Casco Viejo is a walkable part of Panama City, with great places for coffee, drinks, meals, artisan crafts.

The bigger hotels will have pools and restaurants, but you will need taxis for off site activities.

Its a good choice if you got a good rate, very good location(assuming it is the Wyndham Veneto)

A bit of a party hotel, lots of working girls in the casino but seeing you are from Vegas, you should not have any issues, has a nice pool and lots of good restaurants within walking distance, just dont take the cabs waiting out front, walk to the corner and grab on in the treet.

Sorry did not get to finish post - quiet it is not, but if you are looking for quiet Panama City is ot a good choice.

Gets mixed reviews on TA, lots of negative comments on the women in the casino, if hookers offend you then book somewhere else, but they wont pester you if you dont have interest in them
