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.
