Arriving at the airport we recommend that you will choose a yellow taxi to carry you into the city. The fare is about $ 25. If you have not booked your hotel, you can choose between these our two proposals: Eurotel Via Espana ($ 50 for the room), or theHotel Venezia in Av. Peru between calle 36737 (room 38 dollars).

Panama City is definitely a city of contrasts that is well worth visiting. A real seaport where until a few years ago the major venture capitalists had seats “offshore” of their corporations. Today everything is changing in Panama but you can still do the business and we can help out. More information: citizenship and business in Panama.
