2 resorts 1 trip | Debbie's Caribbean Resort Reviews Forums

We are already looking for our next year trip. Would very much like to do the 2 resorts on 1 trip with Transat. 11 nights at the RD and 4 nights in Panama City, less traveling to go visit the Panama Canal and the City. Has anyone done it before. If so do you recommend it. I would like to do the city at the end of the vacation, would be closer to the Airport when the time to leave comes.

I believe that the he trip is eleven nights at the RD and three nights (not 4) in Panama City. (or Gamboa Rainforest Resort) When we stayed at the RD last month we took the Panama Canal Tour from the RD on a Friday and several people with us on the tour transferred to Radisson Decapolis Panama City after the tour. As you suggested it would be shorter for them to get to the airport from the City. (I’m sure one advantage of leaving from Panama City to the airport would be the ellimination of having to put your bags out at 4:30 AM on the last day as at the RD)

We did not do the two Resort package so I can’t give you further information …

You’r right byerbill I hit the wrong key,its 3 not 4. Hope to have more response from people who experience it though. We would be leaving from Montreal. If some one knows the departure time that would be great too.

Hi febe, If you are going to do this 2 in 1 trip, do the first stint at the RD by all means. We did just that but chose to stay at the Gamboa for the last part of the trip. A great feature was, as already noted, the time to the airport is cut in less than 1/2 the time from the RD. And many of the excursions are closer from Gamboa OR P.C. We loved our experience going to visit the Imbera Indians. We also took a short cruise on the Canal. All these were in close proximity instead of making a lengthy excursion from the RD. As we didn’t stay at the Decapolis, we missed out on shopping at the huge mall, which was highly touted by those who had spent the last three nights at the Decapolis instead of the Gamboa. Please feel free to p.m. if you have any questions.

Thanks North Gal, that is what we expected to do. It will only be next year though. We are leaving for Quebec tomorrow then the next day off to Puerto Plata, in April it will be Punta Cana, but next year Panama for shure.
