Panama City is often nicknamed The Dubai of Latin America because of its immense economic growth in recent years and impressive dense skyline.

Panama City gay guide: best bars, clubs, hotels and things to do

Most will associate Panama City with the famous canal, which is a reason alone to visit. The city is also the gateway to some gorgeous tropical beaches within Panama, like San Blas and further afield – Bocas del Toro.

We stayed in Panama City for a week and found it to be a lot of fun, full of things to do, plenty of trendy bars, but most importantly, we left with a thirst to return. This is our gay guide to Panama City following our experience here during our big Latin America trip.
