Other Need-to-Know Information about Panama
The wide array of possible tourism experiences immediately set Panama apart from it’s neighbors, and even many other countries. One can arrive in Panama City and enjoy the trappings of a sophisticated metropolis - art, cuisine, fashion, etc. Alternatively, travel out of the urban areas and you have options for natural beauty that are nearly endless - two oceans, mountains, jungle, incredibly diverse flora and fauna, and more. Lastly, but certainly not least, there is the engineering marvel of the Panama Canal!
The culture and history of Panama will not disappoint either. From the indigenous peoples, whose civilizations date as far back as 2500 BC, through Spanish conquest, colonization, and into modern day, Panama’s culture is obviously broad and deep. You will be immersed in this culture wherever you go throughout the country, from the food and clothing, to the holidays and artisanal crafts.
As you can likely already imagine, the geography in Panama is quite varied. You can explore kilometers of coastline on both the Pacific Ocean and the Caribbean Sea, and further inland there is dense jungle, upland plains, mountains, and even volcanoes! The highest point in the country is actually the Baru volcano, at 3,475 meters. The weather, however, is relatively consistent across the country. Their are two distinct seasons - the rainy season, which runs from May through November, and the dry season, which spans December through April. While the higher elevations do experience chillier temperatures, the majority of the country enjoys fairly consistent year round daytime temperatures between 30 and 33ºC. The most popular time to visit Panama, including any sort of Panama motorcycle tours, is during the dry season.
Entry into Panama is also typically quite simple. Many countries, including much of Europe, can enter with nothing more than a valid passport. United States citizens, as well as citizens from many Caribbean nations and a few other countries, will be required to obtain a tourist card. The remainder will need to obtain a visa for entry. Be sure to check with the Embassy of Panama for current requirements!
