Panama City


The Panama Canal impresses as a sight and experience. You can see the massive cargo vessels cross from one of its locks or from boat at Gatun Lake, or sail through it on a lunch cruise. In the heart of the city’s beginnings, ruins left following a pirate attack in 1671 set a magical backdrop for gala dinners. The cobblestone streets of the Spanish-Colonial Casco Viejo district are lined with cafes and shops, and house the famed gold altar the pirates were after. A meeting hub with high rises and a vibrant nightlife, it has been given the name Little Miami.
