Dubai of Latin America

Arguably the most modern of Central American cities, Panama City boasts a shimmering skyline of glass skyscrapers.
Step off the beaten path and head to Iglesia de la Merced and Iglesia de San Francisco de Asis. Shop till you drop at Multicentro Mall and Weil Art Gallery. Step out of Panama City to go to Portobelo and see Scuba & Snorkeling, which is approximately 1h 50 min away. And it doesn't end there: appreciate the extensive heritage of Casco Viejo, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Iglesia de San José, get engrossed in the history at Museo del Canal Interoceanico de Panama, and explore the ancient world of Panama La Vieja.

To see ratings, reviews, traveler tips, and more tourist information, you can read our Panama City road trip site.

Willemstad, Curacao to Panama City is an approximately 5.5-hour flight. You'll gain 1 hour traveling from Willemstad to Panama City due to the time zone difference. In July, plan for daily highs up to 36°C, and evening lows to 29°C. On the 24th (Wed), you'll have the morning to explore before heading off to Bocas Town.
