What to do in Panama

Panama is the capital city of its namesake country. Panama displays unpolluted natural beauties, Caribbean beaches, and centuries of history, resulting in a perfect blend of nature and culture that will make your trip unforgettable. The city of Panama is divided in two contrasting parts: the old town that has something of Havana in it; and the new town, somehow reminiscent of Miami. Both of them are worth the visit. The former, called Casco Viejo, bends over the ocean on its south-west end and it’s the true cultural and historical center, boasting sumptuous colonial architecture samples such as the Iglesia de San José, a notable church with a Baroque golden altar. It is often related that a priest painted it black and hid it from the hands of the famous pirate Henry Morgan when he ransacked Panamá Viejo. However, if you are looking for a more Latino atmosphere, we suggest a stroll at the Calidonia and Santa Ana quarters, always peopled with screaming dealers. If you go west you can reach Mercado de Artesanias de Balboa and Mi Pueblito, which is a perfect replica of a turn-of-the-century small village located in the inside of the country. Of course, do not miss the Panama Canal, one of the most important engineering works of the world and a must-see for any tourist in Panama.

Driving near Panama

Having a hire car in Panama will allow you an array of landscapes. You can pick what you prefer to visit not only around the city but in the whole country. Indeed, all around the capital there are a number of sights. One of them is San Blas, an archipelago of some three hundred sixty islands and cays that lies just a couple kilometers away from Panama and where you can scuba dive or relax under the palm trees: quite the mandatory stop for any tourist. Finally, if you are in for crossing the country, take a couple of days off to visit Bocas del Toros, another archipelago of striking wild nature. After all, what is better than that to forget the hectic working days?
