Old-time flavor

At Olympic National Park this past summer, we stayed at Kalaloch Lodge inside the park. We heated our room with a wood stove. It was like stepping back in time.

Police escort

One of the best experiences a traveler will have in Panama City is a personal tour at the ruins of Panama Viejo, or old town, by one of the uniformed Tourist Police (Policia de Turismo), usually outfitted in black shorts and a tan polo shirt. It's only offered if an officer has the time. There is no charge, but tips are welcome.
