At first glance, Panama City is a modern metropolis of shiny skyscrapers and pristine perfectly ordered streets. It looks every bit the 21st century business hub that it is, somewhat at odds with its fellow Latin American capital cities. But look a little closer and you will discover its historic heart. Casco Viejo looks and feels like another city altogether, its crumbling colonial facades standing in marked contrast to the gleaming towers of the downtown area. Here life moves at a slower pace, where lazy lunches and afternoon strolls are the order of the day.
