    Panamá City Warnings and Dangers

    As someone who has family ties to Panama, I am happy to see how the country is modernizing. With the recently added Metro train and their previous conversion to an organized inner city bus system, significant progress has been made. Now with the addition to the newly added Cinta Costera, another beautiful facet is evident. Although I would like to...

    Isla Taboga Things to Do

    Not really the proper category on "things to do, " especially since you can see it right from the boat dock and there isn't anything "to do" there really. The unassuming church was founded in 1550 and is the second oldest church in the western hemisphere (as mentioned above). Inside (which is actually outside) is an alter and some artwork.

    Chicheme is a tasty concoction made primarily from corn off the cob. The corn is boiled down, chilled and mixed with milk and sweeteners. There are derivations of the recipe from one Latin American country to the next. Just put the word chicheme in any search engine and you'll find recipes for it. The version made here uses milk and sugar. It's...

    La Chorrera Off The Beaten Path

    I happened to be there when it took place, I heard from everybody it was great so I decided to go... I took a bus, really crowded, 45 minute trip. Not that worth if you're not acquainted with this kind of events. It was similar to "Ferias" in Mexico but with a lot of dirt. A nice thing was that I found a rodeo event which was fun.

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: I love to take photos of lighthouses, and the Panama Canal is a particularly rich place for lighthouses. When I saw this little building set into the side of the hill, I took some pictures but I wasn't really sure whether it was a lighthouse or not because usually lighthouses are at the top of hills and not in the middle. But it is a lighthouse, built in the 1920s and it is an active lighthouse at that.

    It has alternating white and red lights, osculating every 5 seconds. The lantern is mounted directly on the face of a steep bluff. It is on an island about 5 mi southeast of the Canal entrance. Because of that my photos were taken early in the morning when there wasn't much light. The island, site of a popular restaurant and marina, is connected to the mainland by the Amador Causeway, but we don't know if there is any public access to the signal station area.

  • Boat Tour

    Isla Contadora Things to Do

    Contadora's reefs boast a nice array of stony corals, and in that regard the reefs most closely resemble the related corals of distant South Pacific islands. The diversity is less, likely due to the effects of the cooler currents mid-winter, but the fish are prolific compared to similar sized reefs in the Caribbean.The main boat or scuba tours are...

    You cannot come to Panama and not visit the Canal. If you're in the Pacific side of the Isthmus, you should go to Miraflores Locks (20 minutes from downtown) where you'll find the recently inaugurated Vistors' Center. In that same building they've opened a restaurant which is open from 11:00 am through 11:00 pm. Watch the ships transit through the...

    Old Panama Favorites

    The ruins of the old capital, Panamá viejo are located just 6,5 kms northeast of Panama city. Although the ruins might give a slight idea of its former glory, you'll have to have a big fantasy! But I've to say that the new museum (between the site and the capital) gives a much better and clearer view.
