Panama City, Panama

by mccurrmj

Hello all,

My name is Matthias McCurren. I am 21 years old, and am a Junior in College. I have the opportunity to do an internship in Panama City, Panama this summer-specifically-Amador Causeway. I just wanted a bit of inside information on the area, as I've never traveled there before. I'd really appreciate it if anyone could help me out as to if...

The area is safe? Which areas should one stray away from?
Expensive? Approximately how much is an average apartment's rent per month?
Fun? How's the night life?

Any extra information that you think I should know would also be much appreciated.

Thanks,
Matthias

If you have time, look at my web pages, all your questions will be answered. Apts rent for as little as $300 a month, but they are not in very good neighborhoods. If you want a decent apt in a decent area, you should expect to pay about $500 a month, at least. If you go online at LaPrensa.com there may be some shared apts available in their classified section. How is your Spanish? If you don't speak Spanish well, you may have some problems with negociating for a lease, etc. Cabs are plentiful and not too expensive, but they try to take advantage of foreigners, so be careful! Buses are only 25 cents but usually crowded and if you don't know the city well, you could get lost. The drivers don't usually speak English and they usually don't know where anything is off their route, as they usually live in outlying areas and don't know the city that well. Amador Causeway is very upscale. It is more expensive than most of the rest of Panama City. Night life, there is all kinds of it! Stay near Via Espana around the hotel area (Cangrejo) there are all sorts of clubs and casinos there with entertainment. If you want to share an apt, let me know, a friend of my wife may have a room available the time you will be in Panama City. Let me know when you will be there and how much you can afford, I will ask her. Any other questions, let me know.

Yes its safe but avoid the areas Los Poetes, Santana, Avenida Central Chorrillo at night. Rental can be pretty expensive, look for Obbarrio area or Bella Vista (in the area near Veneto Hotel) off Via Espana. Actually for the Causeway you should also look at renting in Howard or Albrook or Los Rios or any of the reverted areas but they may be expensive. Good luck. What will your internship be related to? nightlife is GREAT - Calle Uruguay

Howard and Albrook are VERY expensive and hard to get to the central city as they are in outlying areas, especially Howard, it is on the other side of the canal! That is in the country to Panamanians! Bella Vista may not be that bad, but most other areas are pretty expensive. San Franscisco and Las Sabanas are not as expensive as some areas, and easy to get around from.

Travel Tips for Panamá City

Kuna Culture

by mikey_e

Panama has several indigenous groups and, like in Guatemala and other Central American nations, these groups preserve their language and culture, in the face of the Spanish language and a globalized culture. In Panamá, the two main groups are the Kuna, who live on the Caribbean coast, and the Emberá, who live in the Darién region and towards the Colombian border. The Kuna are often the most visible indigenous group in the capital, as the women still wear traditional costume (which includes a lot of orange, bangles, and colourful print dresses). They frequently sell their traditional handicrafts in areas that are tourist hotspots, showing the colourful quilts and masks that are characteristic of indigenous cultures of Panamá. The Kuna actually have their own Republic that is associated with Panamá, although this distinction is not generally recognized internationally. Despite the fact that those Kuna who live in the city can still be heard speaking their native language, the characteristics of the culture are gradually being lost in urban centres, as the young look to assimilate into the cosmopolitan culture of the capital.

Monumento a Balboa

by mikey_e

Vasco Núñez de Balboa was responsible for the "discovery" of the Isthmus of Panamá and, as such, he holds a fairly important place in the country's national narrative. While he is probably not particularly popular with the Emberá and Kuna nations, he does rank fairly highly in terms of national heroes, with the former currency named after him, as well as the main Avenue along the Pacific and a large monument along the said Avenue. He was the first European to reach the Pacific's eastern shores and founded numerous settlements in the region of Darién, in the south-east of the country. Although Balboa did not in fact found the City of Panamá, he is important for the founding of the country's first Spanish settlements and for the attraction of the Spaniards to the region's importance in the gold trade. Today, a large monument to him, atop a white globe, dominates the southern end of the Avenida Balboa in the capital.

LENOS CARBON STEAK AND SALAD BAR AMADOR CAUSEWAY

by sfphototraveller about LENOS CARBON PARRILLADA

I ate at the Lenos Carbon Gourmet in the Amador Causeway by the waterway.Its a bit upscale with the prices to match, Its a Steakhouse. I had the Filet Mignon 350 g. My dinner came with 2 hand size round patty of meat wrapped around bacon. Came with rice,fried banana i think small salad for $ 15 dollars. This area is almost like pier 39 or along the Fishermanswharf in San Francisco where I am from and the size and quantity of food i got for $ 15 would be $ 30 in San Francisco.
We sat outside in the open deck area and watch the sunset. There are many other type of places to eat along the Amador area.

Panama Canal crossing

by flavoredtoothpaste

Wow.................thats what comes to mind when i think about Panama Canal transit. Actually, i did the whole thing twice, just because i liked the first time so much. Just a little warning for travelers.............the country sits on the ecuator so its incredibly humid all the time. Other than that, it was a ton of fun. The city is booming with skyscrapers growing like crazy. They just build a brand new shopping plaza downtown with HardRock cafe included. Awesome vacation.

Museo del Canal Interoceanico

by elsadran


The Interoceanic Canal Museum is a non-profit institution that collects, conserves and researches testimonies of Panama's history and the Canal for educational purposes. It is housed in a beautifully restored building on Plaza de Independencia (or Plaza Cathedral) which was the former Gran Hotel and then served as the headquarters for both French and Americans when they were building the canal. The evolution of the country is narrated through displays and the difficult task of the canal building comes alive through historical documents, films, photos and man-sized figures of workers in action.
Entrance is 2$. Open from 9:00am-5:00pm. Closed on Mondays.
