Panama, or more accurately, the Republic of Panama, is a country in the middle of Central and South America. Most famous for the Panama Canal, which links the Pacific with the Atlantic, Panama has attracted millions of visitors from all over the world who come for its natural scenery, rich history, amazing blend of cultures, and numerous recreational activities. To get the best and most authentic sense of Panama, why not check into an Airbnb instead of a sterile hotel chain that is probably replicated all over the world? Read on for Trip101’s list of the best Airbnb in Panama. We are here to help you find the Airbnb of your dreams!
