Just like the Panama Canal connected the Atlantic and the Pacific Oceans, the formation of the isthmus of Panama by ancient volcanoes connected the continents of North and South America. Lots of fascinating stories of how the world was changed here in Panama, by humans and by Mother Nature—great themes like Changing the World and Connecting the World for corporate meetings and events 😀. In short, it’s a pretty fascinating destination.. . Swipe for more pictures. .
