Auf geht's! Raus aus Panama City!

A travel blog entry by weltwanderin

Am Freitag war relativ wenig los, weil es ja dank des Feiertages am Tag davor quasi ein Brückentag war. Ich hatte mich entschieden, mit den Luxus zu gönnen, im Taxi zum Busbahnhof Albrook zu fahren. Der Fahrer war nett und vor allem zeichnete ihn ein zurückhaltender Fahrstil aus. Vielleicht ist er als Fahrer für den Februar geeignet, wenn ich tä …

Detox time

A travel blog entry by jennyroberts


My time in David was a quiet one, which was exactly what I was after. I went there for a detox programme and to use the time to catch up with friends via Skype, upload my vast collection of photos from three months on Raleigh expedition and see what's been going on in the world. After leaving Bocas and my Raleigh companions, I bussed across Panama …

I <3 habaneros

A travel blog entry by m_and_m_time



A seven hour, picturesque, busride away from Panama City is a place called David. It's the second biggest city in Panama (yet completely different) and we thought it would make a good base for us to get out to the more natural areas of this country, such as the highlands, jungles and beaches.
Our hostel came with a green and …

New counrty, humid heat and heavy rain

A travel blog entry by catndeano


Sun 6th May.

After a few toilet and early lunch stops we reached the border around 2pm, went through immigration and got back on the bus to the other side. Once on the Panamanian side, we got back off the bus, paid our dollar for a sticker and then handed over our passports. Then came the question we'd been waiting for, can you show me …

First Night Out

A travel blog entry by wartravels

From Chitre, we hopped on another bus and made our way to David. David is the primary city used to travel from Panama to Costa Rica. The bus ride was by far the most luxurious yet. We rode on a brand new double decker bus fully equipped with tvs. They played some ******** drama movie about airplanes that the other passengers really got in to. As we …

    The gardens, pool and friendly staff make this a great place to relax. Buses to David entre and other destinations, including Frontera and a minute away. If staying for longer, book just one night online though, as thy charge more!

    Cool jungle courtyard

    Very basic private rooms. The jungle courtyard and pool out the back is cool, as is the simple jungle bar and $1 beers. Would stay here again for the outdoors areas but the room and bathrooms were nothing special. The cheap seafood restaurant across the road from the hostel was fantastic, try the whole fish!
