Editor's Comment: Yup, tourists are great. They come here, look around, spend money, buy some stuff, eat at the restaurants, and leave. We love tourists. Now, if only the government of Panama would WTFU and start doing some things to help tourism. Like - putting a stop to the corrupt cops who continue to suck bribes out of tourists on the Inter American Highway with a radar gun and a threat of a huge fine. I received another email about that same thing just today. Whatever. Maybe getting pulled over by a corrupt cop in a third world country is part of the "charm." Honestly, it's hard for me to see some of the stuff that needs to be fixed (from a tourist point of view) because I've been here for so long. OK you sun baked partially dehydrated rental car warriors from Oshkosh ... what should Panama do to make the country more tourist friendly, to attract even more billions of dollars to the local economy?
