Before you go

Pack like a Pro

Like any tropical destination, there are a few things you should have in your suitcase:

  • Lavender (natural mosquito repellent)
  • Hand sanitizer
  • Sunglasses
  • Sunscreen
  • Aloe lotion
  • Flip flops
  • Swimsuits
  • Advil (ibuprofen)
  • Electrolyte powder (hydration is key)
  • Copies of your travel insurance
  • A copy of your passport

Currency

Panama uses the US dollar as its currency. Officially, it’s called balboa, but it’s exactly the same bill. You can call it the dólar or balboa -- both work!
