  1. If you filled the form out in English, then "Boquete" will probably be shown as "Gap" in the dropdown (which is the english translation of boquete).
  2. Al Stefanelli shared a link. Visual Storyteller · 11 hrs COMMUNICATION #200 • SEPTEMBER 11TH The Official Gazette today published Decree 1078, by means of which the restrictions on mobility of people established by reason of the pandemic are lifted. The rule establishes that from September 2020 the curfew will be in force at the new 11:00 p.m. at 5:00 a.m. from Monday to Saturday. The curfew for the provinces of Bocas del Toro, Colón and Chiriquí remains in force from Monday to Thursday
  3. Does anyone have an aerobic step, with risers, for sale in the Boquete area?
  4. Yes, I was told this yesterday by a Panamanian!
  5. Not really. Panama has not been testing and/or reporting recoveries for many weeks - their recovery numbers have been blatantly low compared to other coutries. 3 weeks ago there were 4000+ cases in Panama. Today, all of those have either recovered or died.
  6. I went to Gago yesterday, and a young woman took my temperature before I went in! ( Well, I think she did, she was having a bit of trouble making it work!)
  7. I believe the jump in numbers of patients in Boquete is due to the fact that they all come from the same family, tho' if I am wrong, I am sure someone will correct me?
  8. Can you list the frozen goods so that we don't have to visit just to find out? Also, are you offering delivery service?
  9. Here's a Google Maps link to the exact location together with photos from last year's gathering: https://goo.gl/maps/XctGokc5buytJZei6 Here's a link to their website: https://www.tribalgathering.com/home
  10. We had a wonderful time last night - awesome food, great ambience, a large single Table where you meet new friends (10 guests last night), beautiful location and exceptional service from Claudia, Luis and the rest of the staff. We will be doing this again...
  11. We were lucky enough to stay in the Burj Khalifa for 3 nights last year around about this time, it is amazing! Tho' you have to go outside and stand well back to appreciate the wonderful light displays, and the accompanying music. They also have great evening fountain displays in the man-made lake in front of the building, with lights and music. I bet the Panamanian flag looked stunning! If you watch this, do it full screen.
  12. We took 2 Uber rides in Panama City yesterday. The first was ~4 km and took 25 minutes (rush hour) and cost $4:18. The second was ~3.2 km and took 12 minutes and cost $2.53. I'm sure that, as gringos, we'd have been charged much more if we'd taken a yellow taxi. These prices are ridiculously low, and we cannot see how the drivers make any money.
  13. I don't know if gates are dedicated to particular flights. For Tocumen, it's possible Copa has a specific block of gates assigned to them, but how is this relevant to the international vs. domestic terminal discussion? At Tocumen the departure lounge has all the duty free shops, which are not supposed to be available for domestic travelers (strictly enforced in Canada), and access to the lounge is only available through passport control. The logistics of allowing domestic travelers access to the same lounge (bypassing passport control) would promote violation of border control procedure
  14. Tocumen processes approx. 15 million passengers each year. Of those, only 215,000 are domestic (less than 1.5%). There are 2 domestic flights in each day and 2 departures - the Copa DAV-PTY flights that you use. All other domestic flights use Allbrook Airport. Until a few years ago, Tocumen was solely an international airport, until Copa started the DAV route. According to https://www.bts.dot.gov/newsroom/2018-traffic-data-us-airlines-and-foreign-airlines-us-flights in the US, domestic passengers account for more than 75% of all passengers. The expense of creating a separate
  15. Had a great quality sandwich and salad at Isabella's yesterday. Very nice bright, clean, minimalist addition to the long list of Boquete's restaurants. https://www.google.com.pa/maps/place/Isabella's+Bakery+%26+More/@8.7745448,-82.4339898,1216m/data=!3m2!1e3!4b1!4m5!3m4!1s0x8fa5ed277c31767d:0x1326eb4aeaddc573!8m2!3d8.7745395!4d-82.4318011?hl=en
  16. Blocked print heads - doesn't print. If anyone believes they can unclog blocked print heads, then this would be a great printer. Scan function works fine and doesn't need ink. https://epson.com.jm/For-Work/Printers/Inkjet/Epson-EcoTank-L575-All-in-One-Printer/p/C11CE90301 Your's for free - just need to pick it up! WhatsApp Mike on 6768-5128.
  17. Mmm, trying to park now is hard enough! Maybe they will build an underground car - park!? LOL
  18. We went to the museum on one of our PC trips, it is really interesting and well- worth a visit. It would also benefit from more publicity, generally!
  19. I'd be surprised if there will be any change to the current domestic terminal and associated bus connection any time soon. With only 2 domestic flights in and 2 out each day, I just don't see the justification to support a special domestic facility in the new terminal. Does anyone have any connections with Copa that could confirm or deny?
  20. Finally! Does anyone know the reason for the significant delay in opening. We heard it was because Naturgy wanted an exorbitant fee to connect the electric, but can anyone in the know confirm or deny?
