The skyline of Panama City, Panama is quite modern, and the city has
the third most skyscrapers in the Americas.
This is the oldest church in Panama. It was built in 1673.
The church is located in Casa Antigua, which is the "Old Town."
The Amador Causeway was built out of all the rock and debris from the
digging of the Panama Canal. It connects three off shore islands
to the city. The Bridge of the Americas is in the background.
Here are some more skyscrapers in Panama City. Panama City has a
large banking industry.
We stayed at the Waldorf Astoria in Panama City. It is the only
Waldorf Astoria property in Latin America, and I hightly recommend it!
Here is a nice shot of Panama City at dusk. The Trump
International Hotel is the tallest building there. It is the
curvy building all the way towards the right of the picture.
The Seafood Market in Panama City was made famous by Anthony Bourdain
on his show. They have amazing ceviche there.

Joy and I went to
visit Panama in May of 2017. We had a direct flight from SFO to
Tocuman International Airport near Panama City. I highly
recommend putting Panama on one's bucket list. The city is quite
modern with a beautiful skyline, but there is also natural beauty
around with rainforests, hills, and the ocean as well. Casa
Antigua is also really cool! It is the "Old Town" that was built
around 1673! Panama got rid of their military before the hand
over of the Panama Canal to avoid the risk of military coups. The
city seemed pretty safe however with a large police force protecting
it. The food was amazing too!
