Panama City was primarily a stop-over and gateway on my way to visiting Nicaragua and El Salvador. I always wanted to see the canal of course, which I did. Miraflores locks is the best area to see the ships pass in and out of the canal, just outside Panama City. Panama Viejo (old part of the city) was also quite nice to stroll around. Otherwise, I felt that the city is hyper modern and does not have that much charm. A couple of days was quite enough, when only seeing Panama City, as I did not have time to travel around this small country. When coming next time, It will have to be in connection to trying out the Darian gap into Colombia.
