Casio Virgo is the place to be in Panama City. It is easy to walk around the area. There is a lot to do here. Many great restaurants and easy access to other parts of the city. This is the place to be.

Great place full of history, little shops, restaurants and bars. Don't try to get there by car use a taxi or uber. Traffic in and out is crazy. Lot of walking so wear comfy shoes, sunscreen and do not forget to get your Panama Hat
