Flying To Panama

If you are coming to Panama for business or pleasure you will likely fly into and out of Tocumen International Airport. Tocumen is fifteen miles from downtown Panama City, Panama. This international airport receives more passenger traffic than any other in Central America. The 10,000 foot long main runway at Tocumen connects passengers to North, South and Central America, the Caribbean, and Europe. International carriers using Tocumen include American, Avianca, Copa, Delta, Iberia, KLM, and United. Copa is the Panama flag carrier
with direct flights to Chicago - O’Hare, Houston, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Miami, Newark, Orlando, Toronto-Pearson, and Washington – Dulles in North America.
Copa’s more than sixty destinations include, in the Caribbean and South America, Havana, Buenos Aires-Ezeiza, Cancun, Mexico City, Rio de Janeiro-Galeão, Cali, Medellín-Córdova, Bogotá, and Quito.
As such, flying to Panama is possible via a large number of carriers. Taxis are plentiful if you do not have a ride arranged. Don’t be surprised if the taxi driver asks for $50 to take you into the city, perhaps more if you name a hotel that you are going to. If you are booking a vacation through a travel agency try to get the connection to the hotel or other destination set up in advance. ($50 is too much. $30 to $40 will get a taxi driver to come to your apartment in El Centro, pick you up, take you to the airport, pick up your friend who has just arrived, and take all of you to your destination in the city. However, it does help a lot to speak Spanish when negotiating.)
Business Travelers Flying to Panama
Nearly six million passengers are flying to Panama or pass through Tocumen yearly. Many pass on through as Tocumen is a major hub airport for Latin America. However, the bulk of those arriving and departing spend time in the city. Business travelers find all of the amenities that they need in the upscale hotels in the city. Those who are interested in doing business in Panama, find the government to be business friendly. Panama residency is easy to obtain and foreigners can own and operate businesses and own property in Panama. If you are flying to Panama to look at property be aware that there can be fantastic bargains in Panama Repossessed Mortgages in the city and in the interior. Profiting in Panama is entirely possible on a number of fronts. Flying to Panama and taking a look is often the best way to start.
Flying to Panama for Pleasure
Even if you are coming to Panama to scout out opportunities for investing in Latin America, business and pleasure are not mutually exclusive in the city or the country of Panama. The Panama Canal is a must see. Take a taxi to the Miraflores Locks visitor center, watch the big ships pass while you have lunch in the modern visitor center restaurant.
