Visit to Panama
Panama City is only as dangerous as most of the latin american capitals, it is colon that you have to avoid on the other side of the country. you should have no problem seeing the canal and the old part of panama. if you are coming in from south america, you have to fly into panama, as there is no land connection available from south america into panama. on the atlantic side are some sand islands where the ferociously independent Kuna indians live (san Blas).. you will have to fly there as well, no road connections (not easy anyway). Avoid Colon..
