Panama Canal, cruise ships, Europeans, citizens, nationalist

The Panama Canal is the major tourist attraction within Panama, and about 250,000 visitors travel through the canal every year in cruise ships. However, very few set foot in Panama itself. Traditional tourism has never been a large industry, and the nationalist and dictatorial regimes of the 1970s and 1980s made Panama unattractive to U.S. citizens and Europeans who could afford to travel there. Much of the limited tourism in the 1990s was by visitors with other business in Panama.
