperity, a course it’s still on today. The results are plain to see: a recently expanded canal, skyscrapers left and right (and new ones being built), and additional lines for the city metro system getting established…
Panama is synonymous with growth and is well on the way to achieving its goal of becoming the logistics and transportation hub par excellence for the region.
