Santa Catalina is a small fishing village on the Pacific coast of Panama, but it is much better known as the best place for surfing in this country, and perhaps in Central America. What makes surfers flock to Santa Catalina is the left and right wave break, but also the peace and beauty of a place that is quite relaxing and sleepy. Visitors also adhere to the customs of this fishing place. For example, you can't go to and from the beach without clothes, because it's rude in this community. And they want to preserve their customs.
