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.
