TravelPod Member ReviewsHoliday Inn at the Panama Canal Panama City
The main reason for choosing this hotel is, obviously, the proximity to the Panama Canal Visitor Center. The hotel was clean and comfortable, but had little in the way of amenities. We booked a canal view room and requested either Floor 5 or 6, but they didn't have any available at that time. Since we'd flown overnight and it was still somewhat early, we accepted a room on Floor 4. We wished we'd have waited until a higher room was available.
Overall, an acceptable place to stay for one or two nights.

Once again the afternoon heat beat down on us as we attempted to climb up ...
I have to admit, the Panama Canal is pretty magnificent. Before I'd left the UK id done my research into it anyway but the rich history of it’s creation really accentuates the beauty of such a massive man made achievement. You venture through these tropical forests in almost silence, and it’s hard to imagine that this didn’t always exist. The only gripe I have with going through the canal was the amount of photos taken, people never really stopped to take it in, ...
... provided that the ownership would return to Panama by 1999, which it did.
With a population of 3.5 million, Panama enjoys the second largest economy in Central America, and it shows. Divided by the old town and the new city, the skyline of high rise towers in the new area resembles something similar to Dubai.
We were fortunate to be staying in our friends apartment in the Hard Rock Hotel which was ...
... finished our errands and got back to hostel I just had time for a re-dye of the roots and to grab some food before we headed to get our night bus. We had the very back-row seats between me, Ali and a random girl and started off being able to lie and sleep pretty well but then it was so hot and bumpy that we got to Bocas in a very tired ...
