panama

Mention the country Panama and immediately images of the Panama Canal linking the Caribbean to the Pacific Ocean spring to mind.

It can also truly lay claim to an untouched coastline that merges into huge tracts of virgin rainforest. In fact the name reveals everything. Panama, in one of the indigenous dialects, literally means "an abundance of fish and butterflies".

 

The archipelago Bocas del Toro is spread over densely forested islands, small sandy atolls and two outreaches of the mainland that form protective arms from Atlantic waves. This is the area of Panama's oldest marine park - the Parque Nactional Marino Isla Bastimentos. In the north of the island there are nesting grounds for sea turtles while the southern coast consists of mangrove islands and coral reefs.

The jungle is a whole different world, so untouched in parts that even the elusive jaguar can still be found along with boa constrictors, sloths, rare birdsand the hanging lianas. The area is trying to balance tourism with the native way of life of the Ngobe-Bugle people who still have settlements in the area and are clinging to their traditional lifestyle.
