Panama City is a center with all the sense of the word. Located in the Gulf of Panama along the Pacific coast, Panama City is located in the heart of the country and functions as the main artery through which the rest of Panama receives its visitors, commerce, and culture. Here the pace of life is quite fast, especially compared to the rest of the country - at all times you can find taxis on the streets, street vendors at intersections, and locals chatting on park benches. And yet, despite all its modernity, Panama City still retains much of its history - the ruins of Panama Viejo, for example, are extensive and well preserved - which is considered charming and informative by visitors. In addition, due to the unique location of the country, it is extremely international, with cultures from all over the world represented within the exclusive structure of the city. Whether for a few days or a few weeks, Panama City will capture anyone who visits and provide a wonderful introduction to the rest of the country.
