The apartment is not too far outside the city. For US$1.00, you can take a taxi to the Howard bus stop where you can take a bus to the Grand Terminal Albrook for from $0.35. Taxis cost $15.00 from Howard to the Mall and Terminal and from there back to the apartment. Taxis from the bustop to the apartment are not as plentiful after 6pm but 20 minutes should be enough to walk in.
The area is quiet and great for bird watchers. We easily spotted tucans, tanagers, parrots and other birds from the balcony. There can be sandflies outside when it rains so insect repellant is advisable.
We preferred the back gate to access and leave the property, but that way can be a little muddy when it rains a lot. The other way would be via the apartment downstairs.
There is a police station next door and the officers that we met were helpful. Additionally, the place is spacious, comfortable and clean. Antonio and his niece were great hosts and were ready to help whenever necessary.
We would stay there again when visiting Panamá.
