  1. Road Conditions In Panama: If you have never driven in Central America be aware that it can be overwhelming at first. First off, many of the vehicles on the roads are not very well maintained. This can make driving a little hazardous. You will also note that Panamanians seem to be adverse to the proper use of brakes, turn signals and following the rules of the road. This means you must be vigilant when driving or as a pedestrian along the side of a road.
  2. By Plane:Your first stop will be in Panama City at the Tocumen International Airport. Numerous carriers from around the world have direct flights into Panama City so travelling to Panama will not present any difficulty. As always shop around for the best flight.
  3. Taxi Service:In a town of any size you can find a taxi. In Panama City they are everywhere. As such, finding one is not a problem. Be aware of the fact that a taxi meter is not typically used so you must negotiate a price prior to leaving. Most locations in Panama City by taxi should not cost more than $4-5.
  4. Buses: On a day by day basis buses are your best and cheapest way to get around Panama City and Panama in general. The cost is very inexpensive and buses run throughout the city and the country on a regular basis.
  5. Boats: Are the principal mode of transportation in several parts of Panama, particularly in the San Blás and Bocas del Toro archipelagos. Kuna merchant vessels carry cargo and passengers along the San Blás coast, between Colón and Puerto Obaldía. Be warned that occasionally these boats are used to traffic narcotics. Travel by these often dangerously overloaded boats is neither comfortable nor safe therefore hiring a local boatman is a wiser option. Cars can also be rented in Panama City and in David.
