Panama, that thin strip of land joining the northern and southern halves of the Americas (yet running east to west), provides a 50-mile wide divide between the world's two largest oceans. And its narrowness has provided the ingredients for much of its history. The Spanish used it as a land bridge to transship Inca treasure en route to Spain. This attracted pirates whose exploits here made them household names. The rest, as they say, is history.

The French tried to buildĀ Travel Panama a canal, and went broke. The Americans, who proved the value of the isthmus during the Gold Rush, succeeded where the French had failed. And today, the Panama Canal, now run by Panamanians, produces much of the country's wealth. More shipping is registered in Panama than in anywhere else on earth.
