New Bed and Breakfast in Santa Clara, Panama

We just finish our trip in Panama, and we want to share with you one of our prefered place. This is an amazing little Bed and Breakfast, near the beach of Santa Clara in the Pacific coast.

Villa Botero By Casa Mojito is the name of the place. The owners are french and we really loved the breakfast with fresh bread, croissants, muffins... All home made !
The rooms are large, with all comfort.

1 week in November... Panama, Nica, or El Salvador?

Traveling for a week in mid November... looking to stay more or less in one place. Hoping to minimize time wasted on travel although don't mind a bit of a trek to and from airport each way. Only requirements are a great beach and some hammocks. Have travelled lots but never in central america - really don't need anywhere fancy, just relatively clean with a good vibe (although hopefully not full on spring break-esque party scene). Would be ideal to surf a bit but not a must. Torn between Panama,…

Flight Fare from New York to Panama City

Hi Everybody,

I'm planning a trip to Panama in the middle of February, and can't find any flight from New York to Panama City for less than $550-600. Is it a normal price for this leg in this period of the year? I haven't been in CA for a while and was wondering if I'm getting ripped off by booking now at this price.

Thank you so much for your a dive. Highly appreciated.

1-week itinerary in November

Hey guys!

I'm planning to go to Panama in the second week of November with a friend and we're still having some trouble deciding which places to insert on our route along the country since we don't know anyone who has been there already.

Besides:
