Riu Playa Blanca

Hi, my family and will be there in March and I have a couple of questions please:

Did you purchase your tours on the flight or at the resort? We are flying with Sunwing.

Which Panama Canal tours would you recommend; view from viewing gallery or on a boat?

If you've visited Panama City was it on a tour or on your own?

Thank you so much

Those shopping trips aren't always what you hope they'll be. Often they'll take you to a specific spot, and you don't have a lot of freedom to go elsewhere - by design - since they may have a deal worked out with the place they've taken you. So definitely do some research on the destination and agenda.

I got back on Saturday and there is a smoking area close to the beach next to the pool with the swim up bar.
