"Meet People" Portobelo Things to Do Tip by travelmamiATL

Portobelo Things to Do: 7 reviews and 7 photos

The people in Portobelo are SUPER friendly and are always down to buy a stranger a beer. If you just visit the church and the ruins and leave you've really missed out on a great opportunity to make friends. 5 minutes in the plaza and you can strike up a conversation with a local. We met so many folks we ended up staying and hanging out all day. If you can speak a little spanish, a "buenas" and a smile goes a long way. Stop someone on the road with a question and next thing you know you may be at someone's dinner table for a meal!

Address: La Plaza
Directions: Smack dab in the middle of town
