Panama Part II

Took a day to myself to walk around Old Town in a light rain to capture some of the sights, sounds and smells of this old classic.

Panama Old & New

We stayed in the old town of Panama City, which is a mix between old run-down buildings, and newly renovated buildings in the same style of the old. It seems as if it’s been a slow process, but over time this place is going to be a MAJOR tourist destination. Our apartment rental was literally a stones throw from the presidents palace (no we didn’t throw a stone at his house) so safety and security wasn’t an issue at all. You can tell from the skyline of the new downtown area that there are some major bucks coming in thanks to the canal that was recently turned over to the Panamanians. Mark my words, this place is about to explode! Let’s hope it doesn’t lose it’s charm in the process.

Zippity Do Dah

Today we took a water taxi over to Red Frog Beach for some zip-lining through the canopies. After we suited up in our gear we played a little X-treme Billiards while we awaited the rest of the group. Video after the jump.

Border Crossing Into Bocas

Typically we will fly across country borders, but in these small Central America countries you can just walk. So we strolled across a narrow bridge, narrowly getting hit by a semi that shared the bridge with us. Once across the border we boarded a boat for a bumpy ride to Bocas del Toro, a series of Panamanian islands that are all accessible by water taxis that traverse the aquamarine waters — pretty cool!
