The most well-known "isthmus" is the Republic of Panama. It joins North America / Central America with South America. Definition of “Istmo” (Spanish for isthmus): a narrow strip of land connecting two larger masses of land. It is pronounced: eest-moh.

Panama has one of the great man-made wonders of the world, the Panama Canal. It connects two of the world’s largest bodies of water: the Caribbean Sea and the Pacific Ocean.
