Halloween offers the perfect excuse to dress up and go out to have fun. Many already have their agenda set up for an unforgettable Halloween night, but if you haven’t decided which are the best places to party, The Visitor recommends the following venues:
At the Hard Rock Panama the party starts on Friday, October 30, and ends on Sunday, November 1, for a true “Hallo Weekend”. There will be seven parties with different themes to suit all tastes. Each party has a different cost, but you can book a double room for $200 per person, which includes free access to all the venues plus a bottle of Chivas Regal. For more information call 380-1111, Option 3.
Saturday night will not be exclusively dedicated to mischief, because at the Riu Plaza Hotel there is a Halloween Tropical Dance from 9 p.m.where you can experience the rhythms of salsa, merengue, son and cumbia, performed by the Melodic and K-Shamba. Tickets on sale at panatickets.com
If you prefer to frolic at sea, the Halloween Boat Party is the perfect choice. You will enjoy electronic music and a cruise around Panama Bay. The celebrations begin at La Playita de Amador, on Saturday October 31 at 10 p.m. and at midnight the boat will sail around the bay. Music will be provided by DJs Steve Bug, K.E.E.N.E., Gio Vellojín, George Olmos and DJ Kimao. Price is $25. More information Facebook.com/Late-Night-Music
The word “Halloween” is a contraction of “All Hallow’s Eve” which means “Eve of All Saints”, because some feel that this celebration has its origin in the Christian holy day of All Saints (Nov. 1 ).
Costumes are a must at the Wild Tropical Halloween party in Havana Panama in Casco Antiguo, otherwise you’ll pay a penance to enter. This terrifying and wild party begins at 10 p.m. with live music and a costume contest organized by the EsFiebre group. Ladies enter free until midnight and gentlemen pay $5
The best costumes will receive prizes on Halloween night at the Candela Restaurant in the Ocean Sun Casino. First place will get a cash prize of $ 750, the second and third place $ 500 and $ 250 respectively. The party starts at 9 p.m. on Saturday October 31.
