During our time in Panama City we did the obvious things any tourist would do whilst visiting the Panamanian capital. On our first day we caught a taxi to the Causeway, a thin road that connects the mainland with four small islands at the mouth of the Canal. We decided to air on the side of caution and jump in a taxi. The causeway itself was nice. We arrived a bit too early and so all the restaurants and bike rental places were shut but we walked along to the end of the road in Isla Flamenco anyway and watched some of the big ships lumbering into the mouth of the canal.We stayed in the Panamericana Hostel which is located in the Tomas Herrara plaza in Casco Viejo, the old part of the city. A lot of the buildings in the area are run down and deserted which made for great photos as we wandered around the streets. One of the first things we noticed was the sheer volume of police presence around the area.Day 2:
If one is interested to explore the island, there is a flight that takes you there or a boat or a ferry that takes you around these islands. It is an extremely comfortable travel, with a lot of destinations along the journey itself.
