Panama -a tiny slither of land that string up Costa Rica and Colombia. When I was in high school back in the Philippines we were once in Geography class discussing about Panama canal and I was so disinterested that my seat mate said, " you'll never know one day you will be passing the famous canal".  Sure I did! Not only did I pass through the canal but I lived along the Panama Canal and on a nice evening I can watch and count ships passing by.

Panama is famous for a few things: The panama hat and the Panama Canal. Actually, the panama hat is not at all Panamanian but made in Ecuador. The Panama Canal used also to belong to the US but has just been recently turned over to the Panamanian authority.

A few years back when I was living in Panama City I would say that is is very cosmopolitan but I have heard now that since the hand over of the canal tourism has decreased. 

The country itself has some rainforest and you can go snorkelling and scuba diving. Sport fishing is very good in Panama. Most of the prized catch are caught along the Panamanian waters.
