The El Carmen neighborhood is nothing if not colorful. Both physically and figuratively! Enjoy this photo montage of some highlights that caught my eye on a drive through this barrio, just south of downtown Puerto Armuelles.
Beauty really is in the eye of the beholder. At first glance, el Carmen (also known as “Silver City”) is a run-down and congested little neighborhood, with houses too close together and narrow streets running through it. There is almost always a lot going on here, from traffic to the bustling activities of people, dogs, and street vendors. Look a little closer and this interesting barrio will reveal its true colors to you!
