I was surprised not to see people playing (beach) volleyball on the beaches around Panama City
Maybe somebody knows the good spots ? Please let us know ! We are very enthusiastic and would like to play as often as possible, or at least on week-ends
Equipment: We do a have volleyball and a net
I signed up for white Water Rafting in Feb when i booked it Javier said water level is low and will be using inflatable Kayaks. The water level was so low we had to work hard and paddle more because the water level was so shallow we got grounded on top of rocks and boulders most of the time and had to walk around area because too many large boulders and not enough room to cross.
This is Summer time here in Panama temps in the 80s and humid and not alot of rain.
The Cost was $ 125 for 1 person.
They picked me up at 8 am at my hotel and drove about 40 mins to have breakfast we had to pay ourselves. Then drove another 30 mins unloaded and a 4x4 pickup truck drove to the PUT in for our start. There were 5 of us and 4 guides. 1 guide had a small hardshell kayak. 2 persons per Kayak. We did fall in about 3 or 4 times because the water level is so low exposing the rocks and bolders.
If you go rafting go when water level is high= Less paddle and faster current less chance of falling in since rocks and boulders wont be exposed as much.

RUN THE CAUSEWAY
The place to run here in Panama City is the Amador Causeway. Start either at the Country Inn Hotel at the base of the Puente de las Americas or out on Flamenco Island. The course is four kilometers one way. The great views will help you forget your plodding speed brought on by the torpid heat. We increased the length of the run by a few kilometers, running from our bed and breakfast on Ancon Hill, La Estancia. The 190 stairs beneath the Canal Administration Building are a great way to really finish yourself off!
Equipment: Running shoes, glasses for the sun, a hat and clothes you can wash afterwards!
