The Visitor and Focus on Panama recently participated in the first Latin American World Travel Market fair held in Sao Paolo, Brazil. Some 14 companies travelled with the Panama Tourism Authority (ATP) as part of its official delegation.
Panama is an attractive market for Brazilian tourists because the Brazilian currency, the real, is nearly equal to the dollar and the shopping dollar goes a lot farther here than in South America. According to Alexis Zapata of the Viajes Arcoiris travel agency, Brazilian tourists on average spend $3,000 in the country on a four day trip, not including hotel and plane ticket.
Visitors to the fair enjoyed picking up copies of The Visitor and Focus on Panama at the ATP stand.
