Health

Tap water is not safe to drink outside the capital without being boiled, filtered or chemically disinfected, and food should be eaten peeled, cooked and piping hot. Medical facilities are good in Panama City, but less in smaller cities. Quality control of pharmaceuticals in Panama is inadequate, so travellers are advised to bring a sufficient supply of their own medications from home.

Money

MasterCard and Visa are the most commonly used, but American Express and Diners Club are also accepted. Concerning travellers cheques to avoid additional exchange rate charges, visitors are advised to take traveller's cheques in US Dollars.

Transportation

It is well organized, since extensive bus and minibus services run in Panama City. There is a flat fare with coin-operated turnstiles at the entrances of most buses.

Phoning

Internet cafes exist in main urban areas. Roaming agreements exist with international mobile phone companies. Coverage is good.
