“These are the ruins from Panama's first city. It is a historic preservation site with a remarkable view of the coastal belt (Costa Cintera) and the city. It also boasts a fantastic museum that provides a lot of historic information about Panamanian culture. ”

“Este debes visitarlo solo si y solo si....andas muy pero muy ajustado de tu presupuesto. Digamos que esta es la versión económica de Chicken Box. Es pollo asado. Excelente sabor y excelente precio (difícil de encontrar en Panamá aunque no lo creas) debes tomar en cuenta que por lo mismo es muy demandado y las colas para ordenar son enormes y ademas no cuentan con AC para su área de mesas.”
