After spending the night at anchorage, we took a tender to the marina at Fuerte Amador on the outskirts of Panama City where we boarded a Hop on Hop off Bus to explore “the Dubai of Central America.” At the marina there were local dancers to greet us. We have either, been to or passed Panama City many times before and each time were amazed at the number of new skyscrapers that appear on the skyline. On our travels around, the bays were almost dry (low tide) due to the extreme tides that occur here. After a perfect day for exploring the city we were treated to a spectacular sunset as we left Panama and stated our 8 days across the Pacific Ocean towards Nuku Hivia in French Polynesia.
