I love exploring and it feels like there are things to see around every corner. A small area of town with incredible views hosts new and the old. Nice parks and good food.

The view is beautiful and I loved walking around the roads of the old city. There are many bars, pubs and restaurants, just watch out for the tourist traps. Taxis in Casco Viejo are insanely expensive, beware of the fact that the taxi drivers take advantage of the tourists.

I hired a driver to take me to the old city and give me a walking tour. All the buildings are so amazing. Most are rebuilt and some are in the progress of being rebuilt. A few are original, all are amazing to see. Well worth the walk.

We went to Casco Viejo twice. One with a guide, wondered through many churches, shops, plazas. So much history!

This area has been redeveloped over the past 20 years and is undergoing further renovation to take it back to its glory days. When the Cathedral is completed and the shoreline developments finished it will be even more special. Good hotels and restaurants, great views back to Panama City and good museums particularly the Canal and Cultural ones. Stay there!
