I am traveling solo and arriving Panama City ( PTY ) airport 2/8/10 around 9:00 PM. Will be leaving 2/10/10 @ 6:30 AM for Bocas from the local airport. ( Albrook I think. )
I am looking for a place that is convenient to Albrook for the early flight to Bocas. Also, safe and not expensive. I have seen mention of La Estancia and the Balboa Inn?? Something $75.00 or less per night if possible.
Since I will only be in Panama City for only one full day, suggestions for a one day quickie tour of the city would be appreciated. I am going to be in Panama for about a month so will likely finish my Panama City excursions, along with a Lake Gatun Fishing trip on the end of my trip.
Also are there airport shuttles to the hotels that are less $$ or should I just plan on a taxi. Taxi fare estimates to any place recommended would be appreciated.
