Panama City is the capital of Panama, a small nation that connects the continents of North America and South America. It is located just north of the equator, which technically makes it a part of the Northern Hemisphere. Panama City is one of the oldest cities in Central America, as it was founded in 1519 by Spanish conquistadors. Its location was strategically chosen, as it is on the Pacific Coast. This location makes the city an ideal port for commerce, trade, and travel. Today that history continues due to Panama City’s status as an economic powerhouse for Central America. In part, due to its geographic location, which is currently right next to the Panama Canal, and also because of its more lax banking laws.
Panama City is known as an international city driven by a large banking industry and many import and export trading opportunities. Additionally, because of its great location and international clout, Panama is also known as a melting pot of cultures. It attracts talented individuals and tourists from around the world to enjoy its great weather, lengthy beaches, and complex cultural history!
