In vast contrast to the modern lifestyle of Panama City, large parts of the countryside are to a large extent still undeveloped. Deep in the rainforests, hidden in the highlands and cast-away on tiny little islands, there are seven indigenous cultures in Panama left, who maintain their own language and customs and living in autonomous regions.
