Depending on where you’re from, the architecture may feel familiar. But with those modern skyscrapers and the European flair, plus the Spanish and Afro-Caribbean culture, Panamá City provides a diverse experience that can’t be found anywhere else, says Ivan Saprov, founder and CEO at Voyagu, which connects travelers with travel agents.
“At the same time all the perks of a big city are there, including both authentic and haute cuisine restaurants plus pedestrian areas,” he says.
For vacationers, the small, tropical country has everything from rainforests to beaches on both coastlines, the Caribbean and Pacific, all within driving distance of Panamá City, says Mercedes Zach, a travel agent and expert with Asaptickets.
