Panama City Travel Guide

Car Travel

Driving a car in Panama City is not an undertaking for the meek, but renting a car is an excellent way to explore the surrounding countryside. Rentals usually cost $40 to $50 per day, whereas four-wheel-drive vehicles cost $60 to $90. All the big car-rental companies offer GPS rentals, and have offices downtown and at the airports.
