Here is a lineup of the 2014 Holiday Calendar (Dias Feriados) in Panama:
Jan 1 (Wednesday): New Year’s Day
Jan 9 (Thursday): M¡rtires Day
Mar 4 (Tuesday): Carnival Day
Apr 18 (Friday): Good Friday
May 1 (Thursday): Labor Day
Nov 3 (Monday): Independence Day from Colombia
Nov 5 (Wednesday): Colon’s Day
Nov 10 (Monday): The Uprising of Los Santos
Nov 28 (Friday): Independence Day from Spain (To be observed, Monday, December 1, 2014)
Dec 8 (Monday): Mother’s Day Panama
Dec 25 (Thursday): Christmas Day
Something different that Panama does than most places is if the holiday falls on a Sunday they move it to Monday so that everyone can have a three day weekend. They have also moved holidays that were originally on a Thursday or Friday to Monday so that people can have a long weekend as well. From what I know they still have not decided if they are going to move some of the holidays around to allow longer weekends so I will update the list as soon as it is announced.
