First morning of my arrival, the sun was up at the same time as I was!
Hotel Ancón, have seen better days (and probably also worse), but there are no complains from me. Any place with warm ocean, beautiful beach and 28 C in December, sounds to me better then December at home!
Ancón is an older-style hotel build by Russian military around 1980-- a large Soviet block of concrete plunked down on the sand. Newer wing was added in 1995. The hotel is being slowly renovated, with the emphasis on slowly!! ;-)
