Panama is about the size of the state of South Carolina—only 772 miles long and 37miles wide at its narrowest point. This means you can visit both the Atlantic and Pacific oceans in the same day, and if you hike up Volcán Baru, Panama's highest point, you can view both the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans at the same time (one of only 3 places in the world where this is possible).
