Staying at B & B La Estancia one night - what to do

I'll be arriving in Panama City on a Saturday and staying overnight at La Estancia. Would it be safe for a woman in her 50's to walk up Ancon Hill alone? I'd appreciate ideas about the what else I could do for the afternoon and evening. I assume there won't be time for a tour since my flight doesn't arrive until 2:30 pm. This is my first trip alone so I'm a bit nervous.

You could get a taxi to the Miraflores Visitor Cente - though that closes as 5 pm.

Or get a taxi into the old town.

Thanks beardocubauk. The idea of climbing the hill to see the view and maybe seeing wildlife appeals to me, but since I'll only be in PC until the next morning, I want to make the most of my time. Any idea how much a taxi would be from La Estancia to the old town?

Maybe drop your bags at La Estanciaa and have your taxi take you to the top and walk down. It's a pretty strenuous hike with no streetlights so you don't want to be wandering around in the dark.

$3 cab to Casco Viejo for a nice walk around in the evening and dinner.

Enjoy your stay.
