Due to its privileged geographical location, Panama features a unique biodiversity that is worthy of admiration by all nature lovers.

Hiking our nature trails with groups led by expert guides will make your visit to Panama a complete experience.

All set to celebrate the Children's Day parade

The Panama City Hall is planning "A Magical Adventure", a Grand Children's Parade to celebrate Children's Day on July 27th. The parade will begin at Rommel Fernández Stadium in the township of Juan Díaz and end at Heliodoro Patiño Park.

The Tourism Commission of the Panamanian Association of Business Executives (APEDE) announces the 18th Tourism Forum FOTUR 2014, which will be themed "Tourism in the Provinces: Realities and Challenges" and held from July 17 to 19 in Chiriquí. 

Panama has gotten on board with the sport of skateboarding. An attraction for the ramps and rails, board designs, speed, degrees of difficulty, and tricks are shared alike by Panamanian citizens and tourists who seek out a thrill on the various skate circuits.

They often share their skating knowledge and styles with those at varying levels, whether amateurs or pros.

Colorful skateboards swerving through the streets and avenues are most common during the summer season. One of the major events in Central America that brings together many youth is Culture on Wheels, which has been held on more than one occasion in the Figali Convention Center.

Panama invites you to spend some recreational time outdoors on its various skate courses.

Coastal Strip 3 Skatepark: designed by the renowned group California Skatepark and open to the public.

Skatepark Chorrera: built by the previous government administration to be accessible to the general public and featuring multiple sections.

Skatepark Punta Chame: a private park within Nitro City resort that offers all of the hotel's facilities and services, as well as chance to enjoy the sun, sand, and other sports.

Full Drop Santiago: located indoors inside Hotel Plaza, where you can spend the night or take a break and make use of the hotel's facilities.

Within Panama City, the most common areas to go skateboarding are Vía España, Costa del Este, Plaza Edison, and Casco Antiguo, also known as the Old Town.
