Do you love street art?

I do, and look for it everywhere I travel.

In Panama City, you don’t have to search that hard. The historic area of Casco Viejo is easily walkable and full of artistic surprises. Scope around the main plaza where Iglesia de la Merced (church) is or zip down a shady street of crumbling colonial buildings and gems will pop out of nowhere.

I found some of the best art at a parking lot wall for crikey sakes!

There’s something wildly creative about street art. What does this art do, but give an immediate gut reaction?

You love it, hate it, but one thing is for sure, street art is the best use of urban space I’ve ever seen.

Panama City delivers! Just another aspect to this surprising city.

We’ll start with a tiger (and some strange bird-like creature).
