Where to stay, what to eat & drink, and what to do in Panama city

Panama city - where to stay, where to eat out, what to do

Travel tips for Panama City for fashionistas and everyone who likes travelling in style…

Panama City really took me by surprise. It’s big and full of skyscrapers and designer label malls, but also very charming – especially the old town, Casco Viejo, with its lovely villas, street art on every corner, great restaurants, and lots of fun and stylish rooftop bars and cafés. There is a lot to see and some island & Beach getaways right around the corner.

Go there on your own, with a group of friends, with a lover, or your best friend. It’s a place for everyone and the perfect start for individual travellers on their way up to Mexico or down to Chile.
