Mexico City is the first place where it all started happening in the New World, it was the center for many years, and even to this day is one of the centers (if still not the center.) Which means not only should you be able to find historical stuff regarding Mexico, but should be able to find stuff from all over the New world. For a bibliophile like me, that would be way cool.
I recently went to Mexico City and I fell in love with that city. There is just a lot of everything there.

If I can include all of South and Central America including the Caribbean I would say:


1. Dominica
2. Suriname
3. Guyana
4. Trinidad and Tobago
5. Dominican Republic despite recent negative media attention.

If Venezuela ever improves, I would add that too.

This is not to throw shade on Panama but I really don't see the attraction of this country. Sure I would go but to put it in my top 5 of ALL Latin America?!? I'm just surprised it shows up so much with such little it offers in my opinion.

My list would change too if we included non-Spanish/Portuguese speaking nations. Suriname and Guyana would definitely be on my list.

Iíve always found Panamanian people to be warm and vibrant people so that personally makes me want to visit the country. Beautiful mix of people, vibrant culture, various historical sites...why not?

Panamanians are probably one of the least warm of the wider Hispano-Caribbean region - they themselves would probably admit to that. I do think their culture is vibrant however, the mix of people is interesting and it does have some sites of historical significance but out of all Latin America I fail to see how it makes the cut. I think people are just less knowledgeable on the virtues of other countries like Ecuador or Guatemala.

They’ve always been warm to me! I enjoy being around them...and they’ve always invited me to Panama. Might be visiting at the end of the year, which I’m excited about. Obviously the place has something that draws people...

Yes, I'm not saying they're not warm they are just probably the least warm compared to other neighbouring nations with that same Caribbean-Tropical influence.

Most people that are drawn to Panama have never been to Brazil, Colombia, Grenada or Nevis. Mexico too is v. friendly despite its bad rep in the US. A lot of the Panama draw is US retiree influenced championed by International Living and other retirement agencies. The real draw of Panama is hardly mentioned such as the birthplace of Spanish Reggae, Casco Viejo, Guarare, David, Las Tablas Carnival, the Embera, the Kuna or even good Chinese food.
