Casco Viejo is the old quarter of Panama City, which is said to be similar to old Havana. It has many narrow streets, old monumental houses and also the cathedral of Panama City which is worth visiting. Also a visit to the Panama Canal museum, across the street from the cathedral, is worth visiting! I ended up spending much more time in this museum than expected. Nearby is La Peatonal, which is a long streets only for pedestrains where you'll find plenty of shopping: electronics, jewelry, clothes, perfumes etc. Many inhabitants of Panama City daily walk around this area and also visiting the market nearby, looking for fresh fruits and vegetables. This area and also Casco Viejo has some nice parks where you can just sit down and enjoy a good "raspado" down
