5 websites you should be using in Panama

DegustaPanama

Panama has a great mix of cultures and flavors that are reflected in our gastronomy. Degusta is the first gastronomic guide of Panama where restaurants are qualified by their consumers. It’s like Yelp.com. People share their opinions which in most cases are accurate, valuable and entertaining than those of a specialized critic. Get to know a new restaurant or even discover new dishes at a favorite restaurant, this website is an excellent tool during your stay here. As a foodie guy, I totally recommend it.

In Degusta you can find the contact information of the restaurants, their address, schedules and most importantly, the rating and comments of the users. Reservations can be made through this website!

They specialize in providing transportation, hotel, internal flights, airport shuttle services, and tours to different places around the city. The most popular places are: Boquete in the province of Chiriquí, close to Volcan Baru (inactive volcano) San Blas Islands (lots of beaches), Day Tours (City tour, Embera village, Portobello & San Lorenzo, both located in the province of Colon).
