    • 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 ;)

      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

      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.

      getting into Panama City from Tocumen

      Panamá City Feb 17, 2014 at 3:22 PM

      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

      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 ?

    • Where to stay in PC - young couple

      Panamá City Feb 6, 2014 at 7:31 PM

      Looking for a good neighborhood to stay for 3-5 nights in Panama City. Will be traveling with only my boyfriend and we'd like to be around places that have plenty of restaurants, bars, and cafes for walking around at night and within taxi-distance to other sights/cultural activities in the city. From my research so far, El Cangrejo and Bellavista seem to be the most-trodden neighborhoods that meet my criteria but I'd prefer something less touristy. Casco Viejo sounds wonderful and much more to my liking but I'm reading mixed reviews around whether or not there's enough nightlife. Don't need big loud clubs but just would love to be able to end our late nights with drinks and good food near wherever we stay - so my question is should which of these (or any other) neighborhoods would be best? Thanks!

      Hi there. I will be visiting Panama City in a few weeks and am trying to determine the best way to visit the canal beyond just a visit to the Miraflores Locks.

      Is it worth it to take a boat that will do a partial transit of the canal? Should I head to the Gatun Locks?

      I have three days in Panama City.

      Panama City to Bocos - driving?

      Panamá City Nov 7, 2013 at 3:10 PM

      How is the drive from Panama city from Bocos or is it not recommended?

      I can also fly and that will be fine. However, once I get to Bocos is it easy to get around to go explore other areas.

      For example, how easy is it go get from the Pacific to the Carribean side if you wanted to?

      Late planning on this trip so trying to get a general plan of a attack.
