Beautiful Plazas

Panama has many beautiful plazas that are just waiting to be explored.  This one is called Plaza de Francia and is located in the beautiful Casco Viejo.  It is dedicated to the French citizens who risked their lives and their reputation to build the Panama Canal.  Although they were not able to finish the Canal, […]

A Beautiful View

As I was walking along the Paseo  Las Bovedas I couldn’t help thinking, “What a beautiful view.” Even though phase 3 of the Cinta Costera blocks some of the view, it is still breathtaking.

Casa Sucre

The other day I was walking around the Casco and decided to enter Casa Sucre Coffeehouse.  It was my first time there and I have to say I really liked the ambiance.  The service was very good.  I had some coffee and some quiche. I will definitely be returning to try some of the sandwiches. […]

Advertisement Is Important!

If you want to sell a product, you must advertise.  We all know this to be a “truth”. However, no one ever said you had to spend a fortune on advertising a product in order to sell it.  You only need to make sure you message is loud and clear.  I think the person who […]

San Francisco de Asis

San Francisco de Asis  in Casco Viejo is one of the most beautiful churches in Panama City.  It is situated in the heart of the Casco Viejo directly in front of Plaza Bolivar.  It is currently being restored. http://cascoviejo.com/iglesia-san-francisco-de-asis/

Relaxing Walk

There is nothing more relaxing than taking a late afternoon stroll, especially if you  have a beautiful place like the  Casco Viejo as your backdrop.

Placid Afternoon

The perfect way to spend a placid afternoon is strolling through the lovely streets of Csco Viejo.  I can’t think of a better way to spend the day.

It’s Carnival Time!

Most of Panama is riotously celebrating the much awaited carnival season.  Music, laughter, dancing, eating and drinking fill the agendas of most Panamanians and visiting tourists.  However, there are always those who take advantage of the peace and quiet that can be found in the more tranquil parts of the city that are on the […]

Lazy Summer Days

It’s summer here in Panama.  I know that’s hard for those who live up North to believe.  While most people in cold climates are bundled up in wool coats and thermal underwear, we are strolling around in our shorts and t-shirts searching for a bit of shade to shield us from the glaring sun.  I […]

George (AKA Guantanamera)

George, my favorite street musician, has turned his banjo in for a ukulele.  He explained that his banjo suffered irreparable damage so he decided to try something new.  Here he is tuning up, getting ready to please the crowd with his usual repertoire of songs.  

Charming Cafes

Panama is known for its good eateries and cafes.  You can dine out every night and never eat in the same place.  Casco Viejo is a perfect example of the variety that is available.  Here are just a few of the options you can choose from in while your touring Casco Viejo.

The Colors of Summer

Panama explodes with color in the summer. Bright, multicolored flowers create brilliant splashes  against a clear blue sky. The sun is radiant yellow and creates beautiful shining diamonds on the water.  Sometimes the contrast of bright hues is just breathtaking.   

Man’s Best Friend

I was walking around the Casco and saw this cute little guy standing very obediently outside the door of a local hotel.  His owner  told him to wait for him, dropped the dog’s leash and  then went inside. I stood and watched him for a few minutes and he never once budged from his spot. […]
