Panama City & Lake Gatun

A travel blog entry by shawnbuckle


We were flying in from Santa Marta, with a stopover in Bogota. During our connection, I was reading some Panama City reviews on the Trip Advisor app. I noticed a top rating for a Lake Gatun tour by a guy named Carl. Quickly, I sent an email and he said he'd picked us up the next day.

We opted for the day trip since it was a last minute …

The incredible canal

A travel blog entry by joandmike


For me Panama is all about the Canal - it is the most extraordinary homage to engineering. We visited the Miraflores locks to watch the great ships transit through - the process takes about an hour and a half. We may have taken one too many photos, but it was incredible to watch. We highly recommend it - particularly if you can wait a couple of …

Coffee stops bleeding...

A travel blog entry by flyindandelion


... speakers are the ones I have to really push to use it. Especially Alan and Fergus. LOL I just keep telling them I don't understand English until they speak only Spanish! :) Alysa and Eduardo talk all the time to eachother in Spanish which is fun to hear.

Each of the lock doors weigh over 700 tons which is about the same as 300 elephants! When they built the canal it took over 60 million pounds to remove 153 million cubic meters of rock and earth and that ...

    For about $150USD, you got a big, one-bedroom, two-bathroom suite with full amenities. The desk guy was a dud, but had little impact on our stay. I'd go here versus the Finistirre Suites 100 times out of a 100.

    Fantastic view from our suite on 38th floor. Lovely suites. Good breakfast. Nice pool area. Staff were very nice apart from the room service staff who seemed less interested. Other guests turned up their noses at our backpacks and travel attire, however the reception staff were charming.

    Thoroughly recommend this hotel, it was in the financial district and everything was very accessible by cheap taxi rides.
