Location Advise

Can someone please advise a good area to stay in Panama City.

Young adults coming to Panama and are looking to be near the restaurants/nightlife.

Any hotel recommendations would also be greatly appreciated. No specific budget. We would like a luxury/trendy hotel.

El Cangrejo - Via Venetto or Via Argentina.

Or down on Cinta Costera and Calle Uruguay.

Try to stay at Casco Antiguo, Via España or Ave Balboa.

Stay away from Ave Justo Arosemena or Avenida Cuba because those are close to the old town and may look ok but at nights is not recommendable

Those areas are close to nightlife and restaurants

Best of luck

The Hard Rock is not great for getting anywhere, except the casino and mall in front of it.

The Riu is fairly close to the top of Calle Uruguay but does that area still get mired in traffic ?

Hard rock has its own entertainment/partying and you can take a cab elsewhere if necessary. From the Riu you can just walk to calle uruguay or take a short cab ride elsewhere in the city.

Yeah, but you are REALLY going to pay for the cab at the Hard Rock! Unless you want to stay there and party, there are much smarter places to stay in Panama City.

I always think that the Hard Rock is for those who want to pretend that they aren't actually in Panama City.
