Playa Blanca Feb1-8/ 2013

My husband and I are looking forward to our first all-inclusive trip! We plan on a day trip to El Valle and watching the Super Bowl at Woody's Beach Bar and Grill. Looking for thoughts on another activity that doesn't require a 2 hr ride....is there anything other than El Valle that is less than 2 hrs away?

You can visit Penonome - small town in the interior about an hour away from the resort. You can take a bus, but go early. Penonome is very hot this time of year

Playa Blanca is wayyyyyyyyyyyy out in the middle of nowhere. When you travel there, you must be satisfied being a beach and pool person as seeing a great wonder like the Canal is an entire day trip..

Do the Embera indians trip. We did it from the Decameron last year and it was great, even though at the end we had torrential rain. First you get a boat trip through the rain forest in a canoe, then a walk through the rainforest (wear shoes you can walk in streams with), then stop for a swim at the waterfall. After that back to canoe and off to the indian village, where they feed you and dance and also sell souvenirs. It was a really good day. If you get Nicola as your guide she is wonderful. We are back in Panama from the end of Feb for a month and are at the Decameron again for 4 nights from the 28th Feb.
