Family adventure: Whale watching in Panama, with kids. Before we moved to Panama I had no idea that the waters beyond the Panama Canal played host to hundreds of Humpback whales every year. It turns out, however, that along with Costa Rica, Panama is the only place in the world where these magnificent creatures migrate from both the Southern and Northern hemispheres to breed and give birth.
