White water rafting in Panama! My #travelcompanion won't enjoy this as much as the day of fishing, but it looks like a lot of fun!
El Otro Lado on Portobelo Beach: Take the toll road to Colon and turn off at Sabanitas. From there, it takes about 40 minutes to get to the fishing hamlet of Portobello. (The whole trip from Panama City is about 1 hour and 40 minutes). El Otro Lado Resort provides transportation from Panama City. www.elotrolado.com.pa/weben/ http://www.tripadvisor.com/Hotel_Review-g1637879-d1910517-Reviews-El_Otro_Lado-Portobelo_Colon_Province.html
French Monument Panama City
The Amador Causeway in Panama City: A small strip of land going from Amador to a little island, with lots of restaurants and the city duty free shops. On one side of the strip you have a view on the numerous ships waiting to pass the Canal, on the other side is the impressive skyline of Panama City. You can walk or rent bikes here. Also from here the boats depart to the smaller islands. We enjoyed it.
"There won’t always be bars like La Casona, down a dark, dead-end street in a derelict old building, where you can drop in for a mojito with a hundred other people if you’re still up at 4 a.m." Casco Antiguo, Calle 5ta, atras del Museo del Canal, Panama City, Panama
The Mercado de Artesanias--the perfect place to find handmade arts and crafts in Panama City. #travelcompanion
