I know this topic has been beat to death, but I'm trying to decide if I should do 2 layover trips in panama city or just try for one. I've read all the old threads, so I'm aware of places to go and details and such, but am just looking for some opinions. On Tuesday I'll be there on a 5 hour layover from 10AM to 3pm, then later in the month on a Wednesday Ill be there from 8:30AM and will have 7 hours until I leave at 3:30PM. I'd like to check out the canal visitors center area, and casco viejo, and possibly the ruins. Is it smart and feasible to split this up amongst the 2 layovers? or should I try to do as much as possible during the 7 hour layover?
I'm already in touch with a driver that people mentioned here, his email is Vegaluis2010@gmail.com because I think doing it that way would be the best use of our time and the money would be somewhat similar to getting a taxi when needed. Any thoughts or details would be appreciated, thanks :)
