If you want to experience everything that the "Miami of the South" has to offer, checking out flights to Panama City is first in order. This large, multicultural metropolis serves as the country's capital as well as its urban and economic hub. Of course, if you're craving the outdoors, lush rain forests are just a day trip away. Join the multitude landing at the Tocumen International Airport (PTY) and you'll be right at the gateway of your Central American adventure.
Arriving on one of Panama City flights will place you 17 kilometers east of downtown. Thus, staying in one of the hotels close to Tocumen International will conveniently put you a couple minutes' drive away from major tourist destinations, especially if you go via the South Corridor toll road. Public buses can take you from the airport to central Panama, where you can immerse yourself in its rich history, take in the scenic view of the harbor, or explore the country's claim to fame -- the Panama Canal. For travelers who are pressed for time, there's a taxi stand near the exit area of the airport. Taxis in Panama City don't have a meter; instead, fares are set by authorities based on your destination. If you are on a budget, you can also opt for a shared taxi ride. In addition, some hotels provide shuttle services for their guests.
