Samantha's Romantic travel tips- Head to Panama

When it comes to a romantic vacation, it's crucial to pick a place that has the right mix of hotels, fun activities and places for private time together. Panama is that kind of place.
I am a professional matchmaker and here's what I know about romance in Panama...
     1. Panama is a direct flight from many major US cities, which makes it a very desirable travel destination. Many of the major airlines fly there direct. Copa Air, part of the Continental family, is the official airline of the country and flies there many times a day. 
      2. Panama City is a great vacation destination because you can literally experience city, beach and countryside/adventure all within 2 hours of the city center. 
3.  If you want a city hotel with a killer romantic view of the Panama Bay, I found the Miramar hotel to be terrific; it is the best place to stay in the financial area of Panama. Make sure to ask for a room with a water view and for the Club floor so you can have access to the Club lounge and a private pool, which is never crowded. From the pool deck, you get a straight shot view of the Bay which truthfully rivals views in some of the best cities in the world.
4. If you want a City Hotel with a trendy feel, the recently opened ManRey is the choice for you.

Samantha's Valentine's Day tip--- What a girl likes

On Valentine's Day, don't fool yourself into thinking that one main gift is enough. Girls like a lot of little things. You need to take the time to go buy her little corny, waste of money things. Send flowers, buy chocolates, buy a stuffed sweetheart bear, get her 5 cards. Do it all or do a lot of it because this is what she likes and this is what she is expecting today!
