Hello We are planning our move to Panama next month but we heard recently a lot about the Zika virus (caused by a certain mosquito bite) that would be dangerous for women wanting to be pregnant and pregnant women as it could cause brain damage to the child. The general travel advice is to postpone trips to Panama (and the whole Caribbean region) if you are in one of these 2 categories (which I am). I wonder if this a more a pre-cautious measurement that the governments are taking or if the danger is imminent. I'm well aware that protecting you with clothes and naturel mosquito creams are a must. For those living in the Panama City area, have you heard about it? What's happening there? Anybody who has recommendations of a doctor/gyneco I could contact in Panama City? Thank you!
Hey guys just wondering if anyone has any insights for running in the city? I love to run, but I have tried in the city and it never works out too well :( There are so many holes in the streets (if there even is a sidewalk!) and down wires and glass and when it rains tiles get slippery. I have fallen or tripped twice! I am starting to think I have to stop running here which would make me so sad! Please tell me if there is a good place to run in this city!!!!
I am used to paying around $30 in the states for a brand new mega gym with great equipment. The gyms I have looked at here have been so expensive for what they offer! Can anyone recommend a good gym in Panama that is affordable? I really dont want to pay more than $50 a month...
Hey did anyone see this:http://www.panama-guide.com/article.php/20120714184142678Super mosquitoes in Panama?Yeah mosquito born diseases suck, but this feels too much like the beginning of some superhero/zombie apocalypse movie. I hope they did enough research into what happens when these things start interbreeding or whatever. First giant mosquito I see, I'm outta here.
