Recently, I enjoyed an exciting Panama Vacation. Panama is a vibrant country in Central America with a diverse landscape features jungle rainforests, rugged mountains, pristine waterfalls, and charming colonial towns. The unique landscapes offer world-class bird and animal viewing.
Highlights of my Panama Vacation
During my vacation to Panama, I visited the Panama Canal, Old Quarter Panama City, and the Amador Causeway. The landscapes and colonial architecture were incredible, and it was very interesting learning about the history of Panama.
The Panama Canal is quite impressive and not only for engineers! I really enjoyed my visit to The Panama Canal Museum. It has a terrific movie that explains the history of the construction of the Panama Canal in terms that the layman can understand. The Panama Canal connects the Atlantic Ocean with the Pacific Ocean and is essential to maritime trade.
Old Quarter Panama City – Casco Viejo
Casco Viejo or old quarter is the heart and soul of Panama City. Oozing with charm, Casco Viejo is full of boutique hotels, hip eateries art galleries and nightspots mixed with French colonial mansions. Now recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage site and the most trendy area in town.
Amador Causeway, Panama City
The Amador Causeway is located at the southern entrance of the Panama Canal and stretches several miles to the Pacific Ocean. The boardwalk features popular tourist venues, restaurants, hotels and jogging and cycling trails.
