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 ...

... br> We had been told that their coffee comes from the Elida Estate coffee farm in Boquete, which is located in the highlands of Panama.

The manager emphasized that their high quality coffee is produced under unique conditions:

Panama Canal for non Naval Types

A travel blog entry by mdobsonca


Greetings All,

I am currently in Panama City and have been since Saturday, I fly out to New York tomorrow.

Yesterday I went on a partial transit of the Panama Canal, the trip was scheduled to start at 3pm but due to water shortages everything was slowed up so we ended up starting about 90 minutes late. As it turns out this was the best possible outcome as the conditions for photography were perfect, I hope at least some of my ...

Gringo Pricing, Parte Dos--Pack Your Swag Gringos

A travel blog entry by mariposanegra


... the fact that you are a gringo, because no Panamanian would ever ask this question. My advice: at the end of the ride, tell them you much you are going to pay--and make it clear that it isn't a question or a negotiation, you are just going to pay what a Panamanian would.

So the cabbie with a laugh replies "$20 for you two", to which I immediately turned to him and blurted out, "Man, get the f%&! outta here with that. Stop playing, this is a $2 or ...

No lngles

A travel blog entry by jakedavis

So today we learnt some lessons about getting around Panama City.

Lesson 1: The Metro bus system goes everywhere, it costs $0.25 a ride, but if you dont speak spanish, its difficult.

Today we relied upon luck to find our way, with a little help from Google Maps(offline), and a LOT of help from an american Peace Corp worker named Ali. In fact there is a chance we may have not even made it to the Panama Canal today without ...

    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.
