The issue being in Panama City isn’t just comfort but enjoyment. In order for you to have fun while going around this beautiful city, there are five simple things you must remember:

Wear sunscreen.
This may sound funny since Panama is usually a cloudy place. But like it or not, you must always apply sunscreen in your face, neck, and back. Why so? Because Panama is just eight degrees north of the equator. This means that humans are much more susceptible to get fried with ultraviolet rays compared to someone in Iowa (especially if you’re from Iowa). Nobody’s exempt, that includes you. Unless of course, you enjoy looking like cooked lobster and the feel of sunburn on your skin.

Do not be rude to the locals.
Panamanians (especially the city folks) are not the friendliest people in the world. But they’re not the rudest either. So, if you’re not nice to them, they can simply return the attitude back at you. As for me, I always initiate every encounter with a smile. I try to make them at ease. It may sound very Miss America, but a smile always helps to win people over. And they’re free too. Just don’t be a moron about it.

Bring a camera wherever you go.
Panama is one of the best places that photographers love to visit. If you’re not good in taking photos, the breathtaking beauty of the sceneries will force you to be one. The sceneries range from the panoramic view of the Panama Canal to the low light shots of the city during night time. There are so many things to appreciate in Panama and many pictures you will take. You will never, ever be bored with a camera in Panama. I promise you that.

Don’t dress down when you’re out and about.
If you’re observant enough, you’ll realize that the people of Panama are accustomed to going out, dressed up. A person wearing baggy clothes walking around the streets is a rare sight. When you go to the grocery stores, you won’t find anybody wearing baggy clothes and flip-flops (unless they’re tourists). Dressing down is still a ‘no-no’ according the general decorum of Panama. So a bit of tasteful clothing not only makes you look good, you get treated better by the natives as well.

Be in your best behavior.
No tourist who drains out his/her pocket for a Panama vacation should put on a sad face. You can’t afford to, really. Panama is like the last place you’d want to have a bad mood in. Nor will it be very hard to stay annoyed for long. When the party in Panama starts, the fun comes rollling and you forget why you ever put on a frowny face. That’s the reason you go to Panama, right? To have fun? Don’t ever forget that.
