Panama is most famous for its canal which links the Pacific and Atlantic oceans. However, it is becoming increasingly important as a banking centre and tourist destination which has increased the demand for teachers, including TEFL instructors. There are language schools, mainly located in the capital, Panama City, which offer a competitive local salary. The more experienced and qualified TEFL teachers should look at positions at independent schools and tertiary institutions. You should check which vaccinations you might need if you are going to live in the country.
