    We are just arguing about words.

    If, beside coinage, one can show any paper currency in actual circulation today other than the greenback, I will gladly retract and agree that the Balboa is it.

    Till then.

    Mellow.

    Likely the currency story goes back to the end of the War of Thousand Days when the Colombian peso depreciated about 30 times against the pound sterling.

The coins are kind of a pain in the ass because you end up with them in your pockets back in the US if you are not vigilant. It seems like Ecuador also has their own coins. I seem to remember that. I don't know about El Salvador. I haven't been there yet, although I should get there early next year. Ecuador started using the dollar before El Salvador did, I know that. Before that Ecuador had the 'sucre. ' The money they print in The Bahamas is a lot prettier and more colorful than boring US dollars. They just use the bills interchangeably in that country, like they did in Argentina before their peso collapsed.

    The US dollar is not the only borrowed currency in use; for example, Montenegro is not in the EU or the ECU, but they have adopted the euro as their own.
    El Salvador and Ecuador both use the One Dollar US Coins. Used to be called Susan be Anthony's however I am not sure what they are called now.

    The Banks do not carry US One Dollar Bills but, there are some circulated from tourists or from years ago when they were used instead of the coins.

    Actually when you check out, the clerk pulls out your folio from the drawer and next time if you look carefully, you will see the copies of the Cedulas of your guest in your folio.

    Mine had 3 or 4 copies of Cedulas attached which made bulk of my folio. However this was before the 'upgrade' fee was introduced. It was rather little embarrassing as that cute dark skinned 20 something old girl with long black hair was checking me out (checking out as in Check out of the hotel) and my folio with attached Cedulas laid there on counter for good few minutes haha.

I asked outright (pretending I didn't know what the charge was for) what the charge was for and the front desk clerk just casually mentioned. Oh, you must have had a guest up in your room 2 times during your stay?

    The US dollar has been legal tender ever since the US stole Panamá from Colombia. Panamanian coins have indeed been minted in the US, as well as by other foreign countries and even private businesses, which is certainly unusual. Panamanian coins currently have and usually have had the exact same size and metal composition as US coins. However, at various times Panamá has minted denominations that were never used in the US, such as 1. 25 centísimos and 2. 50 centísimos. That latter coins was the smallest coin ever struck by the US mint.

    Where it gets really weird is Cambodia. They use the US dollar, but also produce their own banknotes. But, the Cambodian bank notes are worth so little that they function like coins for making small change. The notes are also flimsy and since it's so hot and humid, disintegrate easily. So every Cambodian has his or her carefully maintained Ziploc baggie for keeping their bank notes intact. Ecuador, El Salvador, and The Bahamas also use the US dollar, although The Bahamas also prints its own notes and coins that circulate alongside the US dollar.

    This is a silly debate. The Balboa and the Dollar are both official currencies in Panama and can be used interchangeably without any eyebrows being raised ever. And when you're in Panama, that's all you need to know!

    This got me interested. My cheques say BALBOAS, with "USA DOLARES" below in smaller letters. The deposit slips have only "US $". No wonder people are confused. (But you're correct of course.).

    The USD is the national currency, although it is called Balboa sometimes. They have their own coins, although I believe those are also minted in the USA.

What I like about that place is the table service that they provide. You have your own personalized waitress at your beck and call. I tipped her generously as she was really great. No rooms onsite. Stayed at the Hyatt ($80 per night) which is 1 1/2 blocks away walking distance.
    Thank you fellas. I've heard only good things about Habanos. I thought it was a casa where you walk in and they sit you down and introduce them to you via a line up. LOL.
