TBH if not for Kosher food, Costa Rica ranks a lot higher on my list.

I have heard that from many people but the kosher food in Panama was one of the biggest highlights of the trip!

It really boils down to how much food is part of determining a destination, personally for me it only enhances a trip, but isn't a big part of the equation.

The fried tilapia was cute just keep in mind that unless a Jew is involved in the cooking itís not quite kosher (bishul akum).

My husband started the cooking process for the fish and then the women took over.

Am jealous. In a good way of course, as Panama has been on my short list for a while.

I heard that Panama is quite cheap relatively speaking. May I ask approx how much your week in paradise cost (excluding flight/hotel)?

What is this price match guarantee that allowed $61/day? When I looked online the cost was around $150/night.

The tours are not cheap and the food is pretty average priced. The hotels and Uber rides are super cheap.
Marriott has a price match program that if you book a room with one of their hotels and then find a cheaper hotel within a certain timeframe they will match that price and give an additional 25% off. That is how I got it for $61/night.
