🈯 Language and Culture
There are no restrictions on what you should wear, and the language barrier is not much of a problem since you can always find someone who speaks English. But it is better to learn a little Spanish and get to know the culture before you travel.
Before you travel, you better book everything because sometimes you may not get what you want. But when booking a hotel or reserving a restaurant, always double-check because there are rare occasions when people had reservation problems with Panama, which are not becoming less frequent.
💸 Budget Travelers
If you do not want to spend a lot of money, travel during the wet season. The prices for accommodations in the wet season are not much different, but generally, considering everything, it can get cheaper.
Panama is a clean and safe country. It would be best if you mostly worried about taxi scams and such, or the usual pickpocketing, which is always possible, but there are no major safety concerns.
🛏️ Same-Sex Couples (LGBTQ)
Although same-sex relations are not illegal in Panama, the people still have some intolerance in the more traditional areas. They will not ask questions, but it is best to keep such things quiet while among some of the locals. This is improving every day, but it is still not in an ideal state.
🚌 Stick to the Buses
Taxies are always fine, but you may find a scam riding a taxi, but you do not see such problems with a bust. Other than that, if you get the timings right, a bus can take you anywhere and at a very low price.
