Panama Shopping: 17 reviews and 18 photos
What to buy: Panama hats don't come from Panama. They originally came from Ecuador, which has been making them for nearly 400 years. They got their name of 'Panama' hats because Ecuadorian merchants began selling the hats in Panama, which meant that buyers began associating them with that country. Panama hats were popular with Winston Churchill and President Truman. If you want the real thing, go to Ecuador!
