    • Is a 5 hour transit in Panama enough to visit?

      Panamá City Nov 17, 2014 at 5:39 PM

      Hello everybody!

      I'm going back from Cuba soon through Panama city airport. I'll arrive to Panama on a Tuesday at 6.24PM, and my flight takes off at 11.52PM. Therefore I was wondering if that would leave me enough time to get out of the airport and have a look. I'd love to see the canal and a bit of Panama city, which I heard is beautiful.

      Another question: as a French citizen am I required to have a visa or something to get out?

      Thank you ;)

      Solo trip to Panama: rent a car or not?

      Panama Oct 30, 2014 at 8:21 AM

      I will be in Panama for about 8-9 days in January. My main interest is in birding and other nature-y stuff, for which I would like to get away from Panama City for most of the trip. I am contemplating renting a car to drive around the countryside and get to more distant destinations that are difficult to reach by public transit, but I wonder if this is wise (I drove in Costa Rica in 2006 and many roads were utterly horrendous). Money is not a big concern, but freedom, safety, and convenience are.

      My other question is whether 8-9 days is enough time to get to 3 destinations in Panama, or should I be less ambitious? The good sites seem to be Soberania NP, Chiriqui/Volcan Baru, and Darien--although Darien might be tough to do in this short time frame. I am considering Soberania, somewhere around Volcan Baru, and a last "R&R" stop in Bocas del Toro.

      Any comments or suggestions would be welcome!

      One week in Panama - a few questions

      Panama Oct 17, 2014 at 10:12 AM

      My wife and I are planning on taking a quick one-week trip in January or February this year. I was poking around online and found a really cheap flight to Panama-Tocumen.

      We just got home from a long trip through the Balkans and earlier this year had a great time in Morocco but got really sick. So we're looking for something with a more relaxing pace. However, we know we'll get bored sitting on a beach for more than a couple of days. So we're hoping for a trip that has a bit of a balance to it - not too much time in the city, not too much time on the beach, some new experiences, etc.

      With that in mind, if you were to take advantage of the flight deal and head to Panama for a week, where would you suggest staying? In Casco Vieja for a few days, see the sights and the canal, etc. Then escape somewhere to experience nature or the beach. Where would you recommend?

      Thanks in advance!

    • Vacation in Panama City[PTY]

      Panamá City Sep 27, 2014 at 4:50 PM

      Early next year I would like a change for 2-4 weeks.Instead of beach why not check out a city, say, Panama City, Panama.It seems to have a lot to interest me besides the good weather at that time. How long should I stay ? What might be too long , or too short????????? There are malls, casinos, places of historical interest etc. What area recommended? San Francisco ? Cangrejo or where else? We are 2 active Jubilados and like to explore. What places to stay in ??? All advice very welcome. Patrick

    • Taxi fare to Panama City fromTocumen International Airport.

      Panamá City Aug 30, 2014 at 3:25 PM

      I am looking for a simpler and most cost effective way to get to city from International Airport in Panama City.

      It seems that taxi cost is $30+

      Is there no Shuttle or a bus or something ? I have no appreciable luggage. (Just a cabin bag)
      A day stop (14 hrs.) seems to long to sit around at the Airport and near $60 round trip to town sounds to be bit much. Any suggestion would be highly appreciated. Thannks.

      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
