A UNESCO World Heritage Site,Casco Viejo is a lively area filled with 16th century buildings and lots of bars, cafes and restaurants. The diablico sucio stands outside of the traditional Panamanian restaurant, appropriately named, Diablicos. I didn't eat in the restaurant but I did stop to hug the colorful devil character. Luckily for me, he didn't have his stick for any impromptu whipping. I headed back to Westin Playa Bonita, which sponsored the Panamanian exploration, and relaxed in the chic confines of the Oasis Lounge. The dynamic sounds of cumbia and salsa transported me back to contemporary Panama, although I was still on the lookout for that diablo sucio and his stick..
