Highs & Lows
I Loved the attitude of the people with the visitors, everybody is very friendly even when you're crossing the street!
Metro is nice but very limited of stations, it should have more.
We woke up in Capurgana early in the morning to start the trip since we needed to find a boat to cross from Puerto Obaldia which is the city where you have to stamp your passport to Carti so you can take the road to Panama City, we visited the Guna Yala islands, Panama City and Bocas del Toro which is a place very close to the border with Costa Rica
Q & A
What would you have changed?
The way I traveled from Colombia to Panama, It was very dangerous, and flying with a low-cost airline would have saved me a lot of money
Anything go wrong during the trip?
Everything that has to do with boats and islands!
How was the food?
there are several bars and restaurants in "Casco Viejo", I don't have any specific recommendation because I ate pizza and cooked at the hostel
What tips would you give a friend?
use low-cost airlines, they will save you a lot of money and try to carry as little luggage as possible
use a small backpack to carry all your stuff, and if you have a musical instrument it would be way better because you can make money while you're traveling
Metro in Panama is not that useful since the stations don't go to all the city but public buses are great and very comfortable
use www.booking.com to make your reservations, in my opinion, travel agencies are not necessary but if it's your first trip you can use them to get used to traveling.
