Panama is a country in Central America and is in fact a narrow land bridge that connects North and South America. Embracing the more than 1.600 islands off the Atlantic and Pacific coasts, the tropical country is known as the location of the Panama Canal, which cuts right through the country. The country is known for its natural beauty, for its diverse plant and animal life, including hundreds of bird and tree species, and for its vibrant music and culture.

Panama is home to several Native American peoples such as the Guaymí, Kuna and Chocó, became the first Spanish colony on the Pacific Ocean. Celebrated as 'the door to the seas and the key to the universe', it served as a staging post for the Spanish conquest of the Inca Empire in the 1530s, and until the 19th century it was a transfer point for gold and silver bound for Spain. .
