One of the world’s most celebrated innovations in engineering and seafaring travel increased ship-traffic through the Panamá Canal and foot traffic to beautiful Panamá itself. Cosmopolitan Panamá City boasts theaters, breweries, and concert halls while tourists can also enjoy folk performances in the Azuero Peninsula or colonial architecture in Panamá Viejo. The country’s musical scene possesses the familiar sounds of Central American and Caribbean music and has been instrumental in birthing international genres like reggae en Español and its own versions of cumbia, calypso and salsa.
