Hotels in Panama City |Flight Info | Car Rentals | Hotels
When you come to Boquete from outside the country you
will fly into Tocumen Airport in Panama City. You will need
to transfer to Allbrook Airport for the one-hour flight
to the city of David, near the Costa Rican border. Allow
60 minutes taxi driving time from one airport to the other.
The last flight daily to David leaves at 5pm and you need
to be there at 4pm. If your flight does not come in early
enough to make this connection you will need to stay a night
in Panama City and catch a morning flight. This may give
you an opportunity to explore a bit of the city.
We highly recommend Tammy Liu with Panoramic Panama
for your in-country travel connections. They have many discounts
available for hotels, car rentals and tours. They are very
professional and will respond to your requests promptly.
They arrange all your transfers, hotel reservations, internal
flight tickets, car hire and any tours.
The benefit of working with "Panoramic Panama"
is that they can take care of any last minute changes for
you and being local they have knowledge of which hotels
and tours are best suited for your needs and budget.
All they need to know are your arrival and departure flight
details, what hotel price range you would like, what is
your in-country destination and they will take care of all
the arrangements. It will save you time and hassle. You
don't need to worry about speaking the language. Panoramic
Panama offers you an easy one-stop shopping, leaving you
stress free for your trip, especially if this is your first
visit to Panama.
They have recently opened their own B&B for customers
in the canal zone Quarry Heights, near Albrook Airport and
it out. (click link)
They also have rooms and apartments for daily rental. Stay there
for the night, then in the morning, straight to Albrook Airport for
the next leg of the journey.
