Colonial charm of Casco Viejo

The history of Panama City is still very much alive and well. Somewhere between the pulsating nightclubs and the Panama Canal sits Casco Viejo – a historic district featuring superb examples of Colonial architecture in varied states of restoration. The aesthetic charm is undeniable and spreads from the old government buildings right through to the accommodation.

There are a handful of boutique hotels within this historic district, offering sophisticated Colonial style both inside and out. The American Trade Hotel is one such establishment with 4-star amenities and a cosy jazz bar. The Casa Sucre Boutique Hotel is another example of Colonial charm situated within walking distance to the Panama Canal Museum. 

Close to the Panama Canal

A trip to Panama City wouldn't be complete without seeing the Panama Canal. This man-made marvel is a feat of engineering with the Miraflores Locks approximately 20 minutes from the city centre. You may want to consider a trip to the locks to marvel at the ingenuity and tour the information centre.

The Holiday Inn offers a 3-star stay with comfortable rooms and reliable service within two kilometres of the locks. It is also close to the Albrook Mall. A bit further away, smaller hotels and B&Bs offer great value for money. This includes the Country Inn & Suites Panama and La Estancia; both are within seven kilometres of the locks.
