Panamas Countryside in Pictures

Here are just a few mixed impressions from Panamas “Countryside”. There are images from Chiriquis Highland like Boquete to some images from a variety of beaches, some from the peninsula of Azuero like Las Tablas and also some from the mountains in Veraguas like Santa Fe and the beauty of San Franciscos church and also some from as far as the Bayano lake (in no particular order). So please sit back and enjoy the pictures from Panamas countryside. For some descriptions of these and many other travel destinations in Panama please see our other website pty4u.com.




Here are some facts from Wikipedia about Panama: The dominant feature of Panama’s geography is the central spine of mountains and hills that forms the continental divide. The divide does not form part of the great mountain chains of North America, and only near the Colombian border are there highlands related to the Andean system of South America. The spine that forms the divide is the highly eroded arch of an uplift from the sea bottom, in which peaks were formed by volcanic intrusions.

 

Panama has a tropical climate. Temperatures are uniformly high—as is the relative humidity—and there is little seasonal variation. Diurnal ranges are low; on a typical dry-season day in the capital city, the early morning minimum may be 24 °C (75.2 °F) and the afternoon maximum 30 °C (86.0 °F). The temperature seldom exceeds 32 °C (89.6 °F) for more than a short time. Temperatures on the Pacific side of the isthmus are somewhat lower than on the Caribbean, and breezes tend to rise after dusk in most parts of the country. Temperatures are markedly cooler in the higher parts of the mountain ranges, and frosts occur in the Cordillera de Talamanca in western Panama.

 

Tourism in Panama is rapidly growing. It has maintained its growth over the past five years due to government tax and price discounts to foreign guests and retirees. These economic incentives have caused Panama to be regarded as a relatively good place to retire in the world.[citation needed] Real estate developers in Panama have increased the number of tourism destinations in the past five years because of the interest for these visitor incentives.
