For reasons of moving around in Central America and using Panama City as a hub we stayed in the Baru Lodge on 3 separate occasions during February. Good choice, as, although not necessarily in the most practical part of town, the establishment offers a really comfortable night's sleep in a little oasis away from the hustle bustle of the big...

As you can see from the pictures, there is a lovely courtyard out back where one can have breakfast or just sit and enjoy. The owner's English is excellent so that was...

“Our room was facing the street and was therefor a bit noisy in the mornings. I don't know for sure, but would suspect that rooms not facing the street would be quieter.”
