Colombia–Panama border

The Colombia–Panama border is the international boundary between Colombia and Panama. It is also the border between South America and Central America.


Borders of Panama in 1904

Formerly, the regional border was initially created in 1508 after royal decree, to separate the colonial governorships of Castilla de Oro and Nueva Andalucía, using the River Atrato as the boundary between the two goverorships.[1]

The current limit was regulated by the League of Nations, on 17 August 1925. The border was made based on the same Colombian law of June 9, 1855.[2]
