Travel with Project C.U.R.E to Panama
Panama, officially called the Republic of Panama, is a country on the isthmus that links Central and South America. Panama is 29,157 square miles in size and hosts a population of 3.6 million people, nearly half of whom live in Panama City, the country’s capital and largest city. Backing from the United States allowed for Panama’s secession from Colombia in 1903 as well as the construction of the Panama Canal between 1904 and 1914, which has since become an essential shipping route linking the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. Total transfer of the Canal from the U.S. to Panama in 1977 in conjunction with increasing growth in commerce, banking and tourism has allowed Panama to become the second largest and fastest growing economy in Central America. Panama has a rugged geography of mountains, more than 500 rivers, and tropical jungle that covers nearly 40 percent of its land area.
