Panama is one of the most fascinating countries in Central America and its capital is at the very heart of where it’s at. In fact, Panama City is one of the best destinations to base your stay and there are plenty of central four and five-star luxury hotels in which to retreat to take it all in.
From contemporary sky rise developments with modern cocktail bars to exclusive boutiques, there’s a Panama hotel for everyone – some of which are so luxurious that they’ll even make you forget that you’re slap bang in the heart of one of the world’s liveliest and most bustling cities.
But perhaps the best bit is that all of Panama City’s hotels are within easy reach of the capital’s main attractions, from the best restaurants to the most stylish shops to the trendiest casinos, clubs and bars. Now all you have to do is get there!
