Map of Panama.

So far I haven't met any inland made Monopoly(-like) edition of Panama but it is very likely there exist.

However, the company Industrias Ronda Ltda - Bogotá - Colombia has finally developed to the Parker/Hasbro supplier in Panama.  That company was founded in June 1972 out of a small printing company. From then on their board games and puzzles activities steadily grow, reason why the company moved in 1984 to a new works, also situated in Bogotá. In that time the company got licenced by Walt Disney, Parker Brothers and Borrás, the Spanish licensee of Parker Brothers. 
In 1986 the games part of the company changed name into Ronda S.A. and was it manufacturing games for Latin-American countries like Panama, Ecuador, Costa Rica, Chile, Mexico and Venezuela. In 2000 an agreement was entered into with Hasbro for the distribution of their products in 12 Latin-American countries.
