panama city

Boasting one of the most impressive city skylines south of the USA, Panama City is also one of the most exciting and cosmopolitan cities in Central America.

With the iconic Panama Canal on its doorstep and overlooking the vast Pacific Ocean, nearly half of Panama’s population live in its bustling capital. The only capital city in the world to have a rainforest within its border, its central location in the heart of Panama makes it ideal for exploring the rest of the country. The city that fuses the Pacific and Atlantic oceans together, it’s the perfect mixture of colonial history and modern elegance.

things to do

  • To see the “real Casco Viejo”, the Fortaleza “Gang” Tour is run by former members of local gangs, who have reintegrated into society by providing these fascinating tours.
