The building is an architectural gem. One of the world’s leading restoration architects, Francisco Montanes, and a cutting edge Spanish design group, Bersale, S.A., worked together for almost two years to restore La Isabela to its former elegance. Their vision was to adhere to UNESCO’s World Heritage Site Guidelines and maintain the 19th century elements of La Isabela’s colonial architecture while incorporating touches of cutting edge design. To complement their efforts, selected pieces of Panamanian art are exhibited throughout the building and the apartment. La Isabela – an integration of styles, materials, and perspectives ranging from the 19th to the 21st century. Guest Access The apartment has a large front balcony on the street and offers access to a 1300 sq ft (130 sqm) internal courtyard with outdoor Balinese showers so you can cool off and lounge chairs for relaxation and outdoor dining.

The Neighborhood La Isabela is in the heart of Casco Antiguo, just steps away from art, restaurants, culture, night-life etc. The historic quarter of Panama City, also known as Casco Viejo, is located in the southwestern tip of Panama City,and overlooks the Pacific entrance to the canal, where huge container ships hover like shoppers on Black Friday. It’s cozy but not too small and nobody uses addresses. Architecturally encyclopedic, designated a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1997, it could easily be the setting for the next photo series by Robert Polidori. It’s erotic like Havana, moldering like New Orleans, world-weary like Cuernavaca, Mexico, and one of the safest places in Central America—all of this seasoned with a dash of The Night of the Iguana. The booming city beyond couldn’t be more different, with its Singapore skyline and Dubai aspirations (Forbes magazine described it a few years ago as “Monaco with bananas”). Since the handover of the canal to Panama in 1999, and even more so after 9/11, Panama City has become a stomping ground for tourists from everywhere, a place for them to get all the Carolina Herrera and Hermès they want without the prices of NYC or the hassle of Miami. You can choose to go to that part of town. In any case, the "New-towners" always come to Casco at night to play. After all, you are in one of the most vibrant neighborhood of Central America! Getting Around The system of buses is complex, and the metro only covers a small part of the city. However, we will give you small tips about what taxis to take when and where, where to go and not to go, how to come and get back from the airport. How and when to go outside of the city, to get a guide or a day-tour. As per walking the town, just talk to us and we will give you a map with all the super info and will mark and explain for you how to get there. Other Things to Note Cleaning and Health standards:
