The parallel world
Last month my family and I visited Panama, a country with two different realities: the colonial and the natural. We stayed at three hotels, first the Marriott Panama City. This is perfectly suited for shopping or business. The last hotel we stayed in was the Double Tree by Hilton, but the one that really caught my attention was the Westin Playa Bonita. It is ten minutes from the city but in another world completely. It has four swimming pools, two restaurants, and spectacular sea-view suites. You can see the Pacific from a completely different perspective, with islands, warm sea, and so many shells that it can be difficult to walk down to the water.
