International Panama

Central American Adventure

The Adventure

Situated between Costa Rica and Colombia, Panama serves as the land bridge between North and South America. The city of Chitré is among the earliest settlements in Panama, and central to many appealing sites in the country. One of the city’s cathedrals, La Catedral de San Juan Bautista, was built between 1896 and 1910. With its vast stained-glass windows and dark wooden beams, the cathedral offers refuge and peace for locals who slip in and out during the day for a moment of solitude and prayer.

In addition to visiting the legendary Panama Canal, your team will have a variety of options for serving the local community. Our mission partner, Operation Mobilization, will plug everyone into a service project to match their age, skills, and interests. Despite Panama’s growing economy, a large percentage of the population lives in poverty, and these families greatly depend on the ministries you’ll support.

We’ve had parent/child travelers looking to share an experience before high school graduation, women’s groups, a group of families from a congregation, men’s groups, and individuals seeking a new adventure. Truly any variety of ages, groups, and backgrounds are welcome. Your mission adventure concierge can give you more details, and help you discover which trip is best for you and/or your group.
