How can I reach Panama?

There are direct flights to Panama City from 10 cities in the U.S.; a flight from Miami takes 3 hours. From Costa Rica (San José) you can also take flights or travel in bus, but be advised that the border crossing involves rigorous procedures. 

Another way to get to Panama is by driving along the Pan-American Highway from the United States. Take into consideration that this trip can last days and you must understand Spanish to know which routes will lead you to your destination.

Taking a cruise is an easy option to access the country, since passengers are allowed to get off the boat and explore without any special permission. Given that the destination is a part of the package sold, the agencies take care of the procedures and facilitate the tourist experience.
