Airports in Panama
A short drive from Panama City is one of the busiest airports in Central America. Tocumen International Airport is the main entry point to holidaymakers flying to Panama. The airport has a modest selection of shops and restaurants and is well serviced by taxis waiting to transport passengers to their hotels.
With two VIP lounges, the recently revamped Tocumen
International Airport is a great airport to use when travelling to
Central America, or as a stopover on the way to South
The airport lies 17 miles (27km) from Panama City.
Getting to the city
The only public transport into Panama City is provided by minivans dubbed 'Taxi de Turismo', which can be booked from the Information Booth in the arrivals hall. The fare is US$15, and transfer time is about half an hour. Regular taxis also operate day and night at fixed prices depending on the number of passengers, but are not metered. The taxi rank is outside the arrivals area.
