Planning your trip to Panama:
Ways to travel within Panama
Travelling around Panama
Panama is reckoned to have the best air network of any country in Latin America. You can reach most parts of the country easily by air from Panama City.
Roads are generally pretty good too, though the topography of the country can make for some long journeys.
There are three sensible options for getting about in Panama by road, which we can arrange for you:
- Private guided touring An English-speaking guide who will usually also be your driver, accompanies you between destinations and on excursions in each place. You can sit back and relax while you travel, gain some real local insight, and make the most of your time.
- Private transfers An experienced local driver (not necessarily English-speaking) collects you from your hotel and transfers you to your next destination. There are no travel worries, it is a private service, and you have your independence at each location. Pick up times can be adjusted to suit you.
- Self-drive A hire car is a great way of enjoying Panama. The roads are very good but navigation is not always straightforward and English is not commonly spoken so you need to feel comfortable if you choose this option.
Whatever your mode of transport, we can pre-book local excursions to maximise your time in the area.
