Check Out 6 Most Beautiful Islands in Panama 

Panama is a country on the isthmus linking Central and South America. The Panama Canal, a famous feat of human engineering, cuts through its centre, linking the Atlantic and Pacific oceans to create an essential shipping route.

In the capital, Panama City, modern skyscrapers, casinos, and nightclubs contrast with colonial buildings in the Casco Viejo district and the rainforest of Natural Metropolitan Park. Panama is one of the safest countries in Central  America.

Of course, it is also one of the most economically viable — with the geographical advantage of the Panama Canal, it is considered a world centre and it is home to some fascinating and beautiful islands. Check out some of these islands below;
