You do not need any vaccinations before coming to Panana. During the Panama Relocation Tour, we will not travel to any jungle areas so you will not need to get any vaccinations. The CDC does recommend certain shots when traveling to Panama but I don’t know anyone who has moved her or visited here who has gotten them. The side effects of any vaccination can be worse that any illness you might get in Panama
If we were going to be hiking in the Darien Jungle, I would advise getting vaccinations. But we will not be anywhere near there.
In the San Blas area of the Caribbean Sea there have been some cases of the Zika Virus. The no other area of Panama has reported any cases.
Panama uses the same electrical outlets and the US and Canada, 110 volts. If you are coming from Europe you may need a converter. If you use any medical devices, like a C-Pap machine, you should being an extension cord.
All the hotels where we stay have hair dryers in the room, except one hotel which has them available at the front desk if you need one.
