Beginning in the cosmopolitan, steamy capital of Panama City, you move on to the Canal Zone and the central Caribbean, with world-class birding and rafting; Kuna Yala, administrated anonymously by indigenous Kuna people; the Darien, a biological Eden; and Central Panama, blessed with fine beaches, mountains, pre-Columbian sites, and important colonial architecture. Among the guide's special features are mapped walking and driving tours, including a walk around Panama City's Casco Antiguo and a drive across the Continental Divide, and special two-page entries on topics such as the Panama Canal and parrots and macaws.
National Geographic and local experts provide insider tips on favorite or little-known sites and events, and dozens of sidebars highlight experiences that show you how to truly get the most from your trip. This comprehensive guide includes essential background information and the author's pick of hotels and restaurants.
Aimed at active travelers who want authentic, enriching, cultural experiences and expert advice from a trustworthy source, National Geographic Travelers provide ways for people to experience a place rather than just visit, and give the true feel of each destination not easily found online.

Heloise - Panama Culture Smart! The Essential Guide to Customs & Culture
, uitg.: Kuperard (2011), ISBN 9781857333398,
paperback, 168 blz., Ä11,50
Arriving in Panama, the broad cultural and ethnic diversity of this small country is one of its most outstanding and attractive attributes, and is reflected in its many customs. There is not just the beauty of the countryside to be discovered, but the variety of regional and local ways of life.
Panama has preserved much of its indigenous Indian culture and this unique way of life continues to thrive alongside the imprint of two centuries of development. Small though it is, Panama combines the latest technology and modern commerce with an environmentally and anthropologically rich heritage. This means that you can be in the fast-moving metropolis of Panama City, and yet be less than an hourís flight away from dense rain forests and the very different indigenous cultural life.
Despite continuous foreign domination in the past, the Panamanians now have complete sovereignty over their country. Masters in their own house at last, they are both proud and welcoming. Good manners are as important to them as the original laid-back Latin style, and you will find them friendly, polite, and relaxed.
Culture Smart! Panama hopes to enrich your experience by offering insights into Panamanian society and sensibilities, and practical advice on how to behave in different situations. It describes the historical background, values and attitudes, and Panamanian life at work and at home. The better you come to know these resourceful and hospitable people, the warmer your welcome will be.
