Panama City is the capital and largest city of Panama, as well as its central travel hub, with plenty of things locally to visit as well.

Its historic center, together with the nearby archaeological ruins of Panamá Viejo, are a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Also worth visiting is the Panama Canal – an extraordinary project begun in 1881, interrupted for years because of various challenges, and finally completed in 1914. A third, wider lane of locks is currently under construction and is due to open in 2016.

Panama City is known as a very multicultural place, with large populations from other parts of the world.

Overall Atmosphere: Combination
Combination Atmosphere destinations combine elements of both cultural and natural destinations, where this combination is itself essential to the travel experience. Common examples are Archaeological Sites (where culture is usually experienced outdoors), Scenic Local Markets (where indigenous cultures interact outdoors), Hotsprings and Vineyard Areas (where nature provides the raw materials but humans create the surroundings), and Unique Cultural Landscapes (where humans and nature interact in innovative ways, as in the elaborate rice terracing systems of Asia).

Combination Interests typically fall somewhere in the middle of the three types of primary interests in terms of
(a) how climate-dependent they are
(b) how accessible and physically demanding they are.
Featuring both cultural and natural attractions.

Unusual Local Feature

The Panama Canal

This is a 77.1-kilometer (48 mi) ship canal in Panama that connects the Atlantic Ocean (via the Caribbean Sea) to the Pacific Ocean. The canal cuts across the Isthmus of Panama and is a key conduit for international maritime trade. The easiest and cheapest way is to go to the Miraflores locks, watch the huge boats go by and stop in at the visitor's center, which has a museum.
Archeological Sites
Panamá Viejo ("Old Panama") is the name for the architectural vestiges of the Monumental Historic Complex of the first Spanish city founded on the Pacific coast of the Americas in 1519. The site is now ruins after it was sacked by the pirate Henry Morgan in the 1600s.
