A vibrant paradise of sun, sea, history and adventure

Panama City beckons travellers with its unique blend of history, modernity, and cultural richness.

Panama City is a vibrant metropolis where the past seamlessly blends with the present, creating a captivating urban adventure for visitors.

Begin your journey by exploring the historic heart of the city - Casco Viejo. This UNESCO World Heritage Site boasts cobblestone streets, colonial architecture, and a vibrant atmosphere. Stroll along Plaza de la Independencia, surrounded by impressive landmarks such as the Metropolitan Cathedral and the Presidential Palace.

Delve into Panama's pre-colonial past at the Panama Viejo Archaeological Site. This fascinating ruin of the original Panama City, destroyed in the 17th century, offers a glimpse into the city's history before its relocation to Casco Viejo. Explore the well-preserved ruins and visit the museum to learn about the city's early days and its significance as a key port during the Spanish colonial era.

Embrace the city's cultural diversity by attending colourful events such as Carnival or exploring local art galleries and handicraft markets. Don't forget to savour the delectable fusion of flavours from the city's diverse culinary scene, where influences from around the world meld seamlessly with traditional Panamanian dishes.

No visit to Panama City is complete without a trip to the world-famous Panama Canal. Witness the marvel of modern engineering as massive vessels navigate through the Miraflores Locks, connecting the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans. The Miraflores Visitor Centre offers a remarkable vantage point to observe the canal's operations and learn about its historical significance through interactive exhibits.

Skyline Views - head to the Amador Causeway for breathtaking views of the city's modern skyline, framed by the azure waters of the Pacific Ocean. At night, the city comes alive with lights, creating a magical ambiance perfect for nighttime cityscape photography.

Finally, escape the urban bustle by exploring the lush Metropolitan Natural Park, an oasis of biodiversity within the city limits. Hike through tropical rainforests and encounter a variety of flora and fauna, including toucans, sloths, and howler monkeys. The park's panoramic views of the city offer a serene retreat for nature enthusiasts and photographers alike.
