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.

And so we were sad to hop off 'La Gitanita' and say goodbye to our captain, Dingo. He is one character we won't forget in a hurry! We all boarded a jeep headed for Panama City and so South America is done and dusted and now begins the second phase of our travels: The adventures through Central America! After a few hours, we arrive to our hostel pretty tired and super excited to have a real shower after 5 days of ocean showering! We said goodbye to our mates with plans to ...
... via boat to Isla Coiba - one of the best preserved rain forests in Panama - for two days and one night. Undeveloped and still a bit wild, Coiba's only accommodations are dormitory beds at the ranger's station. This should be interesting.
David said he would pick us up at 7am. True to form, we were out on the side of the road around 6:45. Dawn was peeking over the horizon and the air was still a lovely cool. Seven am, no David. It's only 3 minutes from town to where we ...
... I hope you're all well and that you don't envy my glorious backpackers lifestyle too much, haha, but if you do, get off your butt and go plan your own adventure! That is all! Expect a much shorter update next month! Dan. Ok, not quite all: I've created this Tripline page (http://www.tripline.net/1ftninja) which shows every single place I've slept in over the past eleven and some months, and will update it every time I move, so you'll be able to see where exactly I've been. Go check it ...
... us back to the resort. panama city is actually a pretty cool looking city. evident divide between the higher end and lower end neighbourhoods, and lots of windy, congested streets. they're in the process of building an underground metro though. the skyline and parks are great. and there are malls a-plenty. it's not surprising that many americans and canadians are actually retiring down this way; central american charm with many north american ...
... not for long. We also had a great group with us on our yacht and our Captain and his wife were accommodating and friendly. The islands were paradise on Earth. And we had a ball!
We set sail for the Panamanian mainland on Thursday evening. We watched the sun set and kept an eye out for dolphins, before heading to bed early (the water was pretty rough). We woke up in Portobelo Harbour in Panama and after breakfast headed on shore to process ...
