Regions of Panama

Panamá will be usually seperated in nine provinces (provincias) and two territories (comarcas ).

The provinces are : Panamá, Chiriquí, Bocas del Toro, Coclé, Colón, Darién, Herrera, Los Santos and Veraguas. There are also two independent territories : Ngöbe-Buglé and Kuna Yala (San Blas Islands)

Actually the politically seperated provinces are not very important for travelling through the country. Therefore we have seperated Panama in 5 travel regions , which you should visit.

Panama can be divided in 5 regions:

  • Panama–City: Including the panama-canal, although it reaches the Caribbean cost.
  • The central Caribbean: The beginning of the canal and province capital Colón. In the south of Colón, are beautiful beaches located.
  • The central Pacific: Good reachable from the capital, the central pacific coast pass over to the south-west, into the peninsula Azuero.
  • West-Panama: Is consisted of the provinces Veraguas, Chiriquí and Bocas del Toro. West-panama adjoins to the border of Costa Rica.
  • East-Panama: The east encloses the wild province Darién, which reaches to the border of Columbia.

The most important cities of panama are those , you can find more informations about them at the chapter about the region.
