It’s hard to not rock out into a Karaoke set every time I hear Panama (if you don’t get that, I will feel a little old). Having said that, according to one survey, 70% of the nation hadn’t heard the song before, I mean what a catastrophe! But I digress. The country has a population of almost 4 million people, while it is the only place in the world where you can see the sun rise on the Pacific and set on the Atlantic. In fact, you can swim in one ocean and then the other in the same day! One of the biggest spots for tourists is the province Bocas Del Toro, a great location for a bit of scuba diving and a relaxing beach visit. In fact, there are a huge amount of things to do in Bocas Del Toro and it should certainly be part of your itinerary if you’re visiting Panama. Many people also choose to stop here and learn Spanish for a few weeks or months. Considering the prices are pretty low, this can be your temporary home in paradise, somewhere you will always look back on when back in an office as the dream location of your life. Much like many of the other local countries, Panama has adopted the US dollar and was actually the first Latin American country to do so.
