Hacienda Los Molinos is a great Panamanian retreat which sits on the edge of a canyon with incredible views. Located in the Highlands of Boquete, more precisely along the River Canyon Cochea, this gorgeous estate is a well known meeting point for foreigners as it has a hotel and fancy restaurant.
Place-des-Arts is a beautiful art venue nested in the middle of the Montreal. It's one of my favourite places in the city. It's a great spot to hangout as there is always something to see, do or hear in there. It is the largest cultural and artistic complex in Canada.

First time I landed in Panama, years ago, it was during the day. Back then I did not get to see the stunning views of the city at night. That year I was on my way to Ecuador and I had a stop over in Panama City. I spent only a few hours there, as I was only in transit. I can't explain how surprised
