Colonial buildings are very well maintained. Old churches, plazas decorate the picturesque neighborhood. I recommend to park and walk thru the streets You will be able to see a lot. At night you can visit any of the restaurants and night clubs. Wear comfortable shoes.

Nice part of the city for walking sightseeing. Renovations are taking place but very enjoyable nevertheless. There are many places to get something to drink and with clean bathrooms.

This is the historic center of Panama City. You can pass an afternoon wandering down the zig-zaging streets or sitting in the main plaza. There are also tons of restaurants and bars in this area.

This is a great adventure with churches, the Panama Canal Museum (more detailed than the one at the actual canal), historic museum, restaurants, and restoration of some beautiful old building. We stayed three days and enjoyed the area.
