The formation of the Isthmus of Panama over 2.8 million years ago, is considered one of the greatest natural events of the Cenozoic. The S-shaped isthmus is situated between 7° and 10° north latitude and 77° and 83° west longitude linking Central and South America. The sandy beach coastlines merge into lowlands that give way to the foothills of the inland volcanic mountain ranges and rainforests.
Panama boasts over 5,600 kilometers of coastline and more than 1,500 islands, most of them uninhabited.
