48 Hours in... Panama City

An aerial view of the city

Where to stay

Panama City isn’t exactly lacking in hotels but the five star Bristol stands out among a wealth of good options. With 125 comfortable rooms offering views of Panama City’s great architecture, it’s the ultimate choice if money is no object. Visit thebristol.com

Where to go
With the Pacific to the west and the Atlantic to the east, Panamanians are masters of fusion cuisine. Hotel, bar and restaurant Tantalo serves mouth-watering Latin American food with Indian and oriental influences. And there’s a buzzy roof-top bar for dancing off those calories.

Where to club
If you’ve only got one night in Panama City and you want to go all out, head to the roof of the 66 storey Hard Rock Hotel where DJs keep revellers dancing until the early hours. What it lacks in chilled latin vibes it makes up for in breathtaking views across the city. Visit hrhpanamamegapolis.com
