2 layovers in PTY - Stay? See? Do?

Hi there,

We are going to be in Panama City in the afternoon (3:00ish) of 8 Feb, departing from Allbrook to Bocas on the early morning flight on Sat, 9 Feb.

We are looking for somewhere fairly close to the Allbrook airport becasue we need to be there on Sat at 0530. It doesn't have to be anything special, clean and budget friendly would be idea...Also what do you recommend to see and do.

We will be back in Pty on 21 Feb around noon and we don't fly out of the international Airport until 6pm on the 22 Feb. Again where should we stay, and what should we see and do. (Hotel requirements: clean and budget friendly).

Thanks for your help.

On your second visit, it sounds like you could stay almost anywhere, really - though allow yourself time to get to the airport through Panama City traffic.

Things to do ? What takes your fancy ? Usual things are - going to the Miraflores visitors center to see the canal; and/or wandering around the old part of the city.

Close to Albrook, I would recommend either the Country Inn and Suites Amador or the Holiday Inn Ciudad de Saber. Both are within 5 - 10 minutes of Albrook. Do not stay at the Albrook Inn.

On your return, I would recommend someplace in the city, such as Hotel Milan or Torres de Alba. Both are downtown, close to good restaurants and centrally located. Easy to get a taxi ride to Tocumen.

On your return, you'll have just enough time to see Miraflores Visitors Center.

Time to see Miraflores on either the afternoon of the 21st or on the 22nd, I would think.
