The currency in Panama is the Peso. You can pay with your debit or credit card at many places and the most convenient way to obtain cash is to use your ATM card at local banks. We recommend bringing an extra credit card and informing your financial institutions of your travel plans before leaving the country.
We suggest bringing a variety of comfortable, lightweight clothing that can be layered to save space in your suitcase and give you more options for how to dress. Sturdy walking shoes are important.

A convenient option is to prepay your tips before your departure.
