Home Panama First Impressions Directions from Tocumen airport

Directions from Tocumen airport

E-mail Print PDF

 This just came in, asking directions from the airport. Roberto

Hi Rob,

Can you email directions from Tocumen airport to Santa Clara.  I know the way once I get onto the pan american but getting out of the airport can be a little confusing.



A cab will cost $25 from the airport to Panama City - it costs $30 to get to the airport, but only $25 to get back, for some reason. There is a public bus. The bus

shelter is a bit of a walk from the terminal to the highway, but the bus is only 20 cents.

A cab to Santa Clara will cost $100. It is 113 kilometers, and takes one and a half hours, if you don't speed. 

When driving, I always take the Corridor Sur (South Corridor), a toll route along the water (two toll booths $1.25 and $1.40).

Stay on it all the way to Balboa Avenue (main drag along the harbor) and exit left from Balboa onto the ramp towards Aveninda de Martyr's (Avenue of the

Martyrs) and take it all the way to Puente de las Americas (Bridge of the Americas) . No turns - stay on the highway for 113 kilometers.
