If you want to see a side of Panama City that’s not normally visited by tourists and be immersed with locals, you must spend a day with Victor Perez, the founder of LOCAL IN PTY.
He’s taking visitors to the neighborhood of El Chorrillo, just a few blocks from the trendy Casco Viejo historic district, but contrasting in every way. People normally perceive El Chorrillo as being run down with social problems, crimes, violence, and former gangs.
You’ll find beautifully renovated colonial buildings, stylish restaurants, fancy bars, and boutique hotels. Nowadays, it is a safe area to walk around and very popular for tourists and locals.
Learn how the rapid gentrification of Casco Viejo has left the surrounding areas and its people to be forgotten. When the government and private investors started seeing the potential of this area, they started removing the poor people from this area to El Chorrillo.
