Myself and a friend are planning a winter away from the cold North Atlantic . We are looking at renting a 2 bedroom house / apt near the beach and within walking distance of markets , bars and restaurants from Nov 1- May 1. Would Uverito Beach, Los Santos area be a good choice? Do you have any names of rental agencies ? We are using Craigs List. Thanks so much for your time - Joan
Hello, My girlfriend and I are going to Panama in mid june for two weeks (I know not the best time of year for it weather wise!) and we need some help in planning the trip...we don't know anyone who has been before! We fly in and we fly out of the city so that has to be our start and end destination. We plan to finish off the trip in the city in a hotel which came with our flights but for the 11-12 days before we want to get out and explore the country backpacker style. We definitely want to go to Bocas Del Toro and I would be interested in doing the cloud-forest hiking in the north on the border of Costa Rica. Looking at the map an idea I had was to travel the Pacific Ocean coast and over 8 days make our way to Bocas and then fly back internally to the city. Would this be a good idea and does the West coast cater well for the backpacker?
I have also heard the San Blas on the East coast is amazing but with the location and timescales I think that perhaps it might be trying to do too much?
Any advice would be hugely appreciated as we need to get planning as we are going out in the middle of the school holidays it seems! Thank you Seb and Laura
