Top tips for renting a car in Panama City

  • One of the main advantages to having a car during your time in Panama City is that it opens up the countryside for easy exploration. There are a number of spectacular spots that are just perfect as day trips from Panama City. Some of these spots include Cajones de Chame, which is 90 km (56 miles) away from the city, and Laguna de San Carlos, which is 110 km (68 miles) away.
  • If you’re flying in, you’ll probably want to pick up your rental car from the airport so you can start your vacation right away. If your flight is arriving at Tocumen International Airport, then you will find the rental car offices in the airport’s Arrivals Hall.
