Where should I land if going to David/Boquete?

E-mail Print PDF

 A reader asked where she should land if she was going to David or Boquete:

Dear Marianne,

     First, Panama City (PTY) is the ONLY place international flights land - if you choose, you can take a cab into the city, across town ($30 cab ride) to the Allbrook Airport and take another flight to David ($148) - but not at 1 a.m. Or you can take a bus to David ($15 one way) from the National Bus Terminal across form the Allbrook Mall.  

     It is a 6 - 7 hour trip by bus to David/Boquete.  That is one of the draw-backs of Boquete/David - although there has been talk of expanding the airport to permit direct flights from Canada to David sometime in the future - I wouldn't hold my breath.


     Yes, Panama City is still bustling at 1 a.m. The bars are open until 5 a.m. I have been told (I can't stay awake much past  9 or 10 P.M.)
     Make your hotel reservation in advance, and some hotels will arrange to pick you up at the airport. 
     Check air transat, west jet, and sunwing for cheap flights, also for last minute tickets.
