You’ll realise this pretty quickly on your Panama Cruise, that Panama City should be the capital of Central America. It has all the gritty vibe of Miami, “the laissez faire” of Vegas and the colonial soul of Cuba.
Originally Panama was the major conduit for gold and silver through the Americas. More recently a lot of funny money ended up transiting Panama city with the explosion of banks in the 70’s and 80’s until George Bush decided to have a crack at Manuel Noriega in 1989. Today Panama is an eco-tourism paradise mixed with urban chic skyscrapers and all the trappings of old world deluxe coffee bars and genuine Panama sombreros. Of course the “ocean to ocean” Panama Canal cruises have roared in popularity and are not to be missed on any bucket list of cruisers.
