6) Panama City, Panama
Although the beaches of Panama are easy to access from the city, those who travel here are more interested in a city experience—a visit to Panama City offers culture, cuisine and adventure. It is the capital of the Republic of Panama and a city of French colonial influence, with many modern buildings alongside the Casco Viejo (Old Quarter). Casco Viejo is a favorite location among travelers, where you’ll see the beautiful colonial style buildings, wide streets, and historical attractions. It is also where the President of Panama’s residence is located. Gather with friends at Casco Viejo to explore some of the city’s best Caribbean dining and entertainment options. Panama City is colorful, vibrant, and proud of its heritage. If you want to venture outside the city, you can enjoy golf, canopy tours, train tours, or leisurely nature hikes.
