Arguably the most modern of Central American cities, Panama City boasts a shimmering skyline of glass skyscrapers.
Bahai Temple and Casco Viejo are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Museo del Canal Interoceanico de Panama and Biomuseo will appeal to museum buffs. Step out of Panama City with an excursion to Fort San Lorenzo in Colon--about 1h 55 min away. There's lots more to do: take in the architecture and atmosphere at Iglesia de la Merced, delve into the distant past at El Arco Chato, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Capilla San Jose, and get a taste of the local shopping with Nina Concept Store.
