In between two oceans and two continents is Panama City, a place that offers tropical beaches, a great deal of history and a fusion of cultures that would make for an adventurous vacation.
Panama City is widely known for its more than 40-mile canal that connects the Pacific Ocean with the Atlantic Ocean. The first thing to do on your visit is to take a trip down to the canal to be amazed at its engineering and relevance to the global economy.
After the canal, take a walk along Cinta Costera for great city and Pacific views. You can explore the beauty of the modern city before discovering the past in Old Town.
Panama Viejo, also known as Panama la Vieja, is the remaining part of the old Panama City and was named a World Heritage Site in 1997.
After spending time in old Panama City, trying Geisha coffee is a must! Although not local to Panama, Geisha beans from Panama are considered a prize possession. Make sure you try what some people consider the finest Geisha coffee in the world.
Last, but certainly not the least, there are tons of beaches to enjoy during your stay. Taboga Island is the closest to Panama City. It’s also known as the “Island of Flowers.”
