Panama City

Landmarks · Historic Walking Areas · Shopping Malls
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. Use our Panama trip itinerary maker tool to plan your trip to Panama City and other destinations in Panama.

Where to stay in Panama City

To enjoy a balance between old-fashioned architecture and new-edge culture, the southern coastal neighborhood of Casco Viejo (Old Quarter) remains the best place to stay in Panama City. You can choose from a range of stylish boutique hotels and comfortable guesthouses lining the narrow streets of this neighborhood, home to many cafes and bars. For a selection of mid-range and higher-end hotels, many with swimming pools, look to the north-central neighborhood of El Cangrejo. You can also find budget accommodations in the beachfront suburb of Calidonia.
