We left the fresh mountain air of Quito, Ecuador and headed North by airplane to Central America landing in Panama City, Panama. To avoid the onslaught of the taxi drivers and haggling wars we went with an Uber ride. Aside from needing WIFI to access the Uber app, which meant staying close to the terminal, it worked like a charm.
I don’t know why we didn’t like Buenos Aires more? Perhaps because of our budget, concerns over safety, or it was just too big and impersonal. We arrived on the 7th of December from the Cruise ship and made our way to our first hotel the Sheraton Liberador. It was a nice hotel although the elevators never seemed to work properly and getting service in the lounge was like pulling teeth. On the plus side, we received two bottles of red wine for being platinum members.
