FEATURES
The theme and interior design of the Pavilion presents three aspects of Centralamerica and Panama; agriculture, industry and commerce. On the front facade of the Pavilion is a mural showing a map of the Centralamerican countries with the Pan American Highway as well as other regional roads and railroads.

The exhibit also features six swivel mountings with 12 enlarged photos showing archeological scenes of the countries and pictorial exhibits to further tourism.

The first floor features a coffee bar. On the mezzanine is a small gift shop. The rear plaza is designed as a show area for the daily presentation of folkloric dances.

Pre-Columbian designs and ancient and contemporary art from El Salvador, Costa Rica, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua and Panama are exhibited on a revolving basis.
