    • lost items in taxi

      Panamá City Yesterday

      I may have forgotten my cell phone in a cab, is there a taxi company that I could get ahold of to ask if it was found or is it hopeless?

      Panama Jun 22, 2014 at 11:07 PM

      Hi we will be traveling to Panama next month and plan on visiting a ton of places while there.
      First question, we plan on traveling by rental car from PC to David, Boquete, then on to Bocas Del Toro. Is this a good idea? or is it better to take the bus?

      Second questions, are there any must see attractions for small kids both are under 6?

      Thank you

      Panamá City Jun 13, 2014 at 8:21 AM

      We will be touring with the Caravan tour company. We will be arriving in the city a few days
      earlier than the start of the tour. What would you suggest we see in Panama city itself?
      We are going to the Canal and other sites so I do not want to revisit those places.
      I had thought about the hop on hop off tour by Viator...have you experience with that group? Or can you suggestion some other places we can visit independently?
      Appreciate all suggestions...We do not speak Spanish. Regards, Evelyn

We want a good location that has bars, restaurants and is close to the main sites ie. the canal, plaza da francia, plaza de Bolivia, etc. Can anyone recommend?

      Islas San Blas or not

      Comarca de San Blas May 5, 2014 at 11:21 AM

      Two places are on my wish list when I visit Panama in June. It is Islas San Blas and Isla de Coiba, but now I’m starting to doubt about Islas San Blas.

      I have read old posts in forums and read reviews about different islands and accommodation is Islas San Blas. Some people describe the islands as paradise, while others don’t. I have read that the small islands can be really crowded (Coco Blanco and Kuanidup), food is no good (dry white bread in the morning and pasta), there is a lot of noise at night and impossible to sleep, there are table tennis and volleyball courts, you have to pay extra for everything (like using a hammock) only one very short excursion is offered each day etc.

      A few questions:

      1. Will it be crowded in June too?

      2. What is your experience? Can anyone recommend a good island, where it is peaceful and where they make good excursions. I don’t mind rustic nor sleeping in a tent.

      3. What about the sailing trips around Islas San Blas? I have read they are no longer allowed, but on the other hand I saw a review made by someone who had recently been on one.

      4. Is it possible to book a tour to Islas San Blas in Panama City, only one or two days before going?

      Isla de Coiba

      Isla de Coiba May 2, 2014 at 10:45 AM

      I will visit Panama in the end of June, which is considered to be low season.

      If I go to Santa Catalina, how easy will it be to find tours to Isla de Coiba that time of year? Will there be other people around to share the costs with? Most of all I'm interested in multiday tours.

      What is the current price for tours (daytours/multiday tours) from Santa Catalina to Isla de Coiba?

      Budget accommodation in Panama City

      Panamá City Apr 26, 2014 at 2:03 PM

      I have been looking around at some booking sites (and on VT) but can't really find what I'm looking for. And I don't really know which area is good to stay in. What about Casco Viejo and Bellavista?

      Can anyone recommend a nice budget accommodation in Panama City?

      I don't want to stay in a dorm, and I don't want to stay at a party hostel. I prefer not to pay more than $30 for a single room but if it is worth it I can pay a bit more.

    • Itinerary for 4 1/2 of 7!

      Panama Feb 28, 2014 at 11:37 AM

      We are arriving in PTY at 1:30am on a tuesday. We are in the Panama area until Saturday when our cruise leaves Colon at 5pm...
      Could someone suggest an itinerary that makes sense for us to follow?
      We are interested in seeing a little of the city, the canal, rainforest, fishing, wildlife(monkeys, etc..) A day trip to El Valle?
      Not sure where to stay that would be economical for our family of 7. (our kids are 18, 16, 15, 12 and 10)
      Renting a car from PTY and returning it in Colon before boarding our cruise...or should we take the train into Colon for that experience.
      We usually do beachy vacations so thats not necessary to include in these 4 days.
      Please any suggestions are welcome!!

      flying into Tocumen Panama at 11 am .. and cannot believe they only have taxis to the city.. I heard there was a bus close by but you need to get a token as the driver downs take cash....and they don't sell them at the airport...seems like it s geared to make it expensive for the tourist to get out of the airport.. however I heard there is a mall nearby in walking distance from the airport where I might buy a token to get on the bus.....Does anybody have any info on that? thanks

      will be in Panama City only one day and a half

      Panamá City Feb 15, 2014 at 6:11 PM

      I wondered if there were a place close( say 2 hours or so by bus) from panama City where I could go back and forth in a day just to taste local flavor and see a bit of the country from a bus.... I get into Panama city early on a FRiday and leave Saturday afternoon... I can check out the city at night, and the second day, just though I d hop on one of their famous buses for a few hours to get to see the lay of the land... where would someone recommend that's typical, local colour and still leaves me enough time to get there, have a meal and come back in a space of maybe 6 or 7 hours ?
