Visit Santa Ana with this new App

Panamá, Casco Viejo, Casco Antiguo

Many don´t realize Santa Ana is part of Casco Viejo. For many year, the Plaza Santa Ana was the political epicenter of the whole town: marches, gatherings, protests and celebrations.  Their streets have tons of history and characters, and now you can tour them with the help of an app by LiveWalkPty .  It has 12 stories “told” by Chaflán, a local charater. From poetry to the history of buildings, this is an interesting way to learn about our beloved city.

Pedro Mandinga, Cuban flavor in Casco Viejo

Panama Casco Viejo, Casco Antiguo

Beautifull interiors, Cuban music and their own rum label, Pedro Mandinga has opened at Portal de Caldas, right in front of Villa Agustina. Loved to see the small distillary at the entrance and three aging rum barrils. A great place to hang out, order some entrees, and try their cocktails, many of which include the house rum (even the main dishes).

It has been said so many times, but it is so absolutely true: what you put in your body matters.  Well, it also has to look good and taste good, and be easy to make, and easy to get ingredients…. oh my! the list is long!

But don´t worry, here is a great way to get you inspired. I started reading Aris La Tham bio and what he has in his website and looked amazing. CLICK HERE to check it out, and if you like what you see… come to the workshop!
