4) There are no street signs here (I am not exaggerating here; corner signs don't exist). Or numeric addresses (as in 465 Bird Street; here you just say it is on this street, next to the bank and the florist--that's your address). It is always an adventure to try to get anywhere new. My Spanish school owner said that when he moved here, he tried to find out the name of his street where he lived. No one who lived on the street could agree what ...

At each end of the canal birds gather. Why? When the fresh water from the locks meets the salt water of the 2 oceans, the fresh are stunned momentarily. It is ...
... Rather than fatiguing myself, I’m learning to structure a more reasonable schedule, with very few service days extending beyond six consecutive hours. This allows me time to recover from the heat, eat healthier and pursue things that I should’ve been concentrating on a long time ago: Spanish and exercise. Sister Morgan has volunteered to tutor me in Spanish so we meet several times a week for a few hours at a time. I have also hired a personal trainer at a gym and we ...

By the time we disembarked, we had been on the plane for an additional 6 hours on top of the original 7.5 hour flight, for a total of 13.5 hours.
This delay blew all our connections. Though the Tocumen airport was shut down while we were ...

The hotel was back to western style and facilities - but arriving on a Saturday we missed the opportunity to sail through the Panama locks, only allowed on Saturday, and found the tour desk was closed till Monday, as Panama follows the catholic and South American style of virtual shut down on Sunday.

TravelPod Member ReviewsEl Oasis Hotel & Restaurant Boquete
Though beyond my usual price range, El Oasis was well worth it. All staff members were very attentive and kind, The owner was the most helpful, definitely wanting to be sure my stay here was excellent. Benefits to staying here comfortable and clean rooms, wifi, access to laundry facilities (50 cents to wash or dry), and breakfast is included. Breakfast was very nice. You are given a menu with several meal choices including omelette, scrambled eggs, and french toast. Juice, coffee/tea/hot chocolate, and a fresh fruit plate come with every meal, eaten in a very nice garden patio. Computers and phones (with phone card) available for use. Great place!
