Our family will be spending one night in Panama City, Panama for a layover. We plan to go from PTY to a hotel in the city to the Miraflores Visitors Center, and then back between those stops. We have four people and will have about 5 big suitcases and 2 guitars. I've tentatively booked an SUV through Payless for $27, but I'm reading so many reviews that say what a nightmare that can be (extra charges, inefficient service, traffic dangers, parking, etc.). It seems like the taxi prices for one person are $25 to the hotel then about $20 to the Canal Visitors Center (and then double those for coming back). Also, we wouldn't all fit in a standard taxi. Is renting an SUV for one day really that bad? Or, can anyone give us advice for getting to where we need to go on a very limited budget? Also, are there safe lockers in the PTY airport that maybe we can leave some of our luggage overnight?? THANKS in advance for help you can give us! We're leaving in late July!
