Cry for Independce

by MPem Online Now Aug 3, 2004 at 8:54 AM

I plan to be in Los Santos, Panama, during the "First Cry For Independence" celebration this November. My guide books don't have much to say. Has anyone been? Activity and accomadation input would be sooo appreciated. I'm basically a budget traveler, but will splurge if need be.

    Dear VT Friend, the celebration of the first cry for independence is a great celebration on that province by november 10th. the place must be crowded so you better be there from some 2 or 3 days in advantage. that celebration is not on books because is pure panamanian nationality, so i can tell yopu is one of the off the beating path...for tourist. Los Santos province has an area of 3,806 sq. km, and is therefore the scond smallest of the Panamanian provinces. Population in 1996 was 79,849 inhabitants. Provincial capital is Las Tablas. Los Santos province is bordering Herrera province on south. Both provinces have a shore on the Pacific Ocean. The place is quiet safe enough, the joy is sure. there are some web pages to help you for accomodations, but maybe are only in spanish..los santos isnt a big city! but full of tradition. there is a place called Los Guayacanes, it could be the greates hotel on the region, maybe not expensed for you. ot os near the los santos city...i will look for the w eb address, but you said are a budget traveler, well, welcome to Los Santos and Panama!!! try www.lossantosonline.com or www.chitrenet.net www.ipat.gob.pa/hoteles/hotel-losantos.html www.ipat.gob.pa/hoteles/hotel-herrera.html any question...will me my pleasure! have a nice trip!

    quime, Thank you so much for your help. I've read that the festival takes place on the nearest saturday to the 10th. Am I correct to assume that it will be on the 13th this year? Or will it be celebrated on the saturday before, like we often celebrate our holidays in the US? Thanks again. I've had a hard time tracking down this info. MPem
