Every year on October 21st, The Festival of the Black Christ is celebrated. This celebration takes place in the town of Portobelo where many people come together and worship a black wooden statue of their patron saint, Jesus. The statue is carried around by 8 men and is brought back to the church by midnight. At the church people dance, sing and feast all night long.
When it comes to the land and climate Panama has much less land than the United States and receives much more rainfall. Tropical forests and high temperatures year round also differentiate Panama and the United States. Some parts of the United States do have dense forest but nothing like Panama's very common tropical rain forest. Mountains however are a trait in which both countries share.
Panamanian food seems to be more traditional than the United States. Both countries do celebrate an independence day the same way, recognizing the same idea.
I would give Panama and the United States a compatibility rating of a C.
