In 2013, Panama was *the* it destination of the year, having been written up in tons of magazines and guides, including Travel and Leisure. But that ranking was based off of all-inclusive resorts, not for people like me who like to walk around aimlessly and eat street food. If you're like me, you'll be just as disappointed. The streets weren't safe or pretty and you have to pay top dollar for a good meal. And if you don't have a paid activity planned, there's nowhere to just hang out.
