Panama City is the capital and largest city of the Republic of Panama. It has a population around 1.4 Million people. The city is the political and administrative center of the country, as well as a hub for international banking and commerce. Panama City has a dense skyline of mostly high-rise buildings, and it is surrounded by a large belt of tropical rainforest. Its ethnic and cultural diversity, represents one of the main tourist attractions of this vibrant and contrasting city.

Panama City is located at the pacific entrance of the Panama Canal, one of the most iconic attractions of the Republic of Panama since 1914. But Panama City offers much more the see than the Canal. Its wide gastronomic and hotel offering, multiple cultural attractions and the best shopping centers of the region, make Panama City a modern city prepared to offer the best to all its visitors. Another points of touristic interest are: Panama Viejo (first city founded on the American Pacific coast), Casco Viejo or Casco Antiguo, the Biomeseo at the Causeway, Cinta Costera and the Protected Areas (Metropolitan Natural Park, Soberania National Park, Camino de Cruces National Park and Chagres National Park).

Panama’s Tocumen International Airport (currently expanding), the largest and busiest airport in Central America (located in Panama City), offers daily flights to major international destinations. More than 20 international and recognized airlines from the Americas, Europe and Asia, offer direct flights to Panama City. In addition, the city currently has a Metro line, and the second line is expected to open in 2019. It also has transportation services through metropolitan busses and taxis.

Panama City was chosen as the 2019 Ibero-American Capital of Culture, same year in which the 500 years of foundation of Panama City will be fulfilled. The original Panama City was the starting point for expeditions that conquered the Inca Empire in Peru. It was a stopover point on one of the most important trade routes in the history of the American continent, leading to the fairs of Nombre de Dios and Portobelo, through which passed most of the gold and silver that Spain took from the Americas.
