Visiting Casco Viejo

OK, OK, yesterday’s post might have been a bit of a Debbie Downer.  But not today’s post!

Today, we made our way to Casco Veijo.  Casco Veijo is the historic part of Panama City and has been inhabited since 1673 according to Wiki.  There are all kinds of things to see in Casco Viejo.

There are ruins:

But there are two things that are of utmost importance.

First, Casco Viejo has a kick ass brew pub.  When you walk in, they let you sample all of their beers for free.  Plus, they have the best beer pulls I have ever seen.

But, even more importantly, they have gelato.  If you are ever walking through Casco Veijo and come across this store, stop.  Trust me.
