 SURROUNDINGS / REGION
Panama City, whose metropolitan area is home to nearly half of the country's 4 million people. Panamanians believe in general that the word Panama means "abundance of fish, trees and butterflies". Panama was inhabited by several indigenous tribes prior to settlement by Spanish in the 16th century.  Panama's tropical environment supports an abundance of plants. Forests dominate, interrupted in places by grasslands, scrub, and crops and the wildlife is the most diverse in Central America. It is home to many South American species as well as to North American wildlife.  The culture is reflected in traditional products, such as woodcarvings, ceremonial masks and pottery, as well as in Panama's architecture, cuisine and festivals. In earlier times, baskets were woven for utilitarian uses, but now many villages rely almost exclusively on income from the baskets they produce for tourists. Panamanian cuisine is a mix of African, Spanish, and Native American techniques, dishes, and ingredients, reflecting its diverse population

Instalaciones realmente hermosas con un bosque húmedo lleno de ranas rojas como patio trasero. Las habitaciones compartidas son amplias y muy bien diseñadas, generan un ambiente ideal para conocer gente de todo el mundo.

Other (e.g. Surroundings, Nightlife, etc.):

En el bar probé casi todo el menú de cocktailes y todos me parecieron deliciosos. La noche de fiesta fue espectacular y fue el punto de reunión de todo Bocas. Pero lo que más me enamoró fue la calidez del personal y su atención, siempre con una sonrisa. Definitivamente se convierten en amigos durante los días de hospedaje y le ponen sabor a las actividades que se desarrollan durante la noche. Totalmente recomendado
