Designed for the needs of adventure travelers, National Geographic's Panama Adventure Map is the most comprehensive map available, covering the entire country, with expertly researched background information, travel tips and descriptions of popular destinations. A user-friendly index of selected towns and protected areas, including National Parks, nature and forest reserves, wetlands and wildlife areas, will help you select areas to explore. The marked road network of major and minor roads, including the Pan-American Highway, airstrips and railway tracks will get you to your desired location, including those outside of major tourist hubs. Some of the pinpointed recreational, historical and cultural features include areas for surfing, fishing and diving, hiking trails, archeological sites, reefs and mangroves.
An inset map of Panama City provides in-depth detail of the capital, including its hospitals, churches, synagogues, monuments, cemeteries, embassies and other notable buildings. The Casco Viejo (San Felipe) area is shown with even greater detail, for those planning a self-guided walking tour. An inset map of the Panama Canal region details this must-see engineering feat, that connects the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. Some of the points of interest shown are the Canal's locks, visitor centers and the Panama Railway connecting Colon and Panama City. This abundance of specialized content makes the map the perfect companion to National Geographic's Panama Traveler Guide or any other guidebook.
Every Adventure Map is printed on durable synthetic paper, making them waterproof, tear-resistant and tough — capable of withstanding the rigors of international travel.
