    Leños & Carbón: Some Good Reviews

    by grandmaR Updated Oct 18, 2015

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We didn't eat here - we just saw the restaurant while we were waiting to be picked up for a tour. The tour guide never showed up and they did not refund our deposit either. I was so distressed by this that I had no appetite and just went back to the ship.

    Bus, Car or Boat

    Because this is basically a marina which is some miles from the city, you have to figure out how to travel. First you have to come in by boat. Then there are taxis. But most of the cruise ship passengers are funneled into buses for tours.

    The taxi drivers have a set rate to go into the city but you should be sure to settle on a price before you get into the taxi.

    I had a tour arranged from here with Panama Private Tours, but they never showed up and never refunded my deposit money either

    La Playita Marina

    There are at least two marinas in this area, and I do not know which one we visited. One of them is La Playita de Amador which has capacity for up to 40 yachts, a marine gas station and an anchorage and is also a resort. The other one is the Flamenco Marina which I can find little about.

    Anchorage

    The anchorage for Panama City is a very interesting and busy place. Many ships are here at anchor, either waiting to be loaded or unloaded or waiting their turn to transit the canal. The cruise ship presence is relatively minor. Most of the ships here are cargo ships of one kind or another.

    Cargo ships at anchor Large sailboat Probably a tuna fishing boat with stern net boat More ships anchorec Large cargo ship - Panamax?

    Bridges and Harbor Markers

    Favorite thing: Fuerte Amador is a place where cruise ships anchor and transfer passengers to shore by the ship's tenders. It is at the Pacific entrance of the Panama Canal. It is 20 miles from Panama City center. There is a red and white tower on the end of the jetty which looks like a lighthouse. You can also see the International Bridge from here.
