Hey guys! I'm taking a bus from Bocas Del Toro (Almirante) to David (3 hr bus, 2 hr stop in David) then to Panama City. I have 3 days to do it before flying out of Panama Pacifico Airport and I do NOT want to take any night buses and miss seeing the country. My question is: 1. What is most worth seeing between David and Panama City? Any towns not too far off the main Hwy worth stopping for an extra night? 2. Has anyone done this?/ is it easy to take 4 hour bus rides along Hwy 1 rather than…
My friends are flying from Costa Rica to Toronto, but on the way back to Toronto they have a layover in Panama that lasts for 23 hours. They really want to spend the day in Panama City, but their bags and everything will be checked in. Is it possible for them to leave the airport and return in time for their next flight?
Does anybody have any experience living in San Jacinto/Coronado areas? Looking really hard at retiring in Panama next year. Any info would be great, the good the bad and the ugly!
Hello, I am arriving in at 0600 on Sunday October 16th into Colon on a positioning cruise ship. We disembark in Colon and the return trip is up to us to organise.
I would like to travel the length of the Panama Canal and embark in Colon. Is this possible ?

I did read that there as a ferry but it would seem that it only runs on Fridays and Saturdays.
Your suggestions would be most welcome.
I am reading right now the LP travel guide for the above country. For some bus rides, the guide recommends to keep our bags at our feet in not on top of the overhead bin. I have a question. Can I surrender my backpack to the bus company to store it just prior to board the bus as I did in Colombia and Ecuador? Is it safe? Thanks.
I am considering 2-3 weeks learning Spanish in Panama this winter. Any recommendations for a school whose classes aren't exclusively for young people? I am fine with learning alongside students of all ages, but would like to know there are some closer in age to me for excursions. Thanks!
I am on the verge of booking my honeymoon. We are flying Ottawa to Panama City.
We need to stay overnight in a Panama City hotel before flying to Bocas Del Toras for 5 nights.
On the way back home we will have another overnight in a Panama City hotel.
I suspect we may have only the evening or part of the day in the city.
I want to make the most of it.
I'm thinking Romance. Perhaps dancing. Perhaps a sunset dinner cruise.
Anyone know of any hidden gems?
I am also open to any tips about…
