Can anyone recommend how to find a guide to take 4 people on a hike in the rainforest near Panama City or Colón? I'm travelling from the US, and want to organize this before I head to Panama in a couple of weeks. I'm hoping to take the train from Panama City to Colón, and then go for a hike from there. Any recommendations are really appreciated!
I'll be traveling through Panama in September, and am wondering if there are options for public transportation between the different cities usually visited by tourists. I've seen mention of buses but haven't been able to find any specific info online.
Planning to visit Boquete and really looking forward to it, from what I've read sounds like a really cool place
Wondering how are food and activity prices in Boquete (activities i.e. white water rafting and ziplining - and how do these compare to Costa Rica and Nicaragua)? Plus how easy is it to get to the hiking trails and national parks
Hey all, am planning to visit Bocas del Toro in September for a couple days part of a trip to the wider region
Am staying in Bocas town and was wondering what people thought was best value/most interesting things to do in the islands. I'm aware roughly of the different attractions - the bat cave, the smithsonian station and the various beaches but just wanted to get some opinions.
In addition, is Bocas del Toro quite expensive? I noticed hostels were a bit pricey relatively, just wondering…
I need to rent a car for a couple of weeks in May to travel around the country. How are the roads? Is an SUV necessary? Also, does anyone have a recommendation for a good rental company? Thanks!
My husband and I want to visit Panama. I have a serious and very painful neurological condition, atypical facial pain; thus far, no medications that my neurologist has prescribed have helped. The only thing that does is medical marijuana, which is legal in the (US) state in which I live. I use tincture oil and a vaporizer pen when I am in pain. I understand that Panama has very strict drug laws. Will I be able to bring my medical marijuana with me into Panama? If I can't, I won't be able to…
Hello everyone, I want to ship some cooking utensils that weigh about 10 Lbs from the USA to Panama. I was wondering if you guys knew about a good parcel forwarding website. What do you guys think?
Open a new hostel located in the Gulf de Chiriqui Marine Park. If you are in the Boca Chica, Chiriqui you might want to escape to Isla Parada. The lodge has the peace and tranquility of being surrounded by primary forest and the marine park in the front yard. There is miles of hiking trails on the property that has 220 hectares of land. In the front there is a 1/4 mile long beach and in the back is a nice protected cove with a mangrove estuary. If you are looking for something new and away…
we (couple, one speaks fluent spanish) are looking for a local guide to show us around in the Darien for a few days (last week of April 2018). We are thinking of going to Yaviza/El Real and just "find" one there...but it would obviously be much better to have a contact beforehand.

Can anyone help please?
