They call this place the Dubai of Latin America. Since I have been to Dubai three times I know the place pretty well and these cities sure have some things in common:
- High buildings
Things separating the cities:
- Culture – Arabic in Dubai vs Latino and Americano in Panama City.
- Humidity, Panama City is sticky!
- Sceneries; Dubai has desert, this is just green.
I came here right after the hurricane Otto so I guess the timing wasn’t the worst. A friend I met in Colombia was here during Otto and she told me it was a wet story.
Anyways, this place was just a short pit-stop after 2,5 weeks in the poor Colombia and before heading up through Central America for the coming month. It was a nice place to visit spend 2 days just to have some good food and visit some good gyms.
I guess there are some nice attractions like visiting the Panama Canal, but I saw that from above from the flight and felt it was enough actually. Always fun to visit new countries and their capitals, but this is a “been there done that” kind of place to me.
Next stop: the Pacific Coast of Costa Rica to catch some waves. Can’t wait!
