What to do in Panama: Where You Can See the Sun Rise in the Pacific and Set in the Atlantic.

This small Central American country is much more than the famous Panama Canal. With a rich history that involves Indians, Spanish conquerors, pirates, gold and lots of biodiversity, Panama is a true treasure to be explored.

You can't miss visiting historic Panama City, with its charming Casco Viejo, a UNESCO world heritage site. You also can't miss the Metropolitan Natural Park, the only tropical park in the city, and, of course, the spectacular Bridge of the Americas. The San Blas Archipelago and Coiba Island are unmissable for nature and diving lovers.


Panama's official currency is the balboa, although the US dollar is widely accepted. The official language is Spanish and Brazilians need a visa to visit the country.


Panama is a constitutional democracy with a well-developed service economy. Despite facing challenges such as income inequality, the country has one of the fastest economic growth in Latin America.

Traveling to Panama can be an economical adventure. The country offers a wide variety of accommodation and gastronomic experiences to suit all budgets. Furthermore, transport within the country is relatively cheap.


Now, let's get to the fun fact of the title: in Panama, you can see the sun rise over the Pacific Ocean and set over the Atlantic due to its peculiar geographical orientation. This is a geographic rarity that many of you probably didn't know about.
