U2's Bono Spends His Latest Vacation in Panama
February 15, 2012
Angelina Jolie and husband Brad Pitt travelled recently to visit the Bridge of Life Museum designed by Frank Gehry which is currently under construction in the Amador neighborhood of Panama City. As soon as this building is officially inaugurated it will immediately become a national icon.
A few days later, Panama received more celebrities, Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta Jones stayed on a private island called Simca in the Chiriqui region. This province is emerging as one of the hottest travel destinations in Central America. Chiriqui boasts an amazing variety of activities from beaches, to rivers, white water rafting and kayaking, to high altitude mountains perfect for trekking and climbing.
Last Monday, the world-famous singer from the band U2, Bono, surprised the Guna Yala community by attending the inauguration of a classroom in Playón Chico, a project created by Pana Zoom. He later enjoyed a Guna dance by young kids as he walked around the site and viewed the beautiful molas delicately made by local women. It's been confirmed that the singer has spent more than a week in Panama and that he is still there.
Vice Minister of Tourism, Ernesto Orillac said "We are very happy to be chosen as a travel destination by celebrities, people that travel around the world on luxury trips and that know about travelling. The country's expansive rainforests are among the richest and most complex of the planet. Panama boasts two full coasts of pristine palm-lined beaches, vast national parks and reserves, and eco-systems ringed by mangroves. Panama City has great new hotels and restaurants, and many more attractions in terms of cultural life and art. Apart from that, our people and traditions as well as the increasing air connectivity, let travellers enjoy the best of Panama, making of their trips amazing experiences. We welcome all to travel to Panama." Last year Panama reached a total of 2 million visitors, one reason for this achievement is the arrival of new airlines and increased frequency, mainly from Europe.
