Compared to most of Latin America, the infrastructure in Panama is well-developed with decent roads and public transit.
To travel to Panama, you will need a passport. While in-country, it is best to have either your passport or a photocopy of your passport and visa stamp page with you at all times. We generally advise folks to pack several photocopies of their passport as well as one additional form of identification.
Please check with your airline for baggage restrictions. You may incur additional fees for larger bags (such as paddle bags, surfboards, etc.) as well as for overweight bags. In addition, the local in-country airline, AirPanama, limits bags to 25 pounds per person for checked baggage.
If you have traveled abroad in the past, you most likely purchased travel insurance, which we highly recommend. If you need more information, check out the company that we use: www.travelex-insurance.com.
Food here is generally safe to eat and tap water is safe to drink in most places. If you’re unsure, don’t hesitate to ask and if you’re still apprehensive, buy bottled water and rinse your fruits and vegetables before eating them.
