... that they like to help but it's too much especially when we've travelled all day. After looking at a few places we settled on Hotel Seahorse. We met a really nice Panamanian lady Yasmita. She said $30 a night for a private room, AC and private bathroom. Greg bartered and said 2 nights at $25 each night. She said okay! We got in showered and walked around town. Our first stop was Buena Vista Restaurant which was right across the street from our hotel. I ...

We had been warned about how cold the air conditioning on the bus was so we put on plenty of layers. At 7pm we were on our way. We nodded in and out of consciousness for the journey and at 4am we arrived in Panama.
