Oswaldo and his wife were perfect host. I was greeted by them a scheduled. They left me some bananas, fruit juice and some eggs to get started before I could go to the store. The apartment was very clean and the furniture was up to date. Big problem! The apartment had no air conditioning. There were only two floor fans and fans on the ceiling. I would suggest to Oswaldo that he would have the bedroom with air conditioning. The other thing. It was really difficult to find his property. My taxi did not know where to go. Finally after much confusion we made it to the apartment. Do not come here without knowing Spanish and speaking it fluently. Big Mistake. Another thing. Get the best insurance possible because you are going to need it. It is not like the United States where you can get by without it. Anyway, the insurance is mandatory. If you are not a super duper defensive driver I can assure you that you are going to have a fender bender. I speak from experience. I had two accidents. One on the 2nd of October and another on the 4th. If you do have a accident in the city it will be minor.WAIT FOR THE POLICE!! DO NOT MOVE YOUR CAR GO TO THE SIDE WALK AND WAIT FOR THE POLICE! YOUR INSURANCE IS NO GOOD AND YOU WILL PAY FOR THE DAMAGE. ANYWAY, PANAMA CITY HAS NO STREET NAMES AND NO STREET NUMBERS. THE ARE SOME STREETS THAT HAVE NAMES, BUT, THEY ARE VERY RARE. DO NOT DRIVE IN THE CITY CENTER. THIS WILL INCREASE YOUR CHANCE OF A ACCIDENTS 100 PER CENT. DO NOT DRIVE ON THE STREETS IN THE CENTER. ALL THE TOURIST SITES ARE ON THE OUTSKIRTS. MAKE SURE YOU SEE PANAMA VIEJO, THE FORTRESSES OF OLD PANAMA, THE CANAL, SOME INTERESTING AND BEAUTIFUL CHURCHES, THE BEACH, AND THE MILITARY INSTALLATION. IF YOU WANT TO GO OUT AT NIGHT MAKE SURE YOU HAVE A COMPANION. THERE ARE MANY RESTAURANTS IN CONGREJO AND NEAR CONGREJO. THE POLICE HAVE A HIGH PRESENTS. THEY WILL EVEN HAVE POLICE GUARDS ON EVERY CORNER, A SMALL CONVENIENT STORE, BANKS, PARKING LOTS, BEACHES, TOURIST SITES, MUSEUMS AND IN PRIVATE RESIDENCES. THEY ARE ARMED WITH M 16S, PISTOLS, NIGHT STICKS, AND BULLET PROOF VEST. NEVER ARGUE WITH A POLICE OFFICER. CALL THE OFFICER JEFE, THAT IS A FE, TO BE EXCACT. REGARDLESS OF WHO YOU ARE DONT ASK FOR DIRECTIONS. YOU CAN ASK TEN DIFFERENT PEOPL AND GET TEN DIFFERENT ANSWERS. DONT EVEN THING OF RIDING A MOTORCYCLE HERE. YOU WILL BE KILLED. IF YOU DO GO TOWARD THE BRIDGE OF THE AMERICAS AND YOU WILL FIND OPEN HIGHWAYS THAT HAVE THREE LANES EACH WAY. ENJOY A PLEASANT RIDE. THERE ARE NO HARLEYS HERE. AS FAR AS I KNOW YOU CAN NOT RENT THEM HERE. IF YOU ARE STAYING FOR A EXTENDED STAY YOU CAN BUY A KIA FOR 11 THOUSAND OR A MOTORCYCLE 15 HUNDRED. ENJOY PANAMA!!
