I love going to Casco Viejo everytime I go to Panama City, it has so much history in it, beautiful views of Panama city, beautiful old building and churches. It has so many restaurants and hotels you won't have any trouble finding a good place to eat.

So much to see here, 4 beautiful churches from the 1600's, good shopping, narrow streets. Nice buildings. Seat outside the restaurant and have a cold drink. Street vendors.

Take a break from the bustle of Downtown Panama with a walk through old town. There are many interesting and historical sights to see just minutes away from Panama City Center.

Here night time you can find restaurants, daytime some story and beautiful buildings. You can take great pictures here and enjoy the afternoon without any issues. Also you can buy some souvenirs, bit expensive but there are plenty options. Its Panama old town, you will enjoy it. Its being restaurated almost all of it but is nice to visit.

A very lively place both day and night. It can be a confusing place to get around so go slowly. There are a lot of different restaurants an cafes and beautiful architecture.

Lovely to walk around, some nice restaurants and bars. The prices are starting to climb to high for the average walk around but there are still some jewels to be discovered.

It was very beautiful. You can see the entire City skyline and during the night its even more beautiful. We seen photographers taking pictures of polleras and that was breathtaking. Also some of the jewelry are hand made and the vendors make it there right in front of you. Beautiful place

Beautifull quarter of Panama city ! Great place to party and meet people and really safe ! Try to take a map if it's you're first time for it is easy to lose yourself walking around from shop to shop and bar to bar ! ;)
