We HIGHLY recommend Nancy and Mike's B&B in Panama City! There is a reason that they are #1 on tripadvisor, I assure you. My partner and I were traveling with our 2 year old daughter and Nancy, Mike, Melissa and John made everything so easy for us. It was like staying with relatives -- they picked us up at the airport, took us to the pharmacy and grocery store, did our laundry, made us delicious meals and gave us a grand tour of Panama City, all for very reasonable fees. The room was very quiet and comfortable and the pool was refreshing. It is located in a very pretty residential area about 15-20 minutes' drive from the most interesting parts of town (Casco Viejo, Ancon Hill, Amador Causeway, Miraflores Locks).
After staying at Coconut Lodge, we went to Bocas del Toro for 6 days before flying again out of Panama City. Nancy and Mike allowed us to leave most of our luggage (since the domestic flights have strict weight limits) and even lent us an overnight bag(!) for our trip. They did more laundry for us while we were in Bocas. Although we weren't staying with them on our way home after Bocas since we had a flight back to NY the same day, they picked us up at the airport and brought us back to Coconut Lodge to pick up our luggage. They made us breakfast and we had a swim and a hot shower, then brought us to Tocumen Airport for the trip home. Particularly traveling with a 2 year old I cannot imagine how it could have been easier.
Although we considered staying in Casco Viejo, which is quite interesting, Panama City is very hot and it was a real pleasure to tour the city and then come back to a quiet place in the "country" but so close to downtown.
Thank you again for a fantastic stay in Panama.
