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.
