We wanted to leave El Valle for Panama City early enough so that we would have time to explore a little and go out to eat dinner. So we left in the morning, figuring it would take a few hours. We crossed the Centennial Bridge and tried to follow our directions. However, we somehow made a wrong turn. And it started to pour.
After about 4 extra hours of driving around the country, we found our Bed & Breakfast. There are 3 rooms added on to the side of this home, about 20 minutes outside the city. The rooms are nicer than many hotel rooms we have stayed in.
The Pequeño Paraiso cost us $54 per night and that included breakfast. Rick, the proprietor, was very generous and let us use his GPS device for our rental. We got lost far less than we would have. Breakfast was carefully prepared for a vegetarian with lots of choices. Really special.
