Since I always fly Copa Airlines when travelling in the Americas, I always have to connect flight in Panama. Sometimes it’s just an hour in transit and other times it’s a day. Panama is a beautiful country, apart from time spent here in transit; I have visited this precious country three times in the past.
Well, when next you find yourself in transit in Panama and you have a few hours before your next flight, there are several sites to check out in Panama City. The Panama Canal is one; there is Albrook mall (a bit far from the airport); Metro mall (very close to the airport and there is a free round-trip shuttle from the airport); the Afro-Antillano museum (interesting place to learn about the Afro culture in Panama, cost $1, address is Calle 24 Este y Avenida Justo Arosemena); and Casco Viejo.
FYI, do you know the Tocumen International Airport has a church, I think it is new because I did not notice it before
