Miraflores locks.

I am pleased to welcome the presence of The Visitor at TOP RESA Paris tourist fair 2014. This bilingual English-Spanish information newsmagazine, published in Panama, is a wealth of touristic and cultural information for all those interested in this wonderful country of the Central American isthmus, whether permanent residents or short-term visitors.

With its historical relationship with Panama since the visionary initiative of Ferdinand de Lesseps, France has supported the social and economic development of Panama, with its ever-increasing business companies; its rapidly growing expat community (over 2000 strong); the French school in full development; the French Alliance as a promoter of the cultural scene; an 87% increase in the number of French tourists for the first half of 2014 (over 12,000 visitors), on the momentum created by the opening of the direct Air France flight Paris-Panama.

Come and discover Panama: you will feel quite at home there, while enjoying the beauty of a wide range of sites and activities.

Warm regards.

The Plaza de Francia (France Plaza) in Casco Antiguo was constructed between 1921 and 1922 to commemorate the French canal efforts led by Ferdinand de Lesseps and to honor the Republic of France.
