Great place to stay for a central location to Panama City. We traveled all over the key spots in the city using Uber and the highest fee was $7.00 (Panama Canal). The airport was higher but still reasonable. The staff was amazing at meeting our needs nice restaurant and bar

Our last night in Panama was spent at the Bristol. Room was nice, and the bathroom was huge with a separate shower and tub AND private toilet area. Lots of lighting options in bathroom and bedroom. I also had a massage in the spa, and we ate in the restaurant. However, I

In case The Bristol doesn't answer you, they have a shuttle that you have to make a reservation for, and it costs about the same as a taxi, which have set prices from the airport. It was $35, as I recall. It's about a 30 minute trip. The consierge at The Bristol can set you up with transportation to Colon. Uber is very popular there and would probably be the cheapest way to go since it's a pretty long drive. The consierge there is fantastic.. ask them for advice.. There's a lot to see within walking distance of The Bristol.. The boardwalk along the Pacific and Casa Vieja (3 miles) are must check outs.. Have fun!

Good Afternoon Ships99, Thank you for writing us through TripAdvisor. We do not make these kind of tour frequently; however, it is not impossible to arrange. We have some contacts that could offer us a good deal for you to have a fantastic experience on board of a Catamaran at the beautiful beaches of the Atlantic Ocean. For this request I would highly appreciate if you give us some time, so we can investigate more and give you a precise answer. Meanwhile, how would you like to get to San Blas from the city? by plane, helicopter or car? We are looking forward to your answer. In case you have any other question no dot hesitate to contact the Concierge.
