Beautiful old neighborhood, nice for wondering around. Some excellent restaurants. The only issue was traveling with a stroller, which is very challenging, due to the steep and narrow sidewalks.

Awesome experience being able to walk the streets and dine at some of the local eateries! Awesome vendors with crafts and the street Ice was icing on the cake!

We visited different places of atraction in panama, but the perfect one for night life is the Casco Viejo. Best bars and disco. Very international. I would like more latin music, but still enjoyed it.

Beautiful place to walk about during day or night. Go to the end where you can see the city skyscrapers in the distance and walk among old buildings, you will get the feeling of how it used to be Panama. Lots of places to eat...More

Enjoyed walking through the streets one morning. Great shops and cafes and local artisans selling along the sea wall. Beautiful scenery and friendly people. Grab a walking map and explore this beautiful part of the city.

We used Uber for each taxi ride. Excellent rates between 3 and $5 for 4 people.
