Casco Viejo – Henry Morgan sacked old Panama. This area has been declared World Heritage by UNESCO, so whatever renovations are done here, it has to be done in the original French colonial facade.
The Amador Causeway – U.S. man-made road built with material that was removed when the Panama Canal was constructed. With water on both sides, there are a lot of wonderful restaurants in this area and a beautiful view of the Panama City skyline. You can see the Pacific entrance to the Panama Canal and the Amador Causeway is also where you can visit our new Frank Gehry’s Museum of Biodiversity.
Miraflores Locks – You HAVE to see a ship transiting the locks so close that you feel you could almost touch it! We have a beautiful center with an unbelievable museum, where you can see a ship passing through Miraflores Locks right in front of you. There is also a very good restaurant here where you can eat lunch or dinner while looking at the ships transiting through the Miraflores Locks.
American Bases (Albrook/Clayton), where all the military used to live until December 31, 1999. I will also show you some of the areas where civilians who worked on the Panamá canal used to live.
Gamboa Rainforest Resort – There is a gorgeous hotel in the middle of the rainforest called the Gamboa Rainforest Resort, it is about a 45 minute drive from Panama City is beautiful….about 25 minutes from the Miraflores Locks. The drive is beautiful….and the view from the hotel overlooking the Chagres River, the Gatun Lake, and the Rainforest is amazing. This area is known as a birder’s paradise. In Panama, we have more species of birds than Canada and the United States together!
Metropolitan National Park is the only protected area in Central America that exists within the borders of a metropolitan city. The park covers 265 hectares and we can go on some trails that lead through the rich vegetation of vines, bindweed, shrubs, orchids and trees, in addition, a variety of species of mammals, reptiles, insects and birds. The park is about 20 minutes away from any of the local hotels in Panamá City.
