Other expenses outside our fee that should be budgeted include rooms, meals, and entertainment for any nights in Panama City. We have a special rate at Hotel Milan of $45 approx. for a single room with double bed, or $74 approx. for a King Suite with wet bar and dining area that is great for couples or multi day stays. Hotel Milan holds reservations for us without prepayment so you just need to let us know what you want when you reserve and you pay upon arrival. There are many great restaurants and bars within walking distance and also some other nice hotels. We do caution about booking other Hotels too far removed from our pick up site as they may require you to leave early to reach our pick up location – traffic can be brutal in the city. Also budget two ground transfers from the Airport for around $60 total. Finally for those who ask our tipping recommendations we recommend a range of 15% to 20% of the trip total to be divided between guides, support staff, boat captains, and mates. You can add the tips in advance if you wish to do so by credit card.
