I'm arriving into Panama City (PTY) next week at 1.15am. Normally I would just grab a cab at the airport, but given the time of the flight I am considering a pick up from my hostel in Casco Viejo. They're charging $35 - does that seem reasonable? or should I just go with a taxi from the airport?
I was just wondering if anyone had any recent information about the best way to book a flight with Air Panama? I saw earlier posts that mentioned problems with the website and stolen credit card information (and I'd obviously like to avoid the latter!) I'm not looking to fly for another month yet, but would like to have it booked before I cross the border from Costa Rica, based on the possible problems with proof of leaving the country discussed in earlier posts.
On a different note - my…
Hey there, i've seen it's a general topic but still didn't find the right info.
I'm flying into Panama, flying out of Guatemala with different airlines, within 2 months.
I'm going to travel Nicaragua, Salvador and Guatemala, so my idea is more or less to travel Panama to Managua directly (or with some stop in CR). I know some people will think skipping CR is crazy, let's discuss it in another post, I have my reasons ;)
anyway, a first idea would be to buy some refundable ticket out of panama…
Looking to find any gender companion to travel to Panama and Costa Rica early September 2016 for 2 months. I am senior, world traveler and multilingual. I enjoy visiting small towns, markets, light hiking, snorkeling, riding local transportation and cooking my own food when possible. I usually stay in hostels and backpackers in order to be around people and do things together. I travel my miles and will be using Spirit Airlines miles for that trip. For the time being, I am reading the LP travel…
I've booked 4 days in Panama before meeting friends in Costa Rica for a longer trip through the region.
Ultimately- I need to get to San Jose. Originally, I was just going to fly to San Jose, but now I'm thinking of maybe spending one night in Bocas del Toro and continuing from there to Costa Rica.
Basically - I would love opinions of whether one night (and one full day) in Bocas is just silly, given the potential for flight delays and rains in June. Or whether I'll get enough of a…
For all you Mamalla hostel fans out there, I just discovered a new one in Bocas Del Toro. I don't see a website yet but I saw pictures of the hotel and it looks pretty nice and right over the water.
I'm trying to figure out how to travel from Panama City to San Isidro de General or San Gerardo de Rivas. I looked up the routes on Ticabus and they go past San Isidro to San Jose. I'd rather not have to back track so I'm wondering what my other options are or if there is a way to stop in San Isidro before reaching San Jose. I'm having a hard time finding specifics online so any information would really help. Thank you for any info you can provide, it is very appreciated!! :)
I'm looking to travel between Panama City and San Jose, Costa Rica. There is a very cheap flight available on Air Panama - I'm just slightly skeptical of booking through their website (as there are some old posts on scams etc). Does anyone have any recent experience with the airline?
