The newly widened Panama Canal represents only one type of transportation found in Panama. There is also the modern underground subway system, an ever-expanding and updated International airport with over 75 daily direct flights world-wide, a smaller regional airport, air conditioned public buses with panoramic windows, a fleet of taxis and even the ability to hail a helicopter via Uber. You can live well in Panama without a vehicle.
A Shopping Mecca
It used to be people hopped a plane to Miami for a little retail therapy but now everyone is flocking to Panama City to shop. High-end retailers such as Gucci, Burberry, Fendi, Chanel and Cartier dot the malls as well as outlet stores and even a Target. If you can’t find it in Panama, you probably don’t need it!
Opportunities For Giving Back
Panama is a country full of contradictions. You’ll find plenty of first-world living as well as indigenous citizens and the poor living in poverty. Everyone is welcomed to give back, through dozens of NGOs and local groups helping to educate, house orphans, provide basics to the food insecure, rescue and spay the stray dogs and cats and teach English as a second language. Panamanians and expats welcome everyone to join in the spirit of giving back!
