Why Panama City? Panama is a fusion of history and modernity and is by far the most cosmopolitan capital in Central America. It is both a vibrant metropolis and gateway to tropical escapes. Welcoming both east and west, Panama is a hub of trade and immigration. The resulting cultural cocktail mix leads to a refreshing 'anything goes' attitude, more dynamic and fluid than that of its Central and South American neighbours. Casco Viejo, its cobblestoned historic centre is famed for colonial-era landmarks like the neoclassical Palacio Presidencial and bougainvillea-filled plazas lined with cafes and bars.
