Great Info for Trip Planning

Found a site that answers many weather related questions one might have about David like “what’s the average temperature, humidity or rainfall”.

I like the layout better on the site but I cut and pasted it here for quick reference.                                David weather

Casitas for Rent in Cuesta de Piedra

Affordable Accommodations while Exploring or just Relaxing in Panama

The Panama Adventure

Recently there have been some people looking for short term rentals, so I posted about a house sharing possibility #1, and the house sharing possibility #2, and here are a couple casitas for short term or long term rental.

Cuesta de Piedra is a small town between Concepción and Volcan. A Google Map will help you find it. It is at a higher elevation and cooler than David and the towns along the highway. The area is mostly farms and a lot of dairy cattle, and it’s really beautiful. The casitas are on Cedo’s property, and behind them is her farm. The farm has dairy cattle, pigs, chickens, and some plant crops for personal use. There is a caretaker and his family who live on the farm and do the daily work.

The bigger casita was a restaurant in the past. Now it has been turned back in to a…

la Feria Internacional de David

La Feria Internacional de David (the International Fair of David) is a yearly event in March. I hope to be able to attend. Great Photos

The Panama Adventure

La Feria Internacional de David (the International Fair of David) is a yearly event in March. People come from a number of other countries to participate, and the fairgrounds come alive with activity. There are things for sale, things to look at, businesses sharing information, plenty of food, and fun things for children and adults.

We went on a Wednesday afternoon hoping to avoid the crowds that can descend in the night and on the weekend.

There were multiple buildings full of vendors selling all sorts of things, mainly clothes, shoes, purses, backpacks, and other personal / decorative items. I didn’t need anything and was very good about just window shopping until I saw an observation bee hive where I ended up talking and then buying a bottle of honey. (I was a backyard beekeeper in the US so this interests me) I was too busy chatting though and didn’t even…

Residency! (and a good lawyer)

Congrats Kris – another Panama Success Story

The Panama Adventure

It’s official, we are now legal residents of Panama! We went to Panama City last Wednesday, spent a bit of time at immigration, and left with our official residency cards.

I wrote a post about our application process HERE, which we did in December 16th. On February 15th our lawyer told us that our residency was ready (two months – very fast).

It can happen that there is actually some problem so rather than call us to Panama City for nothing, our lawyer requested that we send our passports and temporary cards to him by Uno Express. He took them to immigration to verify that there were no problems to be ironed out and everything was good to go.

On the 25th (after I returned from a short trip) we touched base and he told me that yes, everything was ready and we only needed to come to Panama City. We…
