Panama gay group tourThe country of Panama boasts exotic tropical rainforests, cool gorgeous mountain refuges, Caribbean beaches, many Indian cultures, a pretty Miami-style capital city, historic venues (Columbus and Balboa both came to Panama), adventure, and one of the world’s engineering marvels: The Panama Canal. Panama is one of the best places in the world for ecotourism today, positioned as a narrow land bridge connecting two continents and several diverse and pristine rainforest preserves. It has a wide selection of beaches, with a long twisting coast and hundreds of islands on both the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans.

Trip Notes

Entry Requirements
Citizens of the U.S., Great Britain, Canada and Australia only need a passport, valid for up to six months, and a tourist card. The tourist card costs $5 and is usually sold to you by your airline when you check in. You can purchase your card on your arrival in Panama from the immigration authorities.

Immunizations and Health
No immunizations are currently required for travel to Panama, but it is wise to have your inoculations up-to-date. Is your tetanus booster current?

Exit Requirements
Some airlines include the cost of departure tax is $40 U.S., but most airlines include that cost within the price of the airline ticket. If your airline does not include this fee, you will need to pay it prior to your departure.

Making Travel Arrangements to Manila
On this tour, international airfare is NOT included. You will need to get your international air to/from Panama City. You will need to arrive in Panama City by 4:00 pm on Friday, February 2, 2018. Early morning departure is from Panama City on Sunday, February 11, 2018. Two internal flights within Panama are included in the price of this trip.

What to Bring
This tour occurs during Panama’s dry season, but there still remains the possibility of a brief rain shower. Being close to the Equator, Panama’s average daily temperatures remain remarkably constant throughout the year, between 70 and 90 degrees in the lowlands areas where we will be traveling. Pack accordingly, but try to limit yourself to two small suitcases. Electric current is variable from place to place within the country, either 110 volts, same as in the U.S., with standard plugs and outlets or 220 volts similar to Europe. Pack all medications in a carry-on bag and leave expensive jewelry home!

Money Matters
Panama uses the US dollar as its currency. The official name for it is the balboa, but it is exactly the same bill. Panamanian coins are of the same value, size and metal as US coins; both are used. In most of Central America, US dollars are the only currency exchanged. In Panama City, however, you can exchange currencies from almost anywhere in the world at a casa de cambio, due to the city’s large international offshore banking industry.

Tipping in Panama
Tipping is not obligatory in Panama, but it is recommended for good service. You can tip some small change, or around 10% of the bill if you’re feeling affluent, in fancier restaurants; in small cafes and more casual places, tipping is not necessary. Haggling over prices is not the general custom in Panama. We will offer a group tip to guides and drivers, and more details will be provided before departure.
