Default Panama (the country)

Hi all,

I'm new to metal detecting and would love to find a friend to check out some sites in the country of Panama (NOT the Panama in Florida), where I live. I am particularly interested in searching along the old "camino de cruces" trail which Sir Henry Morgan crossed to sack the old city of Panama in 1671. The trail is still intact and I imagine hasn't been explored much (if at all).

Anyway, if you are located in Panama, please leave some contact details.

Cheers,

Frank

Welcome from the Yucatan! Gotta love the colonial times, tons of history there for you! HH!

Thanks for the welcome, Zee. Hopefully I'll find a detecting buddy in Panama through this forum.

I live just north of you in Costa Rica and have a hunting buddy up here. If you ever end up around San Jose shoot me a PM and next time I am around David Panama I will do the same and shoot you a PM. Good luck finding a hunting buddy.

Wow a lot of panama friends I see... I am in costa rica, and for now other than kaliguy and me it seems that metal detecting in this country is not practiced.

Default panama country

hello to you folks in Costa Rica, guess you have the whole country to yourself. I'm curious about laws, regarding recovery of treasure, I know certain items, relating to ancient indian, artifacts, and gold statues, of animals etc. are forbidden to keep. Also need to be careful of bandits who want your machine, or what they think you have for treasure.
