  • 3:00pm Explore the local art scene at the Weil Art Gallery (a 20 minute walk towards Casco Viejo), which showcases a range of remarkable paintings and sculptures, as well as handicraft, including contemporary pieces crafted by the indigenous Wounaan, Embera and Guna tribes of Panama. Or walk to A Priori Art Gallery (a 12 minute walk), which houses a rich collection of photographs, paintings and sculptures, as well as a permanent collection of masterpieces principally from Panama and Latin America.
  • 5:00pm Head to La Rana Dorada to sample some microbrews on the terrace (a great people watching spot), or the Istmo Brew Pub, another beer-lover’s dream: the first microbrewery in the country with 4 beers on tap, all named after Panamanian provinces (choose your own adventure between the Colon’s strong malty taste, refreshing hints of caramel in the Chiriqui, the dark bitter, coffee-like flavors of the Cocle or the coppery Veraguas).La Rana Dorada El Cangrejo
  • 7:00pm Dinner at Tsugoi, one of Panama’s best sushi spots.
