11 days in PanamaHey guys, its vacation time again... i did costa rica last year and doing panama this year.
We are planning on staying in panama city and partying for a few days, we arrive on a thursday and stay in panama city until sunday after noon or monday morning.
We plan on renting a car, does anyone know if they demand a crazy 1500$ deposit like they did in costa rica?
any ideas for places in PC, we plan on trying out the ventos for one night, but it seems sort of expensive so we are looking for a hotel in a good area for fun that is a little less expensive.
then, we plan to drive to bocas del toro, bocas town... is this a good place to have some night life, but also take some good tours?
is there anything out of the blue for saftey concerns or is it more or less like Costa Rica.

2Driving is better than Costa Rica, the roads and drivers. As far as Bocas goes there is plenty of night life in Bocas town. When are you coming? All the tours basically leave from Bocas town so you can base everything from there. On the way you can stop at Lost And Found hostel in the mountains between David and Bocas, look it up. Not sure about mountain biking. Im sure there are plenty of trails but renting a quality bike may be a problem. In Panama city look at hotel Magnolia in the Casco Viejo.

5That is between Carnival and Semana Santas so it should been fairly emptyin Bocas. You may look up festivals in Panama, there may be something interesting on the ride to Bocas.
