Home Ports Panama Darién


Darién is a province located in the east of Panama. It is the only province in the country that borders both the Caribbean Sea and the Pacific Ocean. It is bordered by the provinces of Panama, Colon, Herrera and Los Santos. The capital of the province is La Palma.

Darién is known for its diverse flora and fauna. It is home to the Darién National Park, which is the largest protected area in Central America and the second largest in the world. The park is home to a variety of species, including jaguars, tapirs, and more than 400 species of birds.

The province is also known for its rich cultural heritage. The region was originally inhabited by the Emberá and Wounaan people, who still inhabit the area today. The culture of the region is heavily influenced by the indigenous population, and is known for its traditional music, art, and cuisine.

Darién was the site of a major historical event in the early 1600s, when the Spanish attempted to establish a settlement in the region. The settlement was abandoned after a few years due to the harsh conditions, but the Spanish left behind a legacy of colonial architecture that can still be seen in the region today.

In the late 1700s, Darién became part of the newly independent Republic of Gran Colombia. During this period, the region was a hub for trade and commerce, and the port of La Palma was a major trading center.

Today, Darién remains an important region in Panama and is home to many of the country's most important tourist attractions. It is also home to a large number of indigenous communities, and the region's culture is still heavily influenced by its indigenous population.
