Panama City TourPanama is bordered to the south of Colombia, to the north of Costa Rica. To Colombia, there is no road connection, to Costa Rica, there are two border crossings available.

The main highway is the Pan-American Highway that runs through all Panama. The Pan-American Highway connects North America with South America in itself and runs from Alaska to Tierra del Fuego. But the border between Panama and Colombia lays a gap in the jungle region of Darién, called the Darien Gap, which has not yet been closed. The reasons are mainly because the area is controlled by the Colombian guerrillas and also the North Americans who do not want this path opened to avoid drug trafficking. Nevertheless, Panama started closing the gap.

The second major road is the “Transmistica”, which runs parallel to the Panama Canal between Panama City and Colón. Besides Transmistica there also exists a railway line, which is now released for passengers (tourists to and from Panama City).

The narrow country Panama is the link between Central and South America. Panama is known worldwide because of the strategically important Panama Canal.

The population of Panama is mostly composed of mestizos (mixed race between natives and Europeans). Minorities are Blacks, mulattoes, Creoles and American Indians.
