lo mejor de Panamá
Lo mejor de Panamá es su diversidad. En cinco días se puede visitar playas, montañas, ciudades mordenas y ruinas históricas.
Is it necessary to write las playas, las montañas, etc? Also how can I use the subjunctive in this case? As you CAN visit all these days but you might not. Help!
En cinco días se puede visitar playas, montañas, ciudades mordenas y ruinas históricas.
Should it not be "En cinco días se puedeN visitar..." instead of puede?
I was about to write, Yep! It does need to be "pueden", but then Samdie said:
Nope. "se puede" (impersonal construction) "one can visit"
Now I am not as certain, but I still lean toward "se pueden". Even though it is the impersonal construction, and in English we might say "one can visit", I still think in Spanish the verb should agree with the plural nouns that follow. However Samdie may be right. Hmmm...
Es correcto.Don't need to use (here) the article.It gives a different rythm to the sentence (like more...i don't know, but different rythm).
If you wish to introduce the subjunctive, one way would be to begin with an impersonal clause: Es possible que o Es dudoso que which would require the subjunctive in the dependent clause.
My vote is to used the definite articles. Sounds more natural to me using them, because we are speaking not of just any beaches, but specific ones. (las de Panamá). However, if you don't mean to refer to Panamanian beaches, but just beaches in general, don't used the definite article.
I'm still wrestling with Lo mejor or la mejor (diversidad).
Welcome to the forum. Are you referring to not using the article as we often do in English? (the beaches, mountains, cities.......)I'm afraid I can't answer that for you but someone will. However, I will agree with you about doing it in 5 days. I love Panama and 5 days just isn't enough.
