(LanguageCorps.com) Amongst many other things Panama is a meeting place. As the southernmost country in Central America, Panama bridges the gap between North and South America. The Panama Canal introduces the Atlantic Ocean to the Pacific. Between the two coastlines, lush tropical rainforests meet modern and thriving cities. Within Panama City, the historical beauty of Casco Viejo and the Old Panama Ruins co-habitate with cosmopolitan bars, restaurants and shopping. North meets south, old meets new, nature meets civilization, in one of the most exciting and unique destinations in Latin America.
