My friends who stayed in Panama city told me there was not much to see, yet I really loved it. Its skyline is phenomenal, people are great, there are a number of things to see and activities, shopping possibilities etc.
around. Its old town is charming and an absolute must is, of course, the Panama Canal.
Explore the old and new, which is joined by a wonderful waterfront pathway. Go to the Panama Canal, Casco Viejo, Financial District, and participate in various physical activities on the waterfront.
Panama City surprised both my boyfriend and I. We were shocked by how much there was to do here, how safe we felt, how friendly everyone was, all of the sight seeing and gorgeous scenery.
We already want to go back! I loved this city so much more than I ever could have imagined!
I am sorry not to be able to tell too much about Panama City. I was on a business trip. The city looks very modern with new highrise buildings and a very nice waterfront.
Very close to the city you can visit the Panama Canal "Miraflores" Locks, a unique landmark in the world.
It is beautiful, breathtaking, architecturally rich, the cultural experience through the eyes of a Panamanian friend we met has enlighten our experience of Panama City.
Sorry we had to leave so soon, looking forward to an early return.
It is a modern city with a very good public transportation system. It has the largest shopping mall in Latin America (Albrook Mall).
The currency used is the United States dollar and coins although you may receive change with Panama coins which have the same value as the United States coins
If you are a North American expect to pay double or triple the local rate. Expect the Panamanian to try and rip you off.
