Visions of Panama City

In the year I had living in the US I was hoping to venture out to see a lot of central and south America, but as the year came to a close I was becoming aware of the possibility that I’ll be leaving the region without seeing that part of the world. So, looking at the map and checking ticket prices, I made a very last minute decision to visit Panama, without doing too much homework on what Panama has to offer. In the few days I stayed for a bit in Panama City and then ventured out to the islands and the mountains.

The most famous attraction in Panama City is, ofcourse, the Panama Canal, deserving of an early trip up north to see the boats passing through and the construction on the long awaited extension. Not too far away are some rainforest hiking trails, which I was planning on doing but finally had to skip. Back in Panama City you can enjoy the colonial buildings of old town – Casco Viejo, and the Amador Causeway road connected islands of Isla Flamenco.
