My trip to Panama begins in Panama City. I’m traveling to the San Blas Islands on the Caribbean side of this little country located in Central America. My flight leaves at 6am and I’m obliged to stay over in Panama City to make the connection from the States.
I’m not impressed with Panama City. The traffic is quite horrific and I’m staying in an overrated, over priced B&B owned by an American couple trying to make a buck in this get rich economic climate. The highlight of my stay is a half day trip on the Panama Canal. After being bused about an hour inland, I begin my cruise which will include transitioning through two locks and ending in a marina outside of the city.
