Panama records strong increase in visitors from Europe

From January to May 2017, Panama received a total of 102,388 European tourists, a 25.4 per cent increase on the same period in 2016, according to data from the Panama Tourism Authority.

Visitors come mostly from Spain, Germany, France, Italy and the Netherlands, who choose Panama for its nature and culture.

At the same time, Panama Journeys is offering guests an exclusive dining experience at the La Vista restaurant set in the hills of Taboga Island, a volcanic island located in the Gulf of Panama.

Also known as ‘the Island of Flowers’, Taboga boasts spectacular views of Panama City and the ocean.

Guests will take a boat ride from the beginning of the Panama Canal on a private chartered ferry before enjoying a six-course meal at the restaurant prepared with locally sourced ingredients and accompanied with a glass of champagne.
