Buying a motorbike in Panama

Hey guys,

My name is Gabriel, originally from France I just made it to panama city and I'm looking for a motorbike with US plates as I'll driving the bike from here to San Francisco where I'll be settling. I've heard that a lot of people are looking to sell their motorbike in panama city because crossing to columbia is complicated.

I have no idea where to look for that. I checked craigslist : nada. Any ideas?

Thanks,

Gabriel

Car rental at Playa Coronado

My wife and I will be spending about 10 days at Playa Coronado from Feb 8 to 18th. We want to rent a car for about 10 days to explore the area and have some independence. My research has come up with 4 options:
1. National car rental at the Decameron Hotel in Farallon.
2. Gold Coast Auto in Coronado.
3. Value Motors in Coronado.
4. Beaches Auto in Coronado.
Has anyone advice as to which company would be best?
Thanks

Flying into eastern guna yala

Hello,

I'm trying to get more information about flights into eastern Guna Yala. I read that the air panama website and info you can get on the phone is not super reliable, and this was confirmed through email. Basically, I want to know if there is an airport with regular flights between puerto Obaldia and Mulatupo. I see several airstrips on google earth, But none are listed as destinations on the air panama website.

If there aren't any other regular flights, I would like to know if there are…

Where to stay in Panama City

Hello all. We had a hotel booked in Casco Viejo (The Panamericana) from Dec 16-20 but unfortunately we've just been contacted to say this hotel has closed down. Our dates are fixed, and when we're in Panama City we'd ideally like to stay in the Casco Viejo area. However, after a search of the usual avenues I'm struggling to find somewhere within our budget (let's say under $100 a night)... everywhere seems to be booked up or at a fiendishly high price! Does anyone have any particular tips?…

Mastercard / Maestrocard in Bocas del Torro

Dear Community,

I will be in Bocas del Torro in about a week and I only have a Mastercard and a Maestrocard with me.
I heared that in Panama Mastercard is rarely accepted, thats why I am posting here, hoping that someone can tell me: If I can withdraw money on an ATM with a Mastercard or Maestrocard and if these cards are mostly accepted by hotels and diving shops over there.

Thanks you!

Best regards from Costa Rica,
Markus
