In the morning we hit the hot springs in El Valle, then the waterfall a few kilometres away. Both attractions are overpriced for what they are and a little underwhelming. We've been to much better hot springs through Central America and although the waterfall was pretty enough, for $4usd pp, plus an additional $4usd pp to swim in the pools (you can get away without paying this), it's not really worth the 2 hour round trip detour from the interamericano.

We walked around the market, then made the 2.5 hour journey to Panama City. We went to Balboa Yacht Club, which is a bit of a campervan community as overlanders come here to get other vehicles to share the cost of the container being shipped to Columbia. We have already sorted this out with people from a forum in www.drivetheamericas.com .

After getting wasted in the heat, we went along the coast and did some shopping. We then came back to the Yacht Club and chatted away with other travellers doing a similar trips and picked up some tips/gave advice. Always needed.
