Panama What to Pack

  • Don't forget your bins

    Do as I say not as I light It depends on when and where you plan to go but as a general rule, loose fitting cotton clothing is the most practical. Bring a rain poncho if you are going to the forests, and a sweatshirt or sweater if you are going to the mountains. Bring a pair of good walking shoes. A sun hat and an umbrella. Don't...

  • Pack a Positive Attitude!!

    We ordered luggage from High Sierra for this trip. They have a cool line of luggage that is very versatile. The main pack has a lot of storage and has a zip-off front compartment that magically transforms into a daypack. You can roll the luggage, or unzip the back of the main compartment and you can wear the whole thing as a backpack to free up...

  • UMBRELLAS and bugspray

    it rains a lot in the Northern hemisphere's summer(June July August) which is of course panama's winter. This mostly means that in between being upwards of 90 degrees farenheit, it rains for an hour or so. However, up in the mountains, like near David, Volcan and my little town of Rio Sereno, it doesn't get quite as hot so the rain is a little...

  • Pack jeans!

    Just bring a carry on. Clothes are sooooo cheap here. T shirts $3 jeans $5 if you need anything just buy it. You can get everything here. Relax Bring long pants to wear out at night. They are more conservative and frown down on short skirts and shorts.

  • Weather to expect...(Humid).

    The high season is mid December-mid April, when it rains the least. Panama, except for the highlands, is nearly always hot and humid (days in the 80s-90s F/28-37 C and nights not much cooler). With the aid of air-conditioning and sea breezes, Panama can be enjoyed all year, though you should expect it to rain an inch a day during the May-November...

  • Really dont forget the Mosquito...

    Comfortable walking or hiking shoes Sandals Cap or hat Sun Screen Camera Lots of film Water proof camera bag Back pack or fanny pack Current passport Travelers checks Swimming suit Short sleeve shirts Shorts Casual cloths for evenings out

  • Don't dress like a tourist.

    comfy cotton clothing. But don't wear shorts in the City. You will stand out from miles that you are a tourist. You can get most things here. No Bikini tops or topless bathing.

  • Adventure Travel packing

    If you are heading to the Gap, the Darien Gap, not the American store, then make sure you are preparred. You need to travel light. You also need the right equipment. I suggest you contact Patricia Upton. Email me and I can send you her email.

  • Packing List

    pool shoes..*smile in Darien ..Malaria care is nessesary... bring ..all your equipment..but when you think to buy another buy it here.

  • Packing List

    If we go back I will pack lots of lightwieght cotton clothes because ofthe heat and bugs. We always pack just the essentials when we are going onland. A trip on the cruise hsip is totally different-we're not moving the luggage! Get a Panama hat-it sure saves your head!
