Currently construction of an 11th temple is underway in Chile as one was destroyed in Turkmenistan. This religious building's guardians allow you to enter but no pictures. The grounds are serene and meticulously attended to. However the views of the capital of Panama are priceless...More

After visiting the Embera tribe my friends and I drove up to visit the temple. The only regret was that the temple was being renovated so we could not go inside. We just walked around and looked at Panama from afar which added to the...More

I personally think this is should be on your to see list if you are in Panama for more than 2 days. The location is a bit remote but that is its draw as well. It really is quite beautiful with awesome views
