Panama travel tips
The capital Panama City, with its Spanish-American influence, provides you with your first impressions of the country. The great setting of fancy villas, skyscrapers, green hills, ocean liners and luxury yachts surprised me as much as the scale of the place. If you are not put off by the hectic drive and the noise you will discover a fast-living, cosmopolitan city which lends itself to a fantastic shopping experience. Panama City lies directly on the Pacific Ocean. From there you can see the huge ships waiting to enter the nearby Panama Canal. When flying, you should book your seat on the left in order to have a fine view of the impressive skyline and coast when landing.
