Tidy, charming, and friendly, the buildings are decorated with Spanish-colonial architecture lining pristine beaches.

A window into the country’s wilder side, Panama’s main festival reveals the breadth of cultures in this small country.
Panama loves a good rum-soaked time and the best of such is Carnaval, held during the four days that precede Ash Wednesday.
At dusk, floats and musicians are paraded on parallel streets. Crowds pack the sidewalks and fireworks light up the night. The queens appear on Saturday night and their coronation is held on Sunday. Monday is masquerade day and on Tuesday is “polleras” day (the typical shirt).
Each day begins with members parading in street clothes and singing songs that poke fun at the rival groups. Jokesters toss tinted water, blue dye and shaving cream at the opposing side. No one is spared – so dress expecting to get filthy.
