          We had a beautiful room with a full tub, king size bed and shower. The property is beautiful, the service is great and the food really nice. We even played golf which was included in the rate that we got. The course is enjoyable.

          How does one get to the resort from the airport? I assume we fly into Panama City? How long is the transfer?

          You can fly directly to Rio Hato from Panama or even fly there from Toronto. From there the hotel can pick you up or you can get a taxi.
