The remaining portion of the original Panama City after it was sacked and burned in 1671 by pirates led by Henry Morgan. Don't expect to find any shopping, dining, or clubbing here.
Basically the buildings and surrounding habitat were left in their natural state. View of distant urbanization abound however.
Historical significance - 5
Ease of location 4 - outside city limits
Safety - 4 -5 If you have a rental car make sure your valuables are locked out of sight because once you leave the parking lot there is only a booth to collect an entry fee and you'll lose sight of your vehicle. Also reachable by taxi or bus.
What to do - see the ruins - not much else
Entry fee - $4 - $6 US
Since I love to travel and try local food I will comment on my experiences, places, and food that I encounter so that others may be inspired to travel to the same locations with some insight into the local food , restaurants, culture, places to stay (hotels or airbnb) and hopefully avoid some of the pitfalls and tourist scams so not to waste time and money unnecessarily. I would also appreciate posts and comments on the same locations by others!
