I recently spent two weeks in Panama studying Spanish at Casco Antiguo Spanish School. While I could have stayed at a tourist hotel in Casco Viejo, I decided to experience a complete immersion in Panama. As such, I stayed at Jamraka Homestay, an option among many included on the school’s website for places to stay.
The Jamraka Homestay, located in between Casco Viejo and the causeway which was great for sunset walks from the yacht club to the Biomuseo, is operated by Cachy and her son Ciro, and is a short $3 Uber ride away from the school. Having said that, it is best to avoid the evening rush hour from 4pm to 7pm.STAY AT A HOME
