Panama might be meagre in size, but its dense biodiversity and diverse landscape make it feel at least 10 times bigger. Inside the country you'll find rainforests, sugary beaches, highlands, and coral reefs that seem to go for days. Another reason to go next year? To get your party on!
"In 2019, Panama City pledges to party like never before, marking its 500-year history with one raucous jubilee that you won't want to miss," said Lonely Planet.
