I will post the same posting for CR. If you wish to save money, look at the pineapple sign
(Edwin t. 507 66141675, info@hostel ride.com) on the hostels front desk in Panama City and the cost is only $9.00 for one person and the last round is scheduled at 3H15 PM. You will arrive in Panama airport at 4h00 PM. No other bus run after 3h15 PM until the present time. You also can ride the public bus for $1.75 or a taxi for $30.00 for one passenger. The driver would charge $35.00 for 2. The airport is…

I wrote and expressed my sincere feelings visiting that country which I did not have a chance to see the way I expected but I should emphasise that Panama is a very safe country to visit. It is true. I rode the bus at any time of the day or evening, walked in the street, rode the metro and I never felt insecure. That was great and I should give credit for that.
Also to all the people in this forum who highly recommended me to purchase a return ticket for Panama, I am grateful since I decided to…

I traveled to Panama with big hope, time and cash in order to spend at least 1 month. I left very disappointed with the lack of tourism infrastructure, tourism offices, roads and inter city bus routes only after 22 days. I could not do much while i was there. I could not reach my destination either long or short without changing at least 2 buses. I could not get information at what approx.time I would get where I wanted to go. The information counter at Albrook bus terminal could not tell me…

Traveling with my family, we have two girls aged 13, 15. We have a choice of traveling over Christmas break or in June for 3 weeks. We are especially interested in wilderness like beaches, snorkeling, jungle, and mountain walks, don't mind some roughing it for brief intervals. Indigenous cultures interest us too. I realize this is vague, but is flying in to David and doing Bocas and Boquete area in June a good idea as the principal destination and time of year weather-wise? Is there another…

I just came back from those islands. I booked a package with the hostel and did not get to see the islands listed in the catalog. Did not remember or thought to take them in written prior to leave. The islands are not what you see in the internet. The sanitary conditions are terrible and you do not get what you pay for. I was around the world and I am not exigent but staying there for one night was more than enough. The canoe which transported was not covered. The canoe did not have a ladder to…

Hi!

I am considering to travel to Panama late october - early november but I am reading in every travel guide that that period has the most rainfall. Is it possible/advisable to visit Panama in that period or would you recommend to look out for another destination? I have never travelled to a country with such extreme seasons (at least that is how the seasons appear to me) before and could use some advice....

This little barber shop is a walk into the past, and I wouldn't miss it. Make it part of your Pedestrian Zone walk, along with Salsipuedes. These classic brothers won't last forever, and this type of authentic historical place is not long for this world.

Located on Calle 16 Este, off of the pedestrian portion of Avenida Central. It's a run-down neighborhood, so keep your wits about you, but it's perfectly safe during the daytime if you don't…

Hello, I am in Panama and wish to find any companion gender 50+ to visit that area not recommended to visit solo.
I will post the same for the other forums.
I won't recommend the visit to Panama Viejo. I did not enjoy it. There is nothing to see than ugly stones and the cathedral is in ruins. If you saw Maya ruins or others, you can easily skip those ones. The day trip recommended in the LP for the island Taboga was not spectacular. The ocean was dirty and I did not swim. I lost my boat return…

Hi, I am right now in Panama and I could tell you the following. My airline Spirit Airlines would sell me a return ticket from P.C. to Fort Lauderdale and refund me the cost upon arrival in Panama airport. I did not know this and I bought a return ticket (with my miles) according to what I was told to do in this travel forum. If your airline could do the same, it would be good. I did not want to take any chance and face departure problems at the airport. I never thought my airline would do this…
