Panama, although considered a small country, is a magnet of biodiversity with some of the most exotic species on Earth. Almost half of its land surface is covered with mountain cloud forests, rainforests and mangrove forests. This ecological abundance is due to Panama’s geographical location that connects both North and Central America, near northern South America and close contact from both the Pacific and the Atlantic Oceans.
