Lush greenery, exotic animals, astounding waterways and heart-stopping views of the seashore all characterize the land at the tail end of North America. In fact, if you ask any of Panama’s citizens what the name of the country means, they’re likely to tell you that Panama translates as “a land full of trees, fish and butterflies.” It is a country teeming with breathtaking beauty – from colorful flowers to lush mountain landscapes – but these natural wonders are only one of many reasons to travel to Panama.
Panama is, indeed, a tropical land rich in flora and fauna, but it is also a place that played a pivotal role in world history by becoming the gateway between the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans.

Transcanal Panama Canal Cruises have long been a dream of adventurers, history buffs and the curious alike.
