Itinerary

This morning your english speaking tour guide pick up you to take a journey back to the history of Panama, Founded in 1519 by the conquistador Pedrarías Dávila, Panamá Viejo is the oldest European settlement on the Pacific coast of the Americas. It was laid out on a rectilinear grid and marks the transference from Europe of the idea of a planned town.Panamá Viejo, also known as Panamá la Vieja, is the remaining part of the old Panama City and former capital of the country. It is located in the suburbs of the modern city and is part of the UNESCO world heritage.

During its 152 years of existence, the town was affected by slave rebellion, fire and an earthquake, but was destroyed in the wake of a devastating pirate attack in 1671. Since it was relocated and never rebuilt, Panamá Viejo preserves its original layout, a slightly irregular, somewhat rudimentary grid with blocks of various sizes.  There is archaeological evidence of the original street pattern and the location of domestic, religious and civic structures. The site is an exceptional testimony of colonial town planning; the ruins of its cathedral, convents and public buildings showcase unique technological and stylistic characteristics of its temporal and cultural context.  It also offers invaluable information on a variety of aspects of social life, economy, communications and the vulnerability of a strategic site within the geopolitical dynamics at the height of Spanish imperial power.

Continue to Casco viejo for a walking tour  in the most beautiful latin America Spanish Colonial gems, this morning  enjoy history, culture, non-stop nightlife, fine restaurants and ocean views. Casco Viejo is the place to escape the bustle and hustle of the business district to stay, dine, enjoy nightlife, sightsee, stroll and souvenir shop.

You’ll see elegant restored buildings, side by side with the yet-to- be- restored. There’s an eclectic blend of restaurants, upscale and bohemian bars and vibrant street life, walking around the  different streets to appreciate the local culture, plazas, and local markets.
