Panama City, the capital of capitals in Central America, is a cosmopolitan gateway to Panama’s vibrant culture. For a country so under travelled and under populated the capital is a thriving centre for international banking and trade. The skyline has been compared to that of Miami with the glass towers reflecting rays of the blistering heat that Central America enjoys so fervently.
Dancing, dining and more dancing are the activity of choice in the city and there is an abundance of chic places to visit throughout the varying neighbourhoods. Casco Viejo however is a favourite haunt of the youngsters as the cobbled streets and crumbling buildings bring an old town feel to a newly refurbished city.
Ethnic diversity is where the city truly shines with habitants hailing from all over the world. The melting pot of cultures is apparent in the variety of restaurants that scatter the city from traditional Panamanian food to sushi to tikka masala to delicious kebabs. No culture isn’t represented in Panama City and all intertwine with the Central American culture so effortlessly that it creates an atmosphere like no other.
So slip into the rhythm of this Latin party and bask in the delights of the culture.
