this is a beach for the local people with little specials to see. No particular reason to visit as tourist. Panama definitely has other places to see.

This is the closest "beach" to the city, but i would not go in it. the neighborhood close by is not the best in the world. There are a lot of restaurants and bars opening up here, and hopefuly that will fix up the place.

silt, jellyfish, garbage - what more can I say to stop you endangering yourself and loved ones. Nice lemonade at the last café on the beach, though.
