The guide book said it was a bit rough around the edges, that you'll either love it or hate it, and that there was a good chance of being mugged, but surprisingly we quite liked it! This place has UNESCO world heritage status due to its unrivalled history of a major port prior to the opening of the Panama canal and the unique 'ascensors', small funicular railways acting as lifts from sea-level into the hills. The colourful streets up in the hills were tired but still charming in places.
