We will be traveling to Panama City by plane on 1/23. We would like to see Panama city for a couple of days and then unsure what to do after that.
We have a friend coming with us that needs to be back in Panama City to depart by plane the early morning of 1/29.
My wife and I would then stay in Panama until the afternoon of 2/2 where we fly out of Panama City.
With these restrictions in mind, what would be do-able and advised?
We don't mind driving a rental car or taking the bus. We don't…
I know CA countries are getting stricter about proof of onward travel and I know that bus tickets are acceptable in most cases (that is what we showed when traveling one way from US to Nicaragua) but I read on one site that Panama doesn't accept bus tickets, only flights. Does anyone know if this is true or has been able to enter with bus tickets? We will be crossing into there through Costa Rica (from Puerto Viejo)We are planning to stay six weeks in between house sits in PV and Cahuita…
We will marry in June 2016 and we're thinking to make our honeymoon in June but we are afraid of the rainsaison that starts in May.
How is the wheater in Panama in June? And is it all over Panama rainy or only in the jungle?
We want to visit San Blas, Panama City, Vulcano Baru and Bocas tel Toro..
Hey everyone! Booking a trip to panama with 2 friends (we're 2 guys, 1 girl, all mid 20s) mid December and hoping to get a good rec for where we can go fully immerse ourselves in the rainforest not too far from the city.
We are young and active, so we're not looking for relaxing by a pool, bird watching, and an overpriced canal cruise - we want to hike, explore the jungle, and see some cool wildlife! Anywhere y'all can recommend us staying for 3 days/ 2 nights not too far from the city where we…
My name is Emma and Im 21 years old.
So in less then 2 weeks I am flying in to Panama City to start my solo journey that is going to last 3 months. I haven't made any plans as to where to go or when to go, just because three months is too long of a time to plan.. I suck at planning.. haha! But the aim is to travel up to Costa rica!
So I would truly appreciate it if you guys would give me some helpful tips on good hostels and things to do on a tight budget as a solo traveller between…
Hi. I'll be in Panama City on Jan 9th leaving on the 24th. Three first nights booked at the Magnolia. Then thinking of going to Boquete for 2 nights (flying better or bus it?), hopefully the Mamallena is available. Then probably 2 nights in Boca del Toros. I'd like to go to a rustic lodge in the mountains maybe do a guided hike and nice walks. I'm not one to sit around the pool or beach. Not sure where else to go as i still need to read my guide book.
Budget is not tight but staying in hostel…
Everything I read everywhere about the Azuero Peninsula is about the east side -- Chitre, Las Tablas, etc.
Anyone been to the west side? I know a bus goes once an hour from Santiago and that there are like 2 VRBOs and one hotel and that's it.
Does the west side suck or is it just one of those undiscovered places?
If you've been, any advice to pass along? My main concern I think is showing up and finding the beaches strewn with trash.
My boyfriend and I are travelling to Panama in January 2016. We are in our mid twenties and have travelled South America and South East Asia previously. Unfortunately we can both can only take just over two weeks holidays from work so I am trying to sort out a rough itinerary now. We are interested in chilling by the beach, snorkelling, hiking etc.
Friday 1st January: Arr 18.55
Sat 2nd January: Explore Panama City
Sunday 3rd January: Organised trip to San Blas (2nights/3days)
I'm thinking of going to Panama right after the holidays for two weeks. But I'm flexible if later is better.
This would be the first time ever travelling solo and I'm a female, 50 yrs old.
Is it a bad time to go as it might still be busy?
I want to stay 2-3 days in Panama City then see the San Blas,
I need to read more to find out what to see. I like hiking, cycling and kayaking so is it easy to book excursion from Panama City? Should I plan and book the whole two weeks or allow for some…
