    Traveling While Black

    We visited Panama City, Panama for New Years 2022. Panama is amazing! We stayed at the Westin Playa Bonita, which is off the beaten path, we learned it used to be a American army base. It’s not downtown, but it’s about a $20 Uber ride away and super close to the beach. We booked a few tours that I recommend. 1. The Panama Canal. It just reopened for tourism post CoVid and it was nice to get out on the water. We visited monkey island, walked in the rainforest, got to see all kinds of wildlife and animals and we were treated to holadres which is a Panamanian breakfast food that I recommend. 2. We did a night tour our Casca Viejo, our guide was amazing! He explained the history of the city, showed us the sights and we went to a restaurant in the Amador Area the of the city called Sabrosa Panama, which has great local fare for a reasonable price. 3. We did another tour like a local where we got to check out the neighborhoods of the city, their street art/murals are so beautiful and we also got to observe the influences from the indigenous, the Chinese, he French and the Spanish. Panama is one of the few countries I’ve been that has a sprawling metro area and also nature juxtaposed next to one another.

    I booked a last minute getaway to Panama through Cheap Caribbean. The hotel itself was a bit far from the airport, a 2 hour drive. Cheap Caribbean (https://www.cheapcaribbean.com/) set us up with a cab, the cab driver was nice and gave us a tour of Panama City and showed us the Panama Canal. The resort we stayed at was Riu Playa Blanca, it was beautiful and being a black traveler, I must say Panamanians were super sweet, made you feel like you were at home. The food was delicious! Service was great. It was $800 per person for 4 days all inclusive the atv was $100 and they included horseback riding in the beach. I did a atv tour through the resort and we drove through a small town, everyone was coming out of their house and waving at us. Kids were asking to take pictures with us. The beach had black sand as well it was beautiful! Definitely one of my favorite countries. I will be returning!

    Go to the Hard Rock Cafe hotel clubs, there’s two, I had fun at Bits (floor 62) had the most amazing view of Panama City. Go to Casco Antiguo (Old Panama), the colonial part of the city, rooftop bars are the trend, so many of them, the most famous is Tantalo (dance club). I also liked Casa Casco, there’s a different ambiance at each floor(good dining). Gatto Blanco is also for drinks and dancing.

    When in Panama, visiting Casco Viejo (The Old Town) is a must. There is so much history that fills this little town, as it is quite different from Panama City, although only a few minutes away . Casco Viejo is a great place to simply explore, as it has a number of old colonial buildings, monument, museums and ruins, as well as coffee shops, bars and restaurants. The town is quite small, so it’s easy to get around by foot. I recommend visiting the American Trade Hotel, which is quite popular. While there I enjoyed lunch, which is offered 11:30 am until 4:00 pm. I was also happy to learn that vegetarian and vegan options were available. Casco Viejo is a great place to explore to immerse yourself in the history of Panama, and to get away from the hustle and bustle of Panama City.

    If in Panama city, I highly recommend taking a day trip and evening trip to Casco Viejo. It is a colorful and vibrant part of town with many markets shops, restaurants, bars, and lots of culture. There are many hop on hop off party buses that you can take at night to explore the town for a reasonable price (and get your drink on)! After partying it up there be sure to grab some street food or pio pio—so good!

    Panama City can be described as a modern city that is still very old. You can walk through cobblestones of Casco Viego and feel like you went back in time to many centuries ago. At the same time, not too far away is a skyline that looks very similar to Miami Beach.

    For a well-rounded trip to Panama, it’s best to reserve a few days to visit some of the best beaches the country has to offer.
    By speaking to locals, we realized the best way to enjoy this country is by Island hopping. If you are short on time, here are some of the top things to do in a few days.
    Casco Viejo,Plaza de Francia,Catedral de Nuestra Señora de la Asunción,Avenida Balboa,Amador Causeway,Ancon Hill,Panama Canal.

    For great views of the city, hike 30 min up this paved hill.
    An easy to moderate hike that should take 30 to 45 for the average person and 20 minutes for those in elite shape. It’s an uphill climb and well paved. Finding the entrance was tricky and we almost gave up until a returning hiker pointed out the entrance.

    First take an Uber/taxi to the guard gate of a residencial neighborhood called Quarry Heights. We were dropped off near the ministry buildings at the bottom of the hill far away from the gates. We walked up the hill passing through the neighborhood to get to the gated community.
    Tip# Make sure that your taxi or Uber drops you off in the front of the gates.

    At the gate, stick to your left, there is a path leading to the forest. When you get to a junction and deciding to go left or right. Make a right. Keep walking until you reach a locked fence. Do not despair, it has an opening on the right side that you climb through (It’s okay just do it).

    From the fence, you are looking at a 20-30-minute hike up the paved hill where a very large Panamanian flag awaits in the center.

    At the summit, you can see views of the city and even the Canal from several vantage points. On the way down, there was a vendor selling popsicles which was quite refreshing after the hike up and descent.

    Lastly, Panama is the best country to travel black.

    Panama was a city I recently visited with a large group of friends. We stayed at the W Panama Hotel which had excellent views of the city from the rooftop pool area. We also traveled to the Panama Canal which is an absolute must to see. We had a private tour through a local connection so not sure what the normal process is but it’s well worth visiting to see the large ships that travel through there regularly. The local fish market has tons of great options for fresh fish and the culture there is very vibrant. We all were able to go out at night as there were several night clubs and rooftop bars to enjoy.

    I took my Favorite Son to Panama in March and we had a great time. Panama is such a fun city with so many things to do. We were surprised that it was Panama’s carnival (i forgot to check what was happening in the country beforehand) so we had two experiences in one. Panama has one of the largest carnivals in Central and South America (little known fact) and it was great to experience carnival that takes it to di road. We had some of the best food ever in Panama, make sure to visit Diablicos for authentic Panamanian food , it’s located in Centro Historico (Historic Center). Make sure to visit Causeway De Amador for great food spots. Don’t be fooled by the exterior of some of the buildings, the food is so dope.

    If you’re looking for an all inclusive resort with drinks and food, great views, entertainment, and an all around great experience. The Dreams Playa Bonita in Panama is the place for you. Upon arrival to the resort after a long day, we were welcomed with a glass of champagne. We were shown to our rooms and from there we ordered room service. Ordered almost everything on the menu and feasted! The property is beautiful! The pools and the poolside bar was great. The bartenders were always so happy and matched the vibes of the vacation. There were 4 restaurants on site and even during lunch they had a buffet that changed everyday by the pool and that food was amazing! The gym wasn’t the best if you were looking to workout during your vacation but you’re perfectly fine skipping out on that. They had a lounge as well downstairs with a bar that served wine. They had activities on the property such as archery, paddle boarding, water aerobics, and a few other things that you were able to participate in. You could walk along the beach and if you were feeling adventurous you could walk it all the way down to this other resort and enjoy the views of the water, seashells in the sand and all the little hermit crabs running around all over the place. Another cool thing is that we saw a sloth on the property. There were actually a couple. We saw one hanging from a tree and the other one climbing the tree as well just living as free as can be. Also the breakfast buffet in the morning was great. You were able to make your own mimosas. They had the orange juice and 2 other juices I cannot remember but they went so well with the champagne. The omelette station and the extra meats were always delicious too!

    There was a group of 4 of us and we stayed at an AirBNB just outside of Panama City. Each of us had our own air conditioned room and got to live like locals. There was a TV, a full kitchen for us to utilize, a large pool and patio area. We were able to go to the local grocery store (they have some brands that are in the US but not a variety). If you want to try something different and live like a local, I would say find a nice AirBNB. Be prepared to have to travel to the city and experience traffic if you do.

    Panama remind me of a much larger Miami in the way it looks. Since it is heavily American influenced they use the US dollar so the cost of everything is no different than being in the states. Beautiful beaches and pretty good local food spots. But stray away from any local chain spot and stick with the hole in the walls or the popular one shop spots. So many adventure options from a tour in the rain forest to riding the rivers and seeing the monkeys. Also plenty of beautiful beaches.

    Visited Panama for a group trip and it was a perfect blend of culture, tradition, an history within an industrialized city. I was pleasantly surprised to see large building and skyscrapers in the heart of the city. It’s a great travel destination for Americans since the local currency is the US dollar, the ability to get around using Uber (less than $10 per trip) and large number of English speaking natives. One of the must visits is checking out the Panama Canal and learning about the large influence the united states had on the canal. I would suggest calling ahead to see the schedule of boats passing through the canal, to reduce your downtime waiting to see the canal in action. The Casco Viejo area is the consider the historic district which has beautiful and charming architecture. The panama nightlife also occurs in the Casco Viejo area which is home to several bars, clubs and restaurants. If you get a chance check out club La Tana which had affordable VIP tables and bottle prices. We contacted the club via WhatsApp and were able to select the tables and negotiate our price because we were such a large party. We were able to get 3 tables and entry for 20 people with a minimum spend of $1300 total. If you ever get a chance check out Panama! There are direct flights from IAD to PTY, which make it even easier to get there from the DMV.

    I love experiencing places for the 1st time and to be honest, I didn’t know what to expect from Panama City. I just happened to see a great flight deal and jumped on it!! Panama City was awesome! It’s a city where you can embed yourself with its culture. I wouldn’t consider it a location where you go to party, but like I said, a place where you can embed yourself within its culture and learn a many of things. The only thing that threw me for a loop was that not many there speak English at all, not even a little bit. The hotel staff spoke it, and a local black chef that was born in Panama City but moved and lived in New York for a while before moving back to Panama City. The people of Panama City were so nice and it didn’t matter where we were. Our hotel (AC Hotel by Marriott) was downtown but we ventured out to Casco Viego, Contadora Island, and even the hood of Panama City (every city has it’s hood(s)). We wanted to experience more but we ran out of time. I’d definitely recommend going if you want a quick getaway to indulge yourself within another country and culture without thinking of wanting to party.

    We stayed at the Riande Grenada Hotel that had contemporary styled rooms with dope art work. The lobby had a pool table and game area to hang out. The business center was nicely decorated to match the decor of the entire hotel. The restaurant & pool area was the highlight! We stayed here for one night to experience the city before flying to Jamaica. We will definitely be back, the people are beautiful and the nightlife was GREAT! We partied at the hotel until it was time to go to Le Palace gentlemens club Near the hotel. The hotel is in the financial district and we felt safe. The

    Nice place to visit, lots of historic sights to see, over all the beach was the best thing! San Blas beach was beyond beautiful, you have to take a tour to get there, no resorts are on the island but once you get there you’re gonna love it. Natural clear water, palms trees everywhere, just beautiful! Panama City is very Americanized so it’s not much like other places in Central America where everything is cheap, it’s pretty much dollar for dollar with everything there. But it’s still not too bad, highly recommend it.

    Panama City is a great place to visit. If you want to experience some adventure mixed with some history and party vibes, you’ve found the right place. I recommend staying close to the city so you can experience the nightlife. Make sure to take the village tour as well. There are several tours that can take you to the village. They range from $80-150 per person, but everything is negotiable. I recommend booking in advance as they typically reach their limit early. Please find the link to the village tour below. I stayed at Dreams Playa Bonita and they were able to assist with all of my excusions. Also this resort is only located about 15- 20 minutes from the city. Be careful because some resorts are really far! Nonetheless, the Panamanians are some of the most proud and cultured people I’ve ever met.

    I visited Panama on a mission trip and it was a fun experience. We stayed in Panama City and went out daily visiting different parts of Panama. Not many English speaking locals, so make sure your have a translator app. Everything was very affordable and everyone uses uber here which I love.

    Such a great place to visit. Its like city life, meets jungle, meets the Caribbean. We stayed at the Royal Hotel in the city. The city has beautiful skyscrapers, almost feels like Manhattan! The people were really nice and food delicious and affordable. We got to do a lot of adventure like take a boat ride to money Island and feed monkeys. We took a boat ride through the jungle to visit an Indian tribe and jump in a beautiful waterfall! The beaches are incredible and water is super blue. Would highly recommend this place city to visit for fun and adventure.

    Panama has so much cool history to it! I definitely recommend seeing the following sites while visiting:
    – BioMuseum (near Flamenco Island)
    – Taboga
    – Embera Village (this is a tour we paid $85 dollars for). There’s a waterfall excursion and the villagers gret you with a dance and food. I even got a traditional (henna) tattoo from the natives and then actually tattooed it on my body the following day. This trip was definitely the highlight of our trip thus far.

    Everybody talks about Bocas when visiting Panama. However, San Blas Islands is a great alternative if based in Panama City with limited time. You can fly, but we decided to travel by land with a tour guide referred by a friend. It is a bumpy, two hour drive through the forest in a 4 x 4. We even saw a bear on the road, so this definitely throws some adventure into your day. Once reaching the dock, there are changing rooms available as you wait for your motor boat. There is no food so don’t make my mistake by skipping breakfast. Once on the boat, the fun starts as you’re zipping on the water. You get to pass by multiple, small islands as the water gradually turns more bright and blue. Although Turks and Caicos still has the most beautiful water I’ve ever seen, San Blas is a close second! It is so relaxing to be surrounded by such natural beauty and gets you away from the city life just a bit without having to travel too far.

    I would definitely check out Panama Viejo. The old area goes back to the conquistadors and slavery which is interesting if you’re into history. You’re able to roam around to explore what I would consider modern ruins and the top of the tower that still stands gives an amazing view of the “modern” Panama skyscrapers. The mix of old and new shows what’s great about the city.

    Panama is by far the friendliest place I have travelled to in South America! Panama City and it’s beautiful skyscrapers are a sight for sore eyes. It’s truly a special place no wonder it’s a tax haven for a lot of ex pats.
    Of all the places in South America I’ve travelled to thus far, Panama had the most English speakers and it was so easy to get around with Uber and the use of US dollar as local currency.
    I started off my adventures in Panama City, with an immediate stop at Cinta Costera, a government fitness project, with amazing views of the city and best place to take a picture with the Panama sign. There will be lots of people biking and running along the path. There is a play area with swings and slides for kids and it’s just a breath of fresh air right in the city! Not too far from there is Casco Viejo (Old Panama) or as the locals call it Casco. This place gives you a very authentic Latin feel away from the skyscrapers, with old buildings and an amazing vibe. A few years ago, it was one of the most dangerous places in South America but to see what it has become was very interesting. Casco is also the best place for night life. There are so many clubs and bars and a world renowned rum bar where you can try their best mojitos. They have rooftop bars that are that so popular that you can get in after 11pm because it’s already full. It’s so easy to bar hop because the bars are all down one street. So during the day you can enjoy a nice history tour of the area, then go home and freshen up to enjoy the night life:
    A few miles down, you’ll get your self to the cosway, with one of the best views of the city especially at sunset and at night. Another must do is hike up Ancon Hill, it’s worth the birds eye view of the city and you get to see an amazing view of the city and bit of the famous Panama Canal. There is also a beautiful spot to take a picture with the Panama flag in the back drop.
    Food and shopping is dirt cheap in Panama City so I spent quite a bit of time buying things I really didn’t need. Sandals and shorts can be as low as $3USD. Food is on average $9-$13 for a meal with drinks. You can try some of the local flavours or you can stick to what you know since they have: MacDonalds, Popeyes, Tony Roma’s, Subway and many others. I’d recommend trying the local food though, it’s very delicious! I recommend trying La Tapa Del Coco for some delicious Afro-Caribbean/Panamanian mix. They also have their own take on Chinese food at Don Lees.
    Panama City has a lovely mix of condos, which you can rent out through Airbnb and hotels. I did a mix of both in order to really get a good feel for Panama City life. Both were equally amazing and I would recommend a mix of both in order to experience how Panamanians in the City live.

    I was not a big fan of Panama. The Mall and shopping was great. The Panama Canal was not exciting to me. Not much of a night life. The people were not as friendly as in other places I’ve visited.

    Panama rich in history with the canal which is must visit and the museum is fairly cheap. I will say don’t go to Panama expecting lots of awesome beaches to lay out on being that most beaches are full of pumice stone that will cut you. Locals will know where to go for some of the few beaches. We went during Carnival and although its not the most lit carnival it was still a great time celebrating with the locals and seeing all the floats and costumes.

    Hi everybody,

    Panama City it’s such a nice city. There are many things to do there.
    First of all it’s very safe!
    I have been traveling alone all over Panama for 1 month.

    First thing to do is of course the Panama Canal!!! Aww this place it’s amazing. You can get there from everywhere in the city. You can get a local bus, a taxi or an uber. The entrance is about $15 you can stay I all day if you want. I’ll say that 3 hours it’s enough.
    With your ticket you have access to the history movie of the Panama Canal, some souvenirs shop, restaurants and of course a nice view (very close) to the canal.
    I been there an afternoon and I saw about 4 differents boats going through (all different seize ).

    Do you like to walk!?
    If so, you have a nice walk on la Cinta Costa. It’s about 30 to 45 min walk from the Multicentro mall to the Casco viejo (old town) it’s a very nice walk, quiet.
    When you get to the old town (Casco Viejo) you can walk around, listen some traditional music and of course do the sunset on a roof top.
    I enjoyed them so much. The alcohol is cheap about $4 during the happy hour with a beautiful view on the Panama City skyline. This was very nice to do.

    Do you like food just how I do!?
    If so, you definitely need to get some food from their Fish Market.
    That was so good, fresh food of course fish everywhere, tasty with nice drinks.
    Things to try:Ceviche (raw fish, very fresh and good as a starter) Patacones con Langousta (plantain banana with lobster) was just amazing.
    And of course Jugo de Maracuya (fruit passion juice).
    Hummm so good.

    Would you like to go out of Panama City and discover more about Panama!?
    If so, Albrook bus terminal is where you need to go.
    From the Albrook terminal you can go all over Panama by day or night (this country it’s amaizing for that).
    From Albrook you can go everywhere in Panama ( Boquete, Bocas del Torro, David, Aguadulce, Santa Clara, Santa Catalina…,).
    You can go everywhere. I have been to San Jose, Costa Rica for $40 from Albrook.

    I hope this review gonna help some of you.
