Its time again to start planning our next trip. We are a family of 4, 2 kids aged 8 & 9 years. Love the beach & a little bit if culture/history.
For 3 years, we did beach vacations to Mexico, Jamaica & the DR.
Then this January, we did a 10 day trip covering Guatemala & Honduras. We flew to Guatemala City, travelled to Antigua, went on to Copan for 2 days & then the final leg which took us by road to la Ceiba & ferry to Roatan. So the boys are fairly well travelled.
This time, we are thinking of covering Panama & Columbia. The initial plan is to fly to Panama City, see the canal & the indian villages, & maybe fly to Bocas del Toro for a couple of days(5 days in Panama). Then fly to Columbia for 3-4 days & then fly back home. Has anyone follwed this itenary? (5 days). I was wondering how we should spilt our time between Panama City & BDT? How easy are the connections between the cities on our itenary? Any other places that could be an option- David or Colon. I was wondering how easy the connections between the cities are? Anything to be kept in mind for the kids? Last but not least, 2 of us are vegetarians, so was wondering about meal options. So far, we have not had a problem anywhere we have gone.
