The diasporic populations that have arrived to Panama for hundreds of years from all over the world, merging with indigenous groups to the region, have created a multiplicity and richness in identity, tradition and language that have shaped today’s Republic of Panama. This crossroads continues, as more people make their home in Panama, each bringing a wealthy background. As a continuous point of contact and inherent cross-cultural identity, the people in Panama in even the most rural of destinations are accustomed to visitors and open dialogue with people who might end up making this their home.
