Panama City, Casco Viejo

On our recent trip to Panama City with my friend Holly, we had the pleasure of staying with Emma which was great because not only is she great company, she knows the interesting things to see in the city.

I had been to Casco Viejo a couple times. The first time was on our first visit to the country. We rented a car and got lost every time we set out, and one of our unplanned excursions was to Casco Viejo. The last time was more than two years ago on another visit when we hired a taxi driver to give us a tour around the city. This is the first time I have been there on foot.

Things have sure changed since our first visit! There has been a lot of renovation and many of the buildings are completed. It’s a really interesting area with lots of things to see, so walking is the perfect way to look around a bit.

Little by little, I’m catching up. From here we had more good times at Bocas del Toro, and then the Rambala Jungle Lodge. Posts will be coming…

    A similar recontruction has been done in the 90s in Singapore. I also like the ancient
    homes in Charlston in South Carolina as well as historical Kingston New York. Of course also the old buildings along the canals in Amsterdam The Netherlands my home country. Malta the small Island in the Mediterranean has a pile of very nice very ancient buildings.

    Kris, Casco Viejo really is looking nice. Last time I was there, 1990, it sure didn’t look anywhere that clean & nice. BTW, your photographs are always GREAT!!!


    • 1990 was probably 10 years before our first visit, and it has changed so much since then. It must have been like a different place altogether when you saw it. Thanks, glad you enjoy the photos 🙂


  6. Wonderful shots of the dilapitated buildings. I really enjoyed your visit to the old quarter. The architecture is so charming & interesting. Thank you for sharing.

    Excellent photos! You captured it well.
    We had drinks and snacks at the brunch place. It felt like we were in Spain.
