THE “TRENDY” DESTINATION
Panama’s capital has plenty of attractions and outdoor experiences to offer to both visitors and locals, from the local coffee and cuisine to the natural wonders and historical sights.
There is so much to choose from, in Panama City that only a reliable DMC like QUETZAL MOTIVO can help you navigate the Central American megalopolis.
With its shimmering high-rise buildings and coastal location, Panama City in some ways resembles Miami. But it’s more often called the Dubai of Latin America, thanks to its attention-grabbing architecture and economic strength. Couple this big-city sophistication and growing business scene with the natural beauty just outside the city limits—not to mention the now-expanding Panama Canal—and it’s clear why more meeting planners are turning to this Central American hot spot.
The growth is indeed impressive. In the near future, Panama City will welcome a new convention center, a world-class cultural facility, a widened canal and a greatly expanded international airport. In addition, the capital city is in the midst of an unprecedented growth spurt in hotel development. Nearly every major international hotel company either has a hotel open in Panama City or has one—or more—in the works.
Panama is at the crossroads of the Americas and its ideal geographic position has led to the country becoming a major center of tourism, business and trade in America. Panama is projected to be one of the fastest-growing countries in Latin America and is a sought-after site for headquarters of multinational companies.
Panama City’s Tocumen International Airport is marketed as the “Hub of the Americas” by Copa Airlines.
