My husband and I decided to take our kids, ages 8 and 14, on an adventure for spring break. So while their friends lounged on a Mexican resort beach or stood in lines at Disney world, we headed for a cultural experience filled with adventure, nature, history, and yes, great beaches.
Alyce at casa sucre was the ideal host as we began our journey. She lined up a private guide/driver who met us at the airport and whisked us past the thrilling skyline of modern panama cit to Casco Viejo, the old colonial city located across the bay. Located on a narrow peninsula, walks down narrow streets often lead to amazing scenes of ultra modern skyscrapers framed by the 100 year old buildings in the neighborhood.
Casa Sucre was in the ideal location to enjoy and explore. Our guide picked us up after the amazing breakfast alyce and her lovely mother served us, to give us a great tour of the lock and city. Part of any panama city tour includes the old city, and we were staying right In the heart of it. We walked the narrow streets with our kids feeling safe, and mesmerized by the overwhelming display of architecture, poverty cohabitating amongst gentrification, and history. Great restaurants were within walking distance, alyce recommended and pointed us in the right direction out the front door.
Our room was perfect, they have an apartment at street level with a quiet courtyard. Our son used the pull out couch, and the four of us were comfortable.
Our guide also lined up a private boat ride to see monkeys and zip along part of the canal in a fishing boat. Amazing experience to drive past giant freighters, the kids loved it.
Go to panama, and stay with lovely alyce. Then head to the small airport and take a short flight to bocas del toro..... Nothing "all inclusive" about this trip...... And that's a good thing!
