Combine a Panama tour with a trip to Mexico, Costa Rica, or another Central American country for rewarding off-the-beaten-path experiences. Panama City, capital and gateway, is a thriving modern metropolis and financial centre. On the other hand, the UNESCO-listed neighbourhood of Casco Viejo, or old quarter, is a colourful collection of brick-lined alleys and buildings dating back to Spanish colonial times. The numerous al fresco restaurants, trendy coffee shops, and lively jazz bars, as well as renovated boutique hotels, lovely churches, and structures in need of renovation, all contribute to the area’s charm.
A trip to Panama would be incomplete without stopping at the world-famous Panama Canal, which connects the two great oceans side of the Americas. At this modern engineering marvel, you can watch ships pass through the Miraflores Locks and learn about one of the most critical shipping passageways on the planet.
