Accommodation in Panama City

by Spacemanspiff

I'm heading down to Panama for two weeks in september. Can anyone recommend a nice reasonably priced place in the Casco Viejo part of Panama City?

Re: Accommodation in Panama City

I don't know any affordable lodging in Casco Viejo but there's a nice Bed & breakfast in Balboa which is just a 5 minute taxi drive from Casco Viejo. The location is great. Safe, quiet and easy to get around. The Amador Causeway is within walking distance. Check them out for yourself at www.thebalboainn.com

Travel Tips for Panamá City

Polleras

by bilgeez

The local native costume for women is the pollera. The pollera is worn at any festive occasion and all festive occasions here have a contest for a queen, who invariably wears a pollera for the occasion. Polleras are inticrately beaded and embroidered with floral designs on them. They can cost thousands of dollars. The traditional jewelry and pearl head pieces that go with them are also very costly and are handed down from generation to generation in a family. Some people rent out their polleras, jewelry and head pieces to other women to wear in paegants and fiestas, because there are so many fiestas and paegents throughout the year, they can make a good living at renting these items out. If someone who holds these items dies without a will, you can be sure the surviving family members will fight over who gets them!

Buses

by ivan_valeron

To go by bus is cheap with the public transportation. If you need to get faster (almost half of the time) to your destination, you can take the "expresos", big, nice, comfortable buses. The only thing is that they are a bit more expensive

a little corner of France

by call_me_rhia about Petit Paris

We found Petit Paris just by change, wandering up the via de Argentina looking for a place to have lunch... we knew we wanted something light and healthy but delicious. We also wanted to be able to eat outside. When we saw Petit Paris, tiny and cosy and with a patio, we knew it would suit us well. The only sad part is that it would close at 8 PM, so no chace to have our dinner there. We had a lovely salad and a huge baguette.... a real baguette. We later fund out from the french owner that he had brought a baker from france to Panama for his little cafe. After the salad it was time for something decandent... and tere were plenty of desserts, pastries and homemade chocolates to choose from. As you can see from the photo we had quite a few of them, but my favourite remains that volcano negro, different sorts of nuts covered in delicious dark chocolate. Heavenly.

The Canal Museum

by mikey_e

In contrast to the actual Canal, the Canal Museum at the Miraflores Locks is actually quite informative and a great opportunity to learn about the Canal, its history, its effect on the natural environment and plans for the future, including for a third lane. The Museum starts off with the plans for the Canal and a description of its construction, which highlights the number of people who died in the completion of the massive engineering task. The second floor, with its detailed description of the flora and fauna of the Canal Zone, is really quite interesting, especially since it has a small aquarium eco-system that displays the diversity of the region. The third floor has an exposé of the technology of the Canal and all of the advancements that were required to make the transit path safe and efficient. The final, fourth-floor balcony is a description of the plans for the expansion of the Canal and the manner in which it will be kept competitive in the face of alternative transit routes. In all, this is a great way to learn about the Canal.

Las Bóvedas

by mikey_e

Las Bóvedas are a series of sea walls that protect the Plaza de Francia and the tip of the Casco Antiguo from the Pacific Ocean. They are primarily from the 18th Century, and a fairly large, as I imagine that storms and earthquakes can cause fairly high waves to beat the shore along the Casco Antiguo. Today, the Bóvedas provide a sort of elevated walkway from which you get great view of the extension of the city towards the Causeway and out to the Pacific Ocean. They’re an ideal place to get some of the best pictures of your stay in the city.
