okay just a quick review, back home after 2 weeks in decameron and would not return.Had higher expectations but went with an open mind.
- no free wifi anywhere ($16.00 us per 24hrs of wifi)not so bad to get away from the bs though
-$ have to pay for safe (think i payed $45 for 2 wks?) $
-No fridge in room! no cans of beer,pop :( (charge for fridge if u request)
-if u bring cdn cash you will get .65 u.s back at the reception. ( bring credit card or debit, or even trav cheques)
-long way from panama city 2-2.5 hrs
-beach is very murky, sand is nice in some spots but streaky black in others.
-woodys close by but unless your a backpacker( which ive done heaps of) you will not be impressed as it is a dive,another newer woodys being built and will be open soon but doesn't look appealing and my personal opinion i dont travel all that way to meet other canadians.
-too many quebecois and people from toronto....nuff said
-hot hot hot in dec,jan but in the evenings dont expect it to cool down much it was 30c at 2am
-panamanian people were amazingly friendly in the city
-many columbians at the resort, no probs nice people in general
-interesting history and sightseeing around panama city.
-not many americans as panama has taken over the canal zone etc.
-beautiful property with amazing trees etc.
-difficult to find people who speak fluent english,why a pro? well learn some of the language and stop expecting the country you visit to learn yours.
ideal way to see panama? rent a taxi driver for the day, cheap and air con is a must
BEST OF LUCK!
