Panamanians live happily in very basic conditions.  That means most likely they don’t have hot water, screens on their windows, fancy furniture, or well-lit houses.  If you know that you aren’t prepared to live comfortably in conditions like these, it may be better for you to take a look at the other accommodations that we have in Pedasí.
