Have a stroll and a bite to eat/coffee
Nov. 2021 • Couples
We decided against staying in this area and instead visiting it - and I think you can’t go wrong staying here or just visiting. It was $4 uber ride from the Mira Flores locks. Grabbed lunch at Fonda Loque hay and then set of walking. A lot of turismo police presence but felt safe. Great for photo ops. Some nice squares with local artisans and music. Some touristy trinket shops too. Coffee houses aplenty.

Pleasantly surprised!
Oct. 2021 • Couples
We stayed in the area - it’s great for walking to the sights , church’s, parks, shops & restaurants ! Lots to see and do! Felt safe as they have different types of friendly police roaming around. The place is very clean, and many places getting renovated. The bathrooms we encountered in restaurants, coffee shops, etc. were very clean!!! The restaurants we stopped at had very good food & again very clean- offering hand sanitizer, wiping the tables & wearing masks!😷
Take an Uber for transportation- very inexpensive!!

Wonderful 3 days in the old city
Oct. 2021 • Couples
Had an excellent three days in Casca Viejo after a week in Bocas Del Toro. We stayed in the historic district and walked the streets, souvenirs shopped and was pleasantly surprised at how non aggressive the shop keepers were. This made for pleasant days. We highly recommend a day or two of enjoying the old city to all.

A must see. The area has been beautifully restored although there is still much left to be done. Boutique cafe's, smart trendy hotels, quaint plazas, museums - all set against the backdrop of the pacific ocean.

Beautifully Restored

Visited at night and during the day. Beautifully restored architecture to explore, and great views of the water. Well worth the visit.

It is a rip off
Aug. 2021
Casco Viejo is a nice atmospheric place to visit and have a bite or a drink. Sadly, it is catering substantially to the tourist sector, thus , restaurants, bars, coffee shops and taxis try to squeeze every cent from tourists . Safety, can be an issue too with the risk changing from one block to another .
