The capital city of Panama and of the Panama Province, Panama City is a sprawling metropolis and a widely popular tourist destination. The city is served by Tocumen International Airport
, which is located just outside of the city center.
Of course, the most popular attraction in Panama City is the Panama Canal
, an impressive canal system that connects the Caribbean Sea to the Pacific Ocean. This canal has been very important for international trade in that region, as well as a tourist destination complete with a dedicated museum and visitor’s center.
The Museo de la Biodiversidad
was designed by the famed architect Frank Gehry, and it’s a beautiful building worth exploring over the course of a relaxed afternoon. As the museum is located on the Amador Causeway, it’s a great location in which to get a sense for all the different components of the city while enjoying a great view of the city’s skyline.
