What to bring

In Panama City the people are very well dressed and take pride in their appearance. In the rural areas and because of the relatively large fluctuations in temperature it is always a good idea to have long sleeves and even a jacket for the cooler spots. Long sleeves are also comfortable at night as they will protect you from mosquitoes. You will want light clothing such as cotton tee shirts as well, as the temperatures can be quite hot. Be sure to bring a good pair of shoes for any excursions as open-toed shoes are not recommended. Also, be sure to bring a pair of beach sandals and light shoes for when it is much hotter out. And bring an umbrella regardless of whether it is the wet or dry season.

Day 02 Shared Historical Panama City Tour

Today you take a tour through this cosmopolitan city with emphasis on historical sites and buildings. The most important stops on the tour are Panama Viejo – the Old Panama – and the Colonial part called Casco Antiguo. Old Panama was founded in 1519 and the first settlement on the Pacific coast of the Americas. 1671 the notorious English buccaneer Henry Morgan looted and completely destroyed this City. In the same decade, a new Panama City was constructed 10 kilometers away on a better suited place – today’s Casco Antiguo. In the Casco Antiguo you will view the main buildings and landmarks as the President’s Palace, the remarkable cathedral and the San José church with its splendorous golden altar.
