Panama is a land of magic and mystery filled with natural and cultural riches with a legacy that has shaped the world's history.

This Central American country, not only boasts an excellent quality of public services and infrastructure, charming and welcoming people, a canal considered the world's eighth wonder; but is blessed with splendid biodiversity found within magnificent rainforests, spectacular seas and seven ethnic indigenous groups which still preserve ancestral cultures and traditions.

The emergence of the Isthmus of Panama more than 3 million years ago was the most transcendental event in the evolutionary history of the western hemisphere.

Since then, a great variety of animal and plant species have been able to migrate from one continental mass to another through Panama, where many congregate to offer an array of unique biodiversity.

Panama is home to more than 960 species of birds, 220 species of mammals, 240 species of reptiles, 175 species of amphibians and over 10,000 species of vascular plants, making Panama a natural jewel to be discovered.
