Public buses are readily available throughout Panama but I’ve only taken the bus to Panama City one time because my daughter’s flight was cancelled and she needed to get to Panama City to catch an international flight. My cost, with a Pensionado discount, was $10.60 to take the bus from David to Panama City. A few times, I’ve also taken the community buses to Boquete for $1. It’s only $1.75 to take the bus from Boquete to David, which is the second largest city in Panama.
Because I have limited knowledge about taking the buses in Panama, I asked my friend Elaine Hayes to write about here experiences. Elaine loves to take the bus. Here’s her article about Taking a Bus in Panama.
Taking the bus all around Panama is a lot easier that you think. And you will be surprised to find that once you get the hang of it, it just might be your preferred method for travel!
Panama has one of the easiest and efficient bus systems in the America’s. All it takes it a few dollars, and a little bit of bravery in the beginning, and it will open up a whole new way to travel independently.
Let’s first begin our journey at Albrook Bus Station in Panama City. Albrook is a huge area that has its own airport, the main bus station for all of Panama, and the largest mall in all of the Americas. From here, it can get you started to go anywhere in the country.
Since 2010, we’ve been offering Panama Relocation Tours and our monthly Q & A Conference calls. In August we completed our 108th Panama Relocation Tour! The September 2019 Q & A Conference Call was scheduled to be about one hour but there were so many people who had waited and waited to ask their question the call extended to two full hours to give me time to answer every single question. There was no way I was going to end the call at one hour with so many people still waiting in line to ask their question.
It’s a big decision to relocate to Panama and we know it helps to get answers to at least some of your questions before you sign up for a Panama Relocation Tour to explore Panama in person and learn even more.
These are some of the comments we received after the call:
~ OMG! Jackie, Jackie, Jackie! You, my dear, have the patience of Jobe! I was on the entire two hour conference call tonight. I found it quite informative, but I was extremely impressed with how well you handled the callers. It amazes me the difficulty some callers have in formulating a simple question, but, you never wavered! You are amazing! Although I have never met you, I have the utmost confidence in you and your organization. I spoke with Melissa by phone this week and she too, was perfection. I can not wait for my tour November 29th! I have also lured two other people to join me. I look forward to meeting you all!!
There’s a process, but it’s easy to bring your fur babies with you when you move to Panama. Each airline has different pet policies. Find the airline that has the most friendly pet policy for your type pet then book your flight and your pets flight at least 2-3 months in advance. Then, make sure your pet is up to day on their vaccinations. Thirty days before you move to Panama, you will need to get an international health certificate issued by a vet who is certified to issue them. The next step is getting the health certificate authenticated by the agriculture department then another authentication from the Panama Consulate in your country. Simultaneously, you’ll need to get authorization to bring your pets in to Panama and get a home quarantine certificate. Don’t worry, during a Panama Relocation Tours we will give you all the details about reliable contacts who can help with the entire process of getting your pets in to Panama in the most affordable and safe way. It’s approximately $500 – $600 per pet to bring them in to Panama. This price includes airfare, vet certifications, and authentications in both countries. It’s a simple process to bring your pets in to Panama. There is no need to hire a pet relocation company who will charge about $3000 per pet.
PET CARE IN PANAMA
Once your pets get to Panama, now what? What kind of care can you expect? What food is available? Will you be able to still spoil your little prince or princess in the matter that they are accustomed? The answer is absolutely!
Panama has veterinarians that are as highly trained as they are in the country where you originate. Some vets speak perfect English but some don’t. You can get recommendations from fellow expats about which vet they use. All of the vets here that I have encountered are not only knowledgeable but have the latest technological equipment and services available. So if you are bringing your little fur kids in for an annual checkup, or a more serious procedure, you can rest assured that “Sir Barksalot” or “Miss Whiskers” will get the best possible care in Panama!
