PROMTUR Panama participates in the Anato Tourism Showcase
The event will take place in Bogotá, Colombia from April 28 to 30 and the Central American country will be one of the invited destinations
The Panamanian delegation will present to some 43 thousand Colombian and foreign participants, the tourist activities that it will lead this year and in the future under the Master Plan for Sustainable Tourism 2020-2025 (PMTS). The plan reactivates Panama's Tourism, Conservation and Research (TCI) strategy that was applied more than 20 years ago and places the country's conservation and sustainability efforts in the foreground, along with its extraordinary nature, culture and historical offerings, capitalizing in the general security that Panama offers.
The updated strategy presents three focus areas: The Green (nature), Blue (oceans) and Cultural Heritage of Panama.
The Cultural Heritage narrates the history of Panama as the Bridge of the World, connecting world-class attractions such as the Casco Antiguo (UNESCO World Heritage Site), the famous Panama Canal, the first interoceanic railway, among others. In addition, the Cultural Heritage shows the cultural diversity of Panama, offering experiences through the three main cultures of Panama: its 7 indigenous groups, its Afro-Caribbean heritage, and its colorful Spanish colonial culture.
The Green Heritage reports that Panama is a country with extraordinary biodiversity: with more species of birds, reptiles, mammals and trees than the United States and Canada combined. The iconic experiences of the Green Heritage take the visitor through National Parks, protected areas and private reserves in the tropical forests of Panama. One third of the country is protected.
The Blue Heritage tells that with the creation of the land bridge of the Isthmus of Panama, the Atlantic and Pacific oceans separated, becoming two different oceans in terms of tides, climate and marine fauna. The experiences offered in the various ecosystems on the Blue Heritage routes include whale watching in the surroundings of the Coiba National Park, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and the admiration of turtle conservation projects in the Pacific Ocean, as well as relaxation in the turquoise Caribbean waters of Bocas del Toro.
PROMTUR Panama will be located in pavilion GS 18-23, with stands number: 2520, 2524, 2526, 2528, 2530, 2619, 2623, 2625, 2627, 2629.
