    So you’re in Panama … and you want to get drunk …

    no suprises, of course! There are three main touristy areas in Panama City that you could do, but only two places that will be absolutely thumping!

    A Trini, a Thai and a Russian walk up to a Panamanian bartender …

    Caribana ’10 seems a bit more secure …

    If you think that having pods of 10 cops on every street corner downtown is more security, then Toronto Caribana ’10 must be one of the safest places in Earth.

The La Fortuna Waterfall is no different and offers a nice little adventure and some wonderful scenery. The waterfall is located about 5 1/2 kilometers …
