The slaughter of indigenous tribes in many countries have resulted in drives to protect those which still exist, so as to protect not only the culture and livelihood of these people, but the history and indigenous traditions of countries on a whole. This is no different in Panama, where 7 indigenous tribes still survive and can be visited in their villages for rare encounters with indigenous Indian tribes.

Quite a few provinces in Panama have been identified for their natural resources and protected natural environments. Some of these include offshore islands like Pearl Islands and San Blas Islands, and places like Bocas del Toro, Colon-Portobelo, Boquete, Chiriqui and El Valle. Panama City, despite its modernity as a developed cosmopolitan town, is of historical significance to Panama due to its historical buildings and ruins in Casco Viejo which sits at the mouth of the Panama Canal as well as national parks like Chagres National Park which serves to conserve the hydrographic basin of the Canal and Las Cruces Trail National Park which was the route used for transporting Incan gold to Spain during the days of colonization. Casco Viejo, in particular, was designated a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1997 for its value as the oldest city in Central America, history and architecture which reflect different eras of French and Spanish occupation, coupled with Caribbean attributes.

The towns of Chiriqui, Boquete and El Valle, offer an alternative to Panama City, as locations for ecotourism projects, adventure tour vacations, peaceful living and retirement. El Valle, for example, is located on a crater which exploded about 5 million years ago, and now offers fertile land for healthy living. El Valle lends itself for an exciting vacation for quiet retreats, hiking, mountain biking, canopy tours, bird watching, horseback riding, waterfall baths at Chorro del Macho and tours to the Piedra Pintada where massive boulders are covered with petroglyphs. Boquete is known for the longevity of its inhabitants, often attributed to the clean air, hassle free living and natural foods produced for consumption. The San Blas Islands comprise about 378 islands located in the Caribbean Sea off the coast of the province of Colon. By air, the islands are 20 minutes away from Panama City and can be readily accessed by regular scheduled flights and tours. These islands are the home of the Kuna Indians who have conserved their language, dress, music, folklore, livelihood and system of government. The islands are ideal for wonderful cultural encounters, as well as snorkeling, diving, sailing and sport fishing.
