Casco Viejo and the Panamá Black Weekend
No visit to Panama City is complete without a visit to the the City’s hippest neighborhood is also its smallest. Just four avenues wide, Casco Viejo (literally meaning ‘old quarter’) is a UNESCO protected district and a barrio on the up. It wasn’t long ago that gangs patrolled these narrow brick streets and visitors kept far away, but these days the grand old colonial houses and crumbling pastel facades have become some of the capital’s most stylish addresses.
