Ecuador is a small country, and they could not sell all of their hats locally, so they exported them to Panama, where a lot of tourists would visit. When the tourists got home with their hats, people would say "I like that hat, where did you get it?". "Panama", was the answer...Hence, the Panama Hat !!
