Panama City

Dubai of Latin America

Arguably the most modern of Central American cities, Panama City boasts a shimmering skyline of glass skyscrapers. Just outside of town, verdant rainforest and idyllic tropical beaches offer visitors a chance to escape the hustle and bustle of the busy city streets. On a tour of Panama City, you can experience the contrast between its palm-tree fringed avenues and the historic center, where colonial-era buildings line narrow, cobblestone streets. Explore the ruins of the original city that was destroyed by pirates, take a day trip to one of the numerous forests and parks nearby, or watch the massive ships navigate the Panama Canal on your Panama City vacation. Take a look at our Panama attractions planner to refine the details of your trip to Panama City.
