Panama in 7 nights

by nyceagle1633

Here is my plan. Arrive 1:30PM June 6 Saturday and go back 3PM June 13 Saturday. Arrive in PC. Stay 2 nights. Fly ($86RT) to Yandup Island 2 nights - Fly ($70RT) to Contadora ("IC") 3 nights (hope to stay at Perlareal). From Yandup to IC is doable because flight arrives in PC 7:55AM and leave to IC at 10AM. The flight arrives back to PC 11:15 to connect for 3 PM return flight..nice.

I need one key thing. A nice hotel close to everything around 100 USD. I'd like to be close to Casco Viejo and Amador Causeway...short walks or taxi rides ..and I'd like to see the canal, briefly. Please advise, help help

I stayed in PC in early March at the Marbella Hotel. It's in the El Cangrejo neighborhood, near restaurants, casinos, shops, grocery store. Only $55 a night. It's a good tourist-class hotel. Right next door is the Coral Suites Apart-hotel that is over $100.
If you want to stay near Amador, there is the Country Inn and Suites but it's expensive. If you stay in the El Cangrejo area, you can easily get a taxi anywhere and it's very safe to walk around even at night.

Travel Tips for Panamá City

The Panamanian busses

by a005116

The most busses in Panama look like this one on the picture. With many colors, exagerated lights for in the nights and mostly also loud dance music inside. The driver (or better the boss of the driver) just wants you to take his bus and not another, so it should just be the most atractive.

Ministerio de Relaciones Exteriores

by mikey_e

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs is not a tourist attraction, but as an employee of the Ministry here in Canada, I felt the need to at least list my counterparts as one of the attractions of the Casco Antiguo. The architecture of the building is fairly interesting, as it's a Baroque building with accents of white and grey against the main yellow walls.

just another grill restaurant

by call_me_rhia about Parillada Jimmy

Parillada Jimmy, just another restuarnat serrving grilled meats and fish... large and with a long open porch.. guidebooks say it has a farmhouse feel, which is not really true. However it looked like a nice restaurant and it was packed with locals. T We had a grilled octopus (really hard) and a grilled churrasco... which was quite indifferent... It looked more like a very thin steak and it had a lot of fat. Not much like a real churrasco. Disapointng.

Causeway Running Madness

by alza

If you go to the end of the Causeway, at the Yacht Club, make sure it's after 10 a.m. Everything there is closed until then. I'll write about this god-awful place later. Well, I'm sure it's okay as a place to dock your big boat.

Good view on Panama City.

Plaza de Santa Ana

by mikey_e

Parque de Santa Ana is a nice small park in a not-so-tourist part of the Casco Antiguo. In fact, this is fairly far from the tourist part of the old city, which allows you to experience a bit more of Panamanian life than you would if you just hang around the Casco Antiguo. When I visited, there was a folk festival, with plenty of children in traditional dress and lots of music and dancing. The gazebo in the centre is a National Landmark, as is the Church just behind the park – that should give you an idea of the veracity of life in this area. There’s not much to do, I imagine, when there aren’t any shows to be seen in the park, but it’s still a cute piece of greenery in an otherwise concrete city.
