I'm going with a friend to Panama the first week in December. We are flying into Panama City on a Sunday and staying at the Country Inn & Suites Amador Hotel and first thing Monday morning we are flying to San Gil and staying at the Yandup Lodge. We had planned to stay there and fly back to Panama City Friday morning. As wonderful as this lodge sounds, I am thinking that 3 nights will be enough and we are thinking about flying back to Panama City on Thursday morning instead. We are leaving Saturday evening so we would have almost 3 more days.
I'm sure the hotel the travel agent picked will be fine for our first night but does anyone have any recommendations for our last two nights? We'd like to of course see Panama City but we might want to see some local towns or get in more beach time. Is anyone familiar with InterContinental Playa Bonita Resort & Spa ? Is sounds like we can get in our time getting some flavor of Panama City and some more beach time. Recommendations? Recommendations for day trips? Thanks,.
