Panama City was a real surprise. A massive conglomeration of steel and glass towers with a beautiful old Spanish colonial core. There is a vibrant night scene at the foot of Trump Tower with dozens of al fresco bars and restaurants overlooking the most amazing Pacific sunsets. The best spot to enjoy a Mojito.
