Panama is the southernmost of the Central American nations and is located south of Costa Rica and north of Colombia. The Panama Canal bisects the isthmus at its narrowest and lowest point, allowing passage from the Caribbean Sea to the Pacific Ocean. A chain of mountains in the west, moderate hills in the interior, and a low mountain range on the east coast marks Panama. There are also extensive forests along its fertile Caribbean coast.

Nature and History

Panama’s location is at the southernmost range for many North American species. Fortunately, nearly 30% of Panama’s land is protected in national parks, forest reserves, and wildlife sanctuaries. This provides excellent opportunities to see the country’s wealth of flora and fauna.  

But it’s not only nature that pulls you in. The country has a fascinating history as a Spanish colony, as well as being a transit route for the conquistadors’ riches from Peru. Since pirates often plundered it, so many intriguing historical sites exist.

Culture | Panama

Panama is a country where tribal communities of indigenous peoples survive with fortitude. The largest, the Kuna, have a degree of autonomy over their homelands. This includes the beautiful islands of the Kuna Yala (San Blas) archipelago. They warmly welcome visitors for a taste of paradise at their delightfully simple lodges built by the communities.

Bocas del Toro & The San Blas Islands

Bocas del Toro and the San Blas Islands are located on the Caribbean coast of the Panama Isthmus. Since these islands are outside the hurricane belt, this is an ideal destination for sailing yachts. Bocas del Toro is a modern second home and primary residence for many Americans and Europeans.

You’ll discover beautiful islands, deserted beaches, fishing, scuba diving, and surfing. The San Blas Islands, an archipelago of 365 islands to explore, offers exceptional sailing and is also home to the indigenous Kuna Indians.

The Panama Canal

The Panama Canal is a genuinely fantastic engineering achievement and the trials and tribulations of building it make a remarkable and unforgettable story. Imagine sailing right through this giant monument dividing the Americas. You can do this and more on a Panama yacht charter vacation arranged by Luxury Yacht Charters.

Panama has more than 1500 islands to explore and 1000 miles of coastline. So, it’s easy to see why touring Panama by private yacht charter is the way to go!
