While there are many, many hotels in Panama City, sometimes you just want a personal reference.  Here are some hotels that I think you may like.

Hotel Marriott - Nice hotel next to new mall with food court and good shopping.

Plaza Paitilla Inn - Near shopping malls and Bay of Panama.

Sevilla Suites - Located in the heart of the commercial and financial center.

Riande - Near the international airport - not very close to city.

Hotel Via Espana - Only 20 minutes from the Tocumen International Airport.

Las Vegas Hotel Suites - Basic but well located and affordable.

Hotel Milan - Very popular hotel with residents visiting the city.

Rental Cars

I always recommend that if you really want to see the area you should rent a car during your stay.  There are many taxis around Boquete but they do not offer you the leisurely view of the areas that one would appreciate if evaluating the area for a potential new home.

Here are some rental car sites to consider:

Thrifty Car Rental - David

National Car Rental


I also recommend that you purchase the insurance that is offered for both liability and physical damage.  Any insurance that you may normally use in your home country may not work the same here and if there is an accident you want to be sure you are fully covered.
