For a tranquil stroll that will take your breath away, direct your steps towards the Paseo General Esteban Huertas at the southern end of Casco Viejo. A few steps lead up onto this breezy walkway, covered by trellises holding flowering vines over the broad promenade. From 1944 to 1946 the paseo was laid out atop the colonial-era Chiriquí bastion, a particularly well-preserved part of the old city wall. The location was doubtless chosen for the same reasons it's so remarkable today: primarily, for the unobstructed view across the Bay of Panama to the proud gathering of skyscrapers downtown. Bougainvillea climbs the trellis that arches over the promenade to provide partial shade and clusters of bright gorgeous blossoms, and a smattering of artisans set up their crafts along the sidelines for tourists to peruse and carry home.
