Navigating the Noteworthy: A Day in Panama City

Panama City, Panama

Dawn Arrival: Embrace the Panama City Port

Your cruise ship typically docks in the early hours of the morning at the bustling Panama City port. As the sun begins to color the cityscape, disembark to the vibrant energy of this Central American hub, teeming with cosmopolitan flair and rich history.

The Explorer's Expedition: Immerse in Panama City

Dive headfirst into the city's history at Casco Viejo, Panama City's old quarter. With its narrow cobblestone streets, colonial buildings, and plazas, it's a UNESCO World Heritage site brimming with charm. Don't forget to explore the Panama Canal Museum and the Metropolitan Cathedral for a rich history infusion.

Salty Sojourn: Panama City’s Beach Bliss

For beach enthusiasts, head to Veracruz Beach, a quick cab ride from the city. If time permits, consider a boat ride to the Pearl Islands for idyllic beaches, crystalline waters, and spectacular marine life.

Adrenaline Awaits: Panama City's Adventure Activities

For thrill-seekers, Panama City doesn't disappoint. Take a partial or full transit tour of the world-renowned Panama Canal. Alternatively, a jungle boat tour around Gatun Lake, or a day trip to the rainforest at Metropolitan Natural Park will get your pulse racing.

Feast in the City: Savoring Local Delicacies

No day is complete without tasting Panama City's culinary delights. Treat yourself to Sancocho, a Panamanian stew, and enjoy a serving of fresh Ceviche at the Mercado de Mariscos. Top it off with Chicheme, a local sweet drink made from corn and milk.

Wrapping Up: A Token from Panama City

End the day with a visit to the Mercado de Artesanías for traditional molas, hand-embroidered textiles by the Kuna people, or beautiful Panama hats. As the sun sets, make your way back to the ship, enriched by the day's experiences, ready to embrace the sea for the next port of call.
