About the property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Den, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)


The Tribe Building sits on a small quiet street yet enjoys all the benefits of being in the heart of Casco Viejo, one of the most sought after places in all of Panama City with many nearby shops, restaurants and cafes. We are just steps from Plaza Bolivar and the Presidential Palace and still only 10 minutes by Taxi to central shopping and Super Markets.

Take a stroll along the ocean and admire the ever-growing city skyline or meander through the quiet streets of Casco Viejo in search of a shady cafe or any one of Plaza Bolivar's popular outdoor restaurants. The Tribe building has the very unique benefit of being situated between both Plaza Bolivar and the Presidential Palace thereby making it not only one of the most interesting and exciting areas of Panama City but also one of the safest in the entire city.

The balconies at Tribe afford spectacular views of the ocean and the Panama City skyline. Tribe’s subtle entryways make for shady days and quiet nights, all with the feel of a jaunt back in time. However, each of our apartments is furnished with modern amenities including Satellite TV, high-speed wireless internet, air conditioning, a full kitchen, dining area and a large bathroom.


Master bedroom has a full bath with a king-size bed as well as a den area with full-size bed. The suite has a large full-size kitchen as well as a spacious sitting and dining area that opens to a full-size balcony with ocean and city views.

The suite has air conditioning throughout, color TV, ceiling fans and full size closet. The kitchen has a refrigerator, stove with oven, microwave, coffee maker, dish washer, washer and dryer, cooking pots and pans with utensils for dining and seating for four.

Hi-Speed Wireless Internet, Satellite TV and Local Cell Phone provided.


Casco Viejo (Casco Antiguo) or San Felipe, is the oldest city in Central America and at the heart and soul of Panamanian architecture. Its picturesque buildings, red brick cobblestone streets, and age-old religious landmarks were honored in 1997 when UNESCO declared it a World Heritage Site.

The diverse sense of culture and history could be represented no place better. Take a leisurely walk where the colonial architecture, friendly people and ocean breezes are reminiscent of a step back in time. Plus, the restaurants and Cafe's in Casco Viejo are second to none in Panama City.

Casco Viejo is only minutes from the center of Panama City by Taxi even though you’ll have no desire to leave.

About The Owner

Thank you for taking an interest in Panama and in the Tribe Building. Please also see our 351142 and 386562 listings. We hope you decide to stay with us and have a wonderful time. Thank you.

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2005

Why The Owner chose Panama City

The choice to buy a property in Panama was an easy one. Panama City provides for a personal desire to have both the 'old world' mixed in with a modern day city. Casco Viejo is a beautiful sanctuary just across the bay from the more modern metropolis of Panama City. The area near Plaza Bolivar is full of historical beauty and cultural tastes of Panama. Panama in general is a stable country with a great future ahead of it. With all the amazing beaches and beautiful mountains so close, you can enjoy all the beauty the world has to offer in this small country.

What makes this apartment unique

The Tribe Building is located one block from the Presidential Palace, historical buildings, National Theatre and Church in one of the safest areas of Panama. Casco Viejo is a wonderful place to relax and enjoy a beautiful day and pleasant evening. Spending days and nights in this historical neighborhood is beautiful. With the center of the Panama City just minutes away, you have the best of the old world and the new. It's great.

Great apartment in an excellent location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for three nights and it was a perfect location to explore Casco Viejo. The apartment is spacious and charming. A great patio to view the water and the guards protecting the presidential palace. We felt safe and welcomed. There are two sets of stairs to consider, but it wasn't a problem for us. The kitchen is huge. Sergio, the caretaker was great and met us after a late airport arrival. They can arrange for airport pick up at reasonable rates.

Great place!!

I stayed here for nine days in July and really enjoyed myself. The atmosphere is absolutely amazing!! The view of the city from the balcony, the safe feeling of being surrounded by guards, and excellent food and entertainment just minutes away is awesome.

Perfect location & great local help

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with a friend for three nights. The location is perfect for staying in Casco Viejo. Easy walking to all the nice spots to eat/drink. Much less hectic and more scenic than the downtown area. The apartment's local caretaker, Sergio, was a wonderful host and knows everything about the area. He picked me up at the airport and also picked my friends up a day later. He assisted them with renting a car at the airport and according to them, "Saved the day!" I would stay here again if I come back.

wonderful home in casco viejo!

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I stayed here for a week, the place was awesome! It is very spacious, like others have said the pictures dont do it justice. We were greated at the airport by Sergio. (He was wonderful) we ended up using him for transportation throughout the week. If he wasnt available he had his cousin there to help. We would highly recommend this place to anyone. It was in a nice location with restaurants and bars close by. It is right across from the presidential palace so as others have mentioned there were security guards on the corners so it was very safe! Richard the owner was great at getting back to me and answering any questions that we had. We would definately return and I have already passed info on to some friends planning on visiting the area soon. I miss casco!

Beyond Expectations!

  • 4 of 5

Exceptional location, comfortable accommodations and attentive staff made this an ideal Christmas holiday for my family in 2014. Located adjacent to the Presidential Palace with spectacular views across the bay to Panama City's dazzling skyline, our stay in the old city felt as if we'd always had our own private apartment in the best neighborhood of any World Capital. Rick's great customer service and seasoned staff, including Sergio, who picked us up at the airport when we arrived and delivered us safely back upon our departure, made all the difference. 6 terrific restaurants less than 300 feet from our front door along Plaza Simon Bolivar offered up local and international cuisine and a hub of friendly hospitality from morning 'til night. Just beyond the Plaza, more great food and drink, museums, churches, shops and markets were conveniently close. I will stay here again and highly recommend it!

Excellent Location

  • 4 of 5

Hi we are a family of 3 with 2 adults and 1 18-month old child. We stayed at the apartment for 4 nights, and we loved it! The unit is very spacious with more than enough room for us, we didn't even use the 2nd bedroom. The kitchen and dining room is huge, and the kitchen is well stocked. The location in the old city is absolutely fantastic and you are only a few steps away from lots of good restaurants and the old city sights. Richard was extremely helpful in booking our stay and helping with pickup and other details. Next time we're in Panama City we will be back!
