On this historic tour of Panama City, you will see everything about Panama from its colonial days to the new and modern Panama, including the canal. On this full day tour you will visit:
- Panamá Viejo Historical Monument Complex, also known as Panamá La Vieja, is the remaining part of the old Panama City and former capital of the country. This is an excellent site to appreciate the historical structures of the first city founded by the Spanish on the Pacific coast.
- Mi Pueblito, which means “My Little Village”. This little village showcases the prevailing customs, traditions and history of our country. All in one area, you can step inside a typical Afro-Caribbean, peasant and Indigenous house that showcases the main characteristics of these various cultures.
- Casco Viejo also called Casco Antiguo (the Old Town), this is the historic district of Panama City, built in 1673 following the near-total destruction of the original Panamá city, Panamá Viejo.
- Afro-Antillian Museum: this museum pays tribute to the 30,000-plus black West Indians who made up the vast majority of the Canal’s foreign laborers, many of whom died doing this dangerous work. See reconstructed examples of Afro-Antillanos’ dismal living conditions, photos and artifacts.
You will also be able to see the Cinta Costera, Avenida Balboa, Las Americas Bridge and the Fish Market (Mercado de Mariscos).
