Panama City

Why visit Panama City

Soaring skyscrapers and a thriving banking district demonstrate the new era as they sparkle next to the remainders of Panama Viejo and the fading grandeur of the sumptuous French-style mansions of Casco Antiguo, which continues to be lovingly restored into fine restaurants and boutique hotels. Moreover within 30 minutes in almost any direction, you will find yourself within the green belt of tropical rainforest and the National Parks that surround the city; thick with wildlife.

About Panama City

Panama City is an exciting cosmopolitan capital of great contrasts, located on the Pacific Coast of Panama and at the entrance of the Panama Canal. During the colonial period, Panama City was the base from which the Inca Empire in Peru was conquered and became one of the most important trading routes of the American Continent. Today, a thriving economy, sophisticated social scene, and world class hotels and restaurants make it one of the liveliest capital cities in Central America.

  • No visit to Panama City is complete without at least a partial transit of the Panama Canal
  • Visit the UNESCO district of Casco Viejo and St Joseph Church home to the golden altar
  • Choose a walking tour of Panama City, taking you to the neighbourhoods not usually visited
  • Spend a day in Soberania National Park and walk part of the historical trail Camino de Cruces that connects the Pacific to the Atlantic coast; a well-trodden path by merchants, slaves and gold seekers alike
