The Ideal Language Travel Itinerary for 1 Week in Panama City

Posted by |


Your time in Panama City should start with the sunrise and end with the sunset. Many people often don't find lots of the hidden gems in Panama City so we’ve put together a 1 week itinerary for you to make sure you don’t miss a thing during your Spanish learning vacation!

Saturday

International flights from Europe normally land in the afternoon or evening at Tocumen Airport. If you're coming from North America or the rest of the world, you could land at anytime of the day, so we'll assume you just want to relax, chill and settle in your hotel or homestay upon arrival. If you do manage to arrive earlier, feel free to pass by the school (Habla Ya Panama City is open from 9 am to 3 pm on Saturdays), get to know us and we'll give you all the tips and insider information you'll need! And if we're doing something ourselves on the weekend, we might end up hanging together too!

So if you're not drained from traveling (or from working before traveling), make the most of it and head towards Casco Viejo, stroll around and pick one of the trendy restaurants that surround our colonial plazas and just start taking it all in. I hope you packed your very best dancing shoes: you're going to need them. Don't know where to party? In search of sophistication or authenticity?
