Carnaval in Las Tablas (Panama City)
I just got back to Panama and my husband told me his cousin has a house to rent in Las Tablas for Carnaval. It'll have two bedrooms available for use and one bathroom. The master suite will be locked off but no one will be there. At least two more mattresses can be added for use. The house is actually on the road to El Cocal, walking distance to Las Tablas (aprox. 15 mins) and on the bus route, so you're not actually in the midst of Carnaval. From there it is possible to visit some of the smaller towns to see their carnaval, for example Santo Domingo on Tuesday to see the polleras, and to go to some of the beaches.
The house is only 2 years old and fully furnished, so to be taken good care of.
If anyone is interested please let me know ASAP since carnaval starts on Friday with the crowning of the reinas of Calles Arriba and Abajo.
