Do you dream of staying somewhere full of reclaimed wood, craft cocktails, man buns, and gourmet coffee shops? Here’s a look at the best 7 “hipster-friendly” hotels in Panama City, Panama.

Tantalo

Tantalo is located in the hip historic area of Casco Viejo and was one of the first boutique hotels in Panama City to focus on designing creative spaces for their guests. Each room has been uniquely designed by local artists using inspiration from the tropical city life around them and throughout the hotel are items that are upcycled into lighting, furniture, and decor. The main floor restaurant features an amazing 4-story live plant wall that utilizes reclaimed rainwater surrounded by mesmerizing murals covering all the walls. Be sure to visit the hipster-friendly rooftop bar for a fantastic view of the city skyline and a craft cocktail.
