I am heading to Panama City early November, planning to tramp around for a few months. Just wondering if anyone is down there, or if there is any advice someone may have, as it will be my first time!

It's a lot of fun! Hitchin is easy, friendly people. You can get to Panama from the States in a few weeks. Bring a few bucks to pay the border pigs in El Salvador and Nicaragua. its like six or seven dollars each time.

I've never been to Panama City. Are you only staying in Panama or traveling to other countries as well? I'd suggest getting out of the city asap. The cities down there are crowded and dirty and those marketplaces get old after a while. Change most of your money at a bank, not from one of the dealers at the border crossings.

Goal
$100.00

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $35.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $35.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully this will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $35.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $35.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
