Bargains are a way of life in the bustling six-block pedestrian mall towards the western end of Avenida Central. The city's original shopping area, it now has a dollar-store mentality and a three-story El Machetazo department store where you'll share the escalator with Guna women in their traditional dress. Venture down the alley towards Avenida B to explore wooden stalls selling everything from herbal potions to university textbooks. For trivia fans, Café Coca Cola at Plaza Santa Ana is the oldest café in Panama and where the first Coca Cola was sold in the country in 1906.
