With comprehensive research, accompanied by stunning photographs, "The Rough Guide to Panama" has a key focus on the country's fascinating and wildlife-rich national parks, with a park-by-park breakdown of their various attractions and a full-colour section to help you identify the astonishing variety of fauna. The guide also takes a detailed look at Panama's diverse cultures and their histories, traditions and festivals, with insights into everything from devil dancers in the Azuero Peninsula to coffee-cupping in the highlands of Chiriqui.

About Sara Humphreys

Sara Humphreys is a freelance researcher, writer, and educator. Her main claim to journalistic fame is that she simultaneously worked for the Sun and the Guardian, albeit in Botswana. Otherwise, she has toiled, traveled, and tarried in various countries in Latin America, Africa, and Europe, and, when not energetically bailing out a dugout in Panama, can be found swinging in a hammock in Barbados.
