Panama may be a small country—about as large as the state of South Carolina—but it excels in terms of hospitality and safety, offering travelers everything from luxury beach resorts to rainforest lodges. Gain the knowledge to promote Panama and its adventure, nature and cultural offerings with the Panama Specialist Program.
The program, created in association with the Panama Tourism Authority, provides knowledge about Panama that will be beneficial to both you and your clients. Your fun-loving clients will get a kick out of Panama City and its historic districts; the only rainforest in the world set within city limits; the Panama Canal; duty-free shopping; and its fine dining and nightlife. Your active clients can go hiking in the national parks or raft class II to V rivers, as well as enjoy the white-sand beaches. Meanwhile, nature lovers have plenty to see with 976 species of birds, annual sea turtle nestings, whale migrations, and 1,200 orchid species, all set in 12 national parks and 19 protected areas.
Panama also has a variety of accommodation options for your clients to choose from, with world-class properties in and around Panama City, as well as new boutique hotels and stylish B&Bs that have been added in recent years.
Learn about all of this and more with the Panama Specialist Program, available online at edu.recommend.com/panama.
