We stayed at Los Cuatro Tulipanes in Casco Viejo for five nights and loved it. We stayed in apartment 2B which was cozy and beautifully decorated. If I could, I would have stuffed a bunch of furniture in my luggage to take back to the US. The apartment was clean, comfortable, had a well equipped kitchen (which we didn't use except for the frige), a washer/dryer, TVs in the living room and bedroom. We liked that there was a 1/2 bath on the first floor. If we had a wish list, we would have liked A/C in the main living area and coasters to protect the furniture. The staff was more than accommodating and it was a pleasure meeting Evan, Matt and Sandra......Sandra joined us in our apartment for wine one evening. She's lovely!!! Evan went above and beyond making recommendations of what to do, places to eat and helping us out in general. One evening on the way back to the apartment, I had an accident causing me a sprained foot, yucky cuts on my toe and knee (no I wasn't drunk, ha ha). Evan told us where to find a pharmacy, asked if I needed a doctor, pain pills and called the airline to make arrangements for a wheelchair in both Panama City and Miami. He is truly a gem and caring young man. Blas is their recommended taxi driver. He was extremely reliable, friendly, knowledegable and eager to learn English. We even got to meet his adorable son. We briefly met Matt when we ran into him and Evan at a restaurant. He is a great guy and I wish we had the opportunity to have more contact with him. If you want to see the "real" Panama City, stay at Los Cuarto in Casco Viejo. If you want to feel as if you're in NYC or Miami, stay in the new city with the high rise hotels and office buildings. Casco is in the process of revitalization so you will see many hovels, trash, holes in the sidewalks and streets. Don't let that keep you away. You will be immersed in history, local culture, great restaurants with international flair and friendly happy people. Thanks again to Evan, Sandra and the staff for making our stay fun and pleasant. We feel like we have made friends with all associated with Los Cuarto.
