I decided to celebrate this throwback thursday with a rerun of our panama city, panama blog post. We visited Panama in 2017, check it out:
Panama City, Panama is exploding since the return of the canal and being on the American Dollar. Banks from all over the world are setting up shop, building sky-scrapers with their name in bold.
We were pleasantly surprised by not only the size of the city, but the height as well! Panama City is becoming quite the contender in the concrete jungle!
I was also blown away by the price; everything in Panama is much cheaper than the States so it is very easy to have a luxurious vacay while maintaining your budget. We stayed for under $200 a night, played $5 blackjack on a Saturday night and drank $4.50 mixed drinks... and that is the norm! We had such a warm welcome and amazing experience, the people were extremely friendly and the food was outstanding!
While I don’t think you need more than a few days in this city, it was a pleasure to explore and should be a must on your bucket list!
**Note that though Panama City has come along way, there are still many areas that are heavily crime stricken and not safe for solo travel. We recommend booking a driver with your hotel and being very intentional about what sections of the city you see, especially after the sun goes down.
