Day 1: Welcome to Panama City and the Hotel Compania in Colonial Casco Antiguo!

Three different eras of Panama history come to life at Hotel La Compañia, where opulent modern design revitalizes a landmark location. Each of our three wings restores a piece of the old town (Casco Antiguo) to the height of contemporary luxury. Choose a beautifully curated room in the French Colonial wing, built by Jesuit priests in 1739; the Spanish Colonial wing, dating back to 1688; or the Beaux-Arts rooms in the American wing, which was once a high-end department store constructed in 1905.
