Panama’s strength resides in its diverse cultural offerings. Within Panama City, there are Spanish ruins dating back to the 16th century and neighborhoods that are over 300 years old. The country has seven indigenous groups, many of which still live in traditional villages, and pockets of regional ethnic diversity virtually everywhere. There is also the Panama Canal, which continues to impress visitors as one of the world’s most astounding engineering feats. These attractions allow travelers to get a closer look at the cultural fabric of Panama.
