Panamá is an exciting country on the isthmus linking Central and South America. In Panamá City modern skyscrapers and businesses sit side by side the traditional colonial buildings of the Casco Viejo district. The Panamá Canal, beautiful beaches and surrounding by tropical rainforest are all within reach. First world infrastructure means access to the finest airport, sanitation, and medical care.

Panamá is literally the “crossroads of the world”—cosmopolitan, modern and innovative yet steeped in tradition and history, exposing students to a culture very different from their own but retaining the safety of a “first world” environment. It is a progressive, diverse, and stable country with world- class medical facilities for routine treatment and in case of emergencies.

  • Marin Horizon School has a track record of many years experience in the country with its highly successful eighth grade cross-cultural exchange program that sends students to Panamá every June and receives Panamanian students every September to participate in school and family life.
  • In June, 2016, ¡Hola Panamá! launched its successful middle school summer immersion program. Fifteen middle school students representing four different Bay Area schools traveled to Panamá with four chaperones to experience a two-week language immersion and community service program that was specifically designed for their age group, their interests and their varied language skills.
