Boatshed.com welcomes two new offices in South America
We are excited to announce we are now operating in Colombia and Panama with two offices opening last month! These are the first offices that Boatshed.com has opened in South America and we're looking to expand the business further in this area.
Colombia has a coastline on the Atlantic Ocean and the Caribbean Sea (about 1,800 km) and the Pacific Ocean (about 1,500 km). It is bordered to the north by Jamaica, Haiti and the Dominican Republic through the Caribbean Sea, to the west by Panama (225 km), and it has sea borders with Costa Rica and Guatemala.
Colombia is famous for its arepas and specialty coffee, as well as the kindness of its people. It's known for its diverse landscapes and culturally rich heritage where art, music, and theatre mix. It also has its share of famous people like Shakira and Sofia Vergara.
Panama borders both the Caribbean Sea and the Pacific Ocean, between Colombia and Costa Rica. Panama is located on the narrow and low Isthmus of Panama. Nearly 500 rivers lace Panama's rugged landscape. Mostly unnavigable, many originate as swift highland streams, meander in valleys, and form coastal deltas.
Panama is known as a transit country because of the Panama Canal. While the country is known for its famous canal, its natural attractions include birding, white water rafting, and snorkelling tours. Panama's biodiversity has been said to be three times higher than the United State, Canada and Europe combined.
Both areas are becoming more popular as a cruising destination due to some of the most stunning and remote tropical islands that can be visited by boat.
