Balboa Inn: Love the exotic murals
This is not a gay/lesbian B&B per se, but Thorwald, the owner, is originally from the Netherlands and has all the openness and tolerance that country offers.

The rooms were recently renovated and painted with gorgeous murals of jungle scenes, birds, butterflies, palm trees, Spanish street scenes, etc. - they add a wonderful ambience to the whole place.

Our flight came in at around 2am and the staff made special arrangements for us to check in at that hour.

Panama City can be a bit daunting with its chaotic traffic and Roman Catholic views, but this would be a great place to use as a home base to explore it all.
