Panama City, Panama (El Cangrejo)

(MID-2018, 5 WEEKS)

 

  • It’s a big city, but at the same time, it can be traveled within fairly quickly because it’s not spread out. The underground metro is efficient.
  • The cars don’t have front license plates, making it difficult to identify your Uber
  • Tons of people from both Venezuela and Colombia
  • Lots of fake boobs
  • San Francisco neighborhood is the best, next to parque Omar with lots of restaurants, bars, gyms, grocery stores, etc. all within walking distance of about 20 minutes. Other best neighborhoods are Marbella, Bella Vista, El Cangrejo.
  • The street vendors fry their food (instead of grilling like many other countries)
  • Many casinos (Trump Tower is the largest and nicest)
  • They use USD
  • Prostitution is legalized
  • No military

I also visited the San Blas islands which was a let down, they're dirty, the locals are lazy and unfriendly, the islands aren't pretty close up, the accommodations are horrendous, and it's boring

 

Known For: Bocas del Turo, San Blas islas, Panamanian hat, Miraflores locks, Geisha coffee beans
