At the conclusion of my time in South America, I had a 24 hour layover in Panama. I stayed at the Holiday Inn Panama Canal. It’s a bit outside the city but it’s ideal if you plan to explore the canal. Since it was my first time in Panama, I definitely wanted to explore as much as I could. I did a bit of research and decided to head to Casco Viejo. I took an uber from the hotel which was about $10. Panama also uses USD so no need to worry about exchanging money. Casco Viejo feels a lot like New Orleans. There are lots of restaurants, hotels, cafes, and shops in the area. It also offers breathtaking views of the water.
Have you been to Panama? How did you like it?
