Teaching English in Panama: At a Glance
A pivotal trade route for over 500 years, Panama is surprisingly lacking in tourist traffic. As a result, its beautiful beaches, mountains, rain forests, and colonial towns remain largely untouched and waiting for those looking for a destination off the beaten path.

Panama's landscape is about as diverse as it gets. This small isthmus can be traversed quickly, and in just a couple weekends visitors could take in the Panama Canal, Panama Viejo (founded by the Spanish in 1519), Casco Antiguo (Panama's artistic center), and the tropical rainforests.
