New Hotel in Casco! Welcome La Concordia

Panama Casco Viejo, Casco Antiguo I love how Casco continues to transform properties that just a few years ago were considered “outside” of the “area”.  Casco continues to evolve, and now it is the turn for our version of the Five Points, meaning the five corners where Central and 11th street meet.  At this time, four out of five corners are active or will be activated in the next few months. This weekend, La Concordia, the most beautiful one opened. We went to celebrate Father´s day and to take a look! here are some photos.

Each book a story: Arco´s Books

Panama, Casco Viejo, Casco Antiguo At Arco, we love books. The minute you get into our office, you´ll see them all around. Some people use books as conversation pieces, or as part of the decor. For us, it is far more, as each one has a story behind and a reason on why they are there.

The Pythagoras Method

Panama, Casco Viejo, Casco Antiguo It kind of started as a joke, but I actually tried it with a client who was having trouble visualizing the apartment she wanted to buy on pre sales. When I started in this business I had tons of trouble myself, imagining spaces and sizes so I could relate to her struggle. I am a very visual person myself. So I came up with: “let´s just draw it in the sand” idea, since the beach is literally one block away from Arco Properties office. So we went there, armed with a measuring tape and a … Continue reading

Belgian Beer Cafe

Panama Casco Viejo, Casco Antiguo If you are a beer connoseiur, ´t Bier Klooster is your spot. Located at Casa Neuman, in front of Ocho y Medio, this small hangout has a wide variety of Belgian beer ranging from my favorite wheat beers to the crazy red beers.

Creative Solutions: iphones, laptops and more!

Panama, Casco Viejo, Casco Antiguo Ops! dropped my phone and  broke the screen. How many times we´ve gone through something like this. And then what a pain: while there are several ways to go about it, the awful truth is that most likely we will allow this situation to go on and on until it starts cutting our face or not even being able to use the touchscreen again. And by then we are on a different stress diagnosis. No need! if you live in Casco, just go Creative Solutions. Located at 3rd street , at Los Del Patio, they … Continue reading
